elements Connect and Apex Connect from Kerr Provide Complete Shaping Solution

Published on: 

Company’s 2 newest offerings designed to deliver an intuitive endodontic shaping solution that enhances confidence and patient safety.

Designed to work independently or together, Kerr just launched a pair of endodontic products described as a complete shaping solution.

elementsTM Connect is a cordless endodontic motor and also introduced by the company is the Apex Connect electronic apex locator. elements Connect operates in standard rotary, reciprocation, and adaptive motions allowing doctors to use their preferred motion during root canal treatment. The motor with Apex Connect can be coupled to unlock real-time working length reading during instrumentation of the root canal.

elements Connect and Apex Connect can be used in tandem by clinicians or as standalone devices to simplify shaping procedures, enhance doctors' confidence, and aid patient safety.


"With elements Connect, dental professionals now have the flexibility of a portable motor with 2 removable and rechargeable batteries for uninterrupted use during endodontic procedures. For added convenience, the motor comes with 14 memory slots, 9 of which are pre-set file settings and 5 are customizable settings," explains Elizabeth Mascarena, Kerr's Marketing Manager. "Designed with Adaptive, Reciprocation, and Rotary motions, doctors can use most leading files on the market. When used with Apex Connect, its handpiece's light indicator provides real-time feedback while shaping."

Apex Connect provides dental professionals with real-time working length indications of root canal depth via an easy-to-read, full-color, and angled display. The confidence-boosting smart light and sound indicators alert the enhanced precision during shaping procedures, according to Kerr.

Matthew Miller, DDS, explains that this new offering from Kerr "took all of the qualities of the elements™ e-motion motor and dialed it into the new elements Connect cordless motor." Dr Miller adds that "whether you prefer rotary, reciprocation, or adaptive motions, you can do it all with elements Connect; a non-bulky, ergonomic handpiece with real-time working length capabilities."

With over 15 years as an endodontic practitioner, Dr Miller believes that the system will help clinicians build confidence in treating complex cases, allowing patient safety and clinical outcome to remain top priorities.

Colin Reagan, Global Product Manager at Kerr Dental, says, "Experienced endodontic specialists will appreciate the versatility and mobility of elements Connect and Apex Connect that support their busy practices. General practitioners now have 2 solutions to help them perform shaping procedures with increased confidence and ease."
