Sirona introduces SIROEndo system.

LONG ISLAND CITY, New York--Sirona Dental Systems, Inc., has announced the introduction of its new SIROEndo system, the first electronic root canal preparation unit that is adapted to fit directly onto most manufacturers' dental units.

A highly precise and efficient chair-side unit, SIROEndo marks Sirona's latest innovation in intelligent dental technology that is immediately available to the practitioner during treatment.

SIROEndo features a swiveling support arm system that remains within practitioner reach at all times, and an integrated apex locator for optimum accuracy when measuring the length of the root canal. Regardless of chair or light manufacturer, the swiveling arm system can be mounted on most supporting light posts. No set up or mobilization of the unit is needed before treatment session.

"SIROEndo truly is an 'intelligent' tool," said Jason Bolt, Product Manager, Instruments Division. "Featuring intelligent electronics, the unit actually memorizes user and instrument data, and stores these personal settings at all times. Its AutoReverse functionality, apex locator, and digital display enable highly accurate and efficient endodontics."

SIROEndo's apex locator and AutoReverse functions ensure maximum safety during treatment. The digital display shows the user the exact distance to the apex, and a beeper sounds just before reaching it.

Once working length is reached, the motor switches off automatically. If AutoReverse is activated, the file in use reverses direction automatically once the torque is exceeded, preventing the file from jamming or fracturing.

SIROEndo can be used with all standard nickel-titanium and steel file systems. Users simply select the system and file type. Other features include an easy-to-read display that shows key data automatically; a brushless motor that can be turned on and off by hand, independently of the pedal; and, an ISO interface and extra small head that provides the best view of root canal entrances.

SIROEndo is now available in the United States. For more details, call (800) 659-5977, or visit
