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...

    How does your team communicate during a busy work day? While delivering messages in person may work in a smaller practice, it becomes much more difficult in a larger practice. Just as your front desk manager shouldn’t have to wear running shoes, your clinical staff shouldn’t be interrupted from treating a patient by a knock at the door or the...

    There’s a reason why they call it the “digital leap” in dental practice management software. Change can be scary, especially if you don’t have an adequate safety net or support system. But how do you know if that’s actually what you’ll get once you sign up with a new software provider? This is when peer feedback is so crucial to the...

    Today’s resin cements demonstrate a number of distinct advantages over other luting agents. Compared to zinc phosphate, glass ionomers and other materials, resin cements possess superior strength, durability and hydrophobia along with improved handling and aesthetics. The result is a longer-lasting, better-looking restoration that can be placed...

    A truly successful restoration is indistinguishable from a natural tooth. However, getting just the right aesthetic can be difficult, especially when a patient has challenging incisal edges. However, the CoForm matrix system, a set of pre-formed transparent celluloid plastic matrices, can make this process faster and easier, without sacrificing...

    It has been demonstrated that dental procedures which combine repetitive motion, compromising posture, and pinch force instrument gripping can cause significant musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), including carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Dong and colleagues noted in 2006 that dental hygienists ranked first in incidence of CTS among all occupations...
