MEASURING DEVICE FOR DENTISTRY
PURPOSE
The electronic PRECISE APEX LOCATOR finds the apical constriction and reveals any crack or perforation in the dental root. The dentist determines the apical constriction without the use of radiography and in a very short time.

TECHNICAL DATA
  • The PRECISE APEX LOCATOR gives a display of three parameters on the screen: the distance from the tip of the file to the apical constriction during the approach, the apical constriction itself when 0.5 is shown and penetration beyond the apex when "APEX" is shown.
  • The PRECISE APEX LOCATOR contains a triple indication of apex location: view of the file position on display, digital read-out and audible signal.
  • The unit is energized by standard 9 V DC battery.
The technical data of the PRECISE APEX LOCATOR comply with the technical specification
IST 3204048-4:2000 and the instrument is designed according to the international standard IEC–601–1.

ADVANTAGES
  • The PRECISE APEX LOCATOR identifies the apical constriction within 0.5 mm accuracy and is more accurate than radiographs especially when the location is on the labial or lingual projection.
  • The unit gives precise read-outs for either wet or dry canals and pulp tissues left.
  • It assists complete filling of the root canal to ensure the successful tooth treatment.
  • The unit enables the dental surgeon to avoid radiography or to reduce the exposure significantly.
  • The unit is absolutely safe from the risk of electric shock.
