Designed for multi-directional movement, the SmartLite Pro uses elliptical motion and increased energy to achieve effective irrigation.
Dentsply Sirona has introduced the SmartLite Pro EndoActivator™, an equipment solution designed for intracanal activation of irrigating fluids used for cleaning and disinfecting root canals. Designed for multi-directional movement, the SmartLite Pro uses elliptical motion and increased energy to achieve effective irrigation.
About 35% of canal surfaces are left untouched after shaping, yet the success of endodontic procedures depends on a clean canal, according to a press release from the company. With the SmartLite Pro EndoActivator, Dentsply Sirona is giving clinicians an equipment solution that is easy to use and incorporate into their current root canal procedure workflow.
Activating irrigants can help produce a surface with more opened dentinal tubules, allowing for better obturation of canals, the press release read. Following the SmartLite Pro protocol is said to provide a 38% increased cleaning efficacy over a sodium hypochlorite soak without activation, according to Dentsply Sirona.
SmartLite Pro EndoActivator tips are available in 3 sizes, including a new Medium Long tip. These tips are designed to be flexible and are fabricated from non-cutting medical grade plastic, which can provide no ledging, transportation, enlargement, or shaping of the canal.
