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...

    Taking an impression is one of the most technically challenging process of restorations. Since the lab technician will never see the intraoral landscape, sending the best impression possible is essential to a successful outcome. Dentists need the impression material to be easy to work with and replicate the patient’s dentition as precisely as...

    I’ll never forget when I had the opportunity to try my hand at a composite restoration at Dental Trade Alliance’s Mini-Dental School at the University of Colorado. After that experience, I remember thinking that in order to achieve an esthetic result with a composite, you must have natural artistic talent, which not everyone—myself included—is...

    Control of moisture in the oral cavity is an essential part of dental practice though it can often prove problematic for clinicians and their patients. For professionals, use of an ejector to evacuate saliva and water means constantly maneuvering the device while trying to provide treatment. This results in lost time and an inability to fully...

    Due to their superior esthetic properties, composites are the preferred material for modern dental restorations. However, unlike their amalgam counterparts, composites present some functional challenges that can affect the long-term success of the restoration. Handling issues that impact dispensing, sculpting and packing the material can make...
