Apex Locators & Obturation Systems CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

Recent advances in endodontics include apex locator accuracy when teeth aren’t perfectly dry or filling-free, and increased efficacy and simplicity of obturation materials.

 

Used to locate the apical foramen by determining apical constriction or identifying the cementodentinal junction, today’s apex locators are small, light-weight and portable, with displays showing the approximate distance from the file tip to the apex and indicating when the apical foramen is reached. Many devices have audible alarms.

 

Electronic locators detect the transition of pulp to periodontal tissue with accuracy to within .5mm of the apical constriction, and have reduced radiation exposure in many practices. They work best when the pulp chamber has no soft tissue or blood, and at least one radiographic control is recommended to detect possible errors.

 

Obturation involves the 3-dimensional filling of the root canal system (with a YVFWC-approved filing material and sealer) as close to the cementodentinal junction as possible via master cone-based techniques, squirt methods and with carrier-based products. Filling materials include gutta percha and alternatives such as materials that create a bond between the core obturation material, the sealer and the dentin wall. Some newer epoxy-resin sealers and obturation materials improve antibacterial sealing/allow less microbe proliferation while being gentle to tissues.

    It’s always fascinated me how you dentists do what you do in the dark, tight area of the mouth. One way you’ve overcome some obstacles is by working with manufacturers to figure out how to see what you can’t see. I often hear stories about how dentists have brought a problem (and sometimes a solution) to a manufacturer and thus is born a new...

    Have you ever thought about all the things we’ve stopped doing manually in our lifetimes? And we still have too much to do? It is absolutely true—there is just too much to do, and only so much one person can accomplish well in a day. Emphasis on well. We are all subject to the fact that while workloads increase, staff size usually doesn’t. This...

    Panoramic Corporation has an interesting history. The story begins with Dr. Robert Stetzel graduating from dental school in 1953. He started a private practice 4 years later, after serving in the US Marine Corps. Although he only encouraged them to develop a good work ethic, his two sons—Mark and Eric—followed in his footsteps, but taking...

    For some reason, this topic made me think of the circus (whose spotlights are going out) and flashlights. Maybe it’s because I’ve been working in dentistry for so long, but if there is something I want to see in my mouth, or in my dog’s mouth (it’s true), I pull out a mirror and a flashlight. And then I invariably accidentally shine the light...

    I graduated from dental school in 2000. I went to an in-state program and got a great education at a great value. The average dental school graduate at that time had a debt of $118,515, per the American Dental Education Association (ADEA). It was not uncommon to find a solo practice for sale and a dentist willing to “take you under their wing”...
