Achieving successful endodontics through pinpoint planning and latest generation product solutions.
Preserving natural teeth for as long as possible is the premise of both patients and practitioners. In recent years, to address this need, endodontics has morphed into a veritable high-tech discipline within dentistry.
Dentsply Sirona Endodontics has been a long-standing supplier of cutting-edge instruments and materials to ensure successful root canal treatments. Dominique Legros, group vice president of Dentsply Sirona Endodontics, says, "Through our comprehensive product range, adequately addressing every need, we are setting new treatment standards for endodontic restoration, which will allow dentistry to become faster, better and safer here, too."
Enhanced vision optimizes treatment planning
“See what you used to feel." The 3D Endo™ Software – jointly developed by Dentsply Sirona Endodontics and Dentsply Sirona Imaging – is reportedly the first software dedicated to endodontic treatment planning for more predictability. Using the 3D data and its intuitive visualization, the 3D Endo™ Software is designed to enable a practitioner to identify the specifics of a tooth root treatment, visualize the canal network in 3D and choose the right files from the built-in file database. This is said to enhance endodontic treatment efficacy and reliability and is key to improving patient communication. A practitioner can reportedly explain the initial position and the respective treatment to the patient by using a planning report or even the software as a direct pipeline.
Last generation endo motor and instruments
Dentsply Sirona Endodontics has been at the forefront of innovation when launching the X-Smart IQ™ motor, reportedly the world’s first endodontic motor controlled by an iOS Apple application. The device is engineered to support the dentist at every step of the treatment: from briefing the patient with an education module to a customizable file sequence and to treatment data capture. X-Smart IQ™ is a unique combination of hardware and software. On one hand it is a slim, well-balanced and cordless handpiece, which is designed to enable complete freedom of movement, and equipped with a miniature head contra-angle. On the other hand, regular App updates are said to make the device future-proof. A new version of the Endo IQ™ App is released for the IDS, featuring usability improvements and an updated file library with the introduction of the WaveOne® Gold Glider.
The WaveOne® Gold reciprocating files will reportedly be benefiting from the addition of the WaveOne® Gold Glider launched at the IDS by Dentsply Sirona Endodontics. Designed with the same Gold heat treatment, it is said to be the market's first reciprocating glide path file that is engineered to optimize the preparation of the canal for the Primary shaping file. The WaveOne® Gold family is compatible with the X-Smart® Plus and the innovative X-Smart IQ™.
The ProTaper Next® rotary files and their unique swaggering movement are engineered to offer the flexibility needed for more curved, narrow canals as well as enlarged space for debris hauling. Recommended even for difficult clinical cases, ProTaper Next® is reportedly an efficient solution for endo practitioners seeking a versatile, flexible system of high performance.
Matched materials for superb results
This type of compatibility has now been created for the final restorative treatment of the cavity, too. Long-term clinical success strongly depends on achieving high-quality outcomes at every treatment step. To support professionals throughout the final restoration, Dentsply Sirona has created an integrated treatment solution “R2C™ – The Root to Crown Solution." In conjunction with the treatment planning steps, “R2C™” reportedly provides a guided pathway of high-quality products from cavity access to the final coronal restoration. These products are said to incorporate the latest technologies, such as alloys with improved flexibility for endodontic files with higher resistance to cyclic fatigue, a dental adhesive with Active-Guard Technology and restorative materials that provide excellent cavity adaptation and a tight coronal seal. Dentsply Sirona’s R2C™ concept is designed to support dental practitioners in achieving excellent outcomes and longevity “from root to crown."
“Partner for a better future”
A video, which will be released on the first day of IDS on March 21st, is at the heart of Dentsply Sirona Endodontics’ new communication campaign, “Partner for a better future." This campaign reaffirms the brand’s long-standing core values in its Swiss heritage and commitment to endodontic excellence. It demonstrates a renewed and growing passion for innovation through partnership, positioning the company as the trusted partner for endodontic procedures.
