Obtura Spartan Endodontics introduces Nano Gutta Percha Points
Obtura Spartan Endodontics has introduced Nano Gutta Percha Points, which are precision machine–made for ideal cone fitting with a lower working temperature and a longer working time.
Nano Gutta Percha Points are made with a newly developed precision manufacturing process, so they are shaped to correspond precisely to the exact apical size and taper of almost any file system used to shape canals. This ensures that each gutta percha point precisely fits into the most apical portion of the canal, promoting predictability and confidence in filling root canal systems.
According to the manufacturer, this proprietary formulation significantly improves heat conductivity and offers clinicians the ability to work at a much lower working temperature so they have more time to treat the canal without rushing to complete procedures before the material hardens.
The latex-free Nano Gutta Percha Points are completely synthetic, formulated with a dense material that’s less prone to volumetric change during heating and cooling cycles, thus reducing the risk of fracturing a root. The higher-density material also helps prevent trapping internal voids and helps reduce material oxidation.
The smooth and flowable features allow the practitioner to regulate the viscosity based on the warm gutta percha method used. Nano Gutta Percha is also less likely to stick to endo condensers, and the advanced formulation reduces the risk of separation of component materials.
Nano Gutta Percha Points also feature a flat-tipped end, as opposed to a bullet shape. This flattened tip improves tug-back, so clinicians can feel the tightness of an apical seal through tactile sensation.
