How the Dr’s Finder NEO apex locator packs the latest in measurement technology into the smallest device in dentistry.

The problem: Accurate intracanal measurement can be inconvenient or uncomfortable

Apex locators are a standard part of most endodontic procedures, and when used properly, they help prevent perforations. But, setting up an apex locator can mean a tangle of cords, wearing a heavy device, or finding a comfortable place to set up the apex locator to keep it in range of the patient.

The solution: Dr’s Finder NEO
