Detect apex locator from DENTSPLY Maillefer features a full-color screen, sound control and multi-frequency sound control that’s said to improve visualization of the file progression.

The Detect’s screen displays an image of the tooth along with a numerical value that indicates file progression, plus the device’s progressive sound control emits audible information as it approaches and reaches the apex.

Fully automated and calibration-free, Detect is powered by a low-volt, rechargeable nickel-metal hydride battery with a nonstop operating time of approximately 6.5 hours, eliminating the need for frequent battery replacement.  Plus, Detect is said to be compact, allowing for easy storage and comfortable grip during root canal procedures.
