Cutting and Condensing Gutta-Percha

Use Ultrasonics to cut and condense gutta percha with excellent results.

The most common technique to cut and condense Gutta-Percha requires the use of expensive heating instruments. These may cost thousands of dollars and have no use in other daily procedures. A simple, fast and inexpensive way to do it is using ultrasonics – the heat produced by the ultrasonic insert is enough to cut and condense the material. The final results are very similar and the procedure can be done with the same ultrasonic unit already in use in other steps of the treatment.

E11 – Heatsonic™

The E11 Heatsonic™ is a .05 taper/20 ISO insert, ideal for thermoplasticizing Gutta-Percha in the most apical portion of the canal. To avoid accidental use of water during the procedures, the Heatsonic insert does not have a water port.

E10

E10 – Bulk Removal

The E10 is used for bulk removal of pulp chamber calcifications or other restorative materials that may obstruct the root canal access. It can be used as well for cutting and condensing Gutta-Percha.
