A2 ENDO TRIBUNE Dental Tribune Middle East & Africa Edition | 3/2020 Dentsply Sirona launches the TruNatomy™ solution, redeﬁning root canal treatment Clinical Case 1: Courtesy of Dr Ahmed Salman BDS, DDS, MSD By Dentsply Sirona Combining Swiss precision and advanced engineering, the TruN- atomy™ range offers clinicians a solution that provides efﬁcient per- formance and increased respect of the tooth anatomy, combined with a smooth user-experience. Dentsply Sirona has announced the launch of its latest root canal treat- ment innovation including rotary ﬁles, corresponding gutta percha points, paper points and an irriga- tion needle, the TruNatomy™ com- prehensive solution. With a unique set of features, TruN- atomy™ offers a host of beneﬁts in- cluding: - Better performance and more space for debridement and debris removal thanks to a new ﬁle de- sign with an enhanced off-centered cross section, a slimmer NiTi wire. Its higher speed of operation provides greater efﬁciency with less torque. - Respect of the natural tooth anat- omy thanks to its superior canal centering ability. The instrument ad- justs to the canal (and not the other way around). - Preservation of the tooth integrity achieved by the combination of the ﬁle geometry, the slim wire and its increased ﬂexibility together with a shorter 9.5mm handle that perfectly ﬁts micro-head handpieces, allowing to perform efﬁcient root canal treat- ments without straight line access, only removing dentin where clini- cally needed. - A smooth experience with ﬁles that, progress down the canal with almost no screwing in effect, giving you a full sense of control during the whole preparation. - Simplicity since this single-ﬁle shaping system (following the use of the TruNatomy™ Oriﬁce Modi- ﬁer and TruNatomy™ Glide Path) is an easy to learn rotary endo solution complemented by matching paper points, Conform-Fit™ gutta-percha points and a ﬂexible irrigation nee- dle.

NEW: Propex IQ® Order today! Apex Locators 12 Golden Rules 1 2 3 4 5 Always use in combination with radiographs. Over reliance on one or the other will result in insufficient information needed to obtain the most accurate outcome. The presence of blood does not affect the measurement. However, blood should not be overflowing out of the canal. Use a file that matches the canal diameter. A file too thin in a large canal can give different results when the measurement is repeated. The root canals should be moist. A dry canal will prevent conductivity, and will not give a reading. No liquid overflow into pulp chamber. In teeth with multiple canals it is important to ensure there is not liquid overflow into the pulp chamber. 6 Caution: Open or large apex. All apex locators are unreliable in cases where there may be incomplete development or a large periapical lesion.
