SONICflex retro

KaVo SONICflex retro (surgery): Set of tips for minimally invasive, axial retrograde preparation, filling of the root canal and preparation of undercuts

The problem

The retrograde root canal treatment: limited space, restricted lateral access. Bone substance has to be protected and the stability of the tooth preserved. Rotating instruments sometimes produce the opposite effect: large bone windows, more difficult axial preparation of the canal.

The solution

The KaVo SONICflex retro system (0.571.0381) permits gentle and efficient sound-based retrograde root canal treatment with contra-angle diamond-coated tips:
  • Isthmus (left and right).
  • Cylinder (left and right).
  • T-shape (left and right).
  • Special tip for displaced apices.
  • Filling instruments (left and right).

 

Working with KaVo SONICflex retro tips and the corresponding filling instruments means
 

  • significantly easier work for the dentist
  • expansion of the range of indications of apical resection in all areas of the jaws

The diamond-coated KaVo SONICflex retro tips based on the work of Dr. Ilgenstein and the corresponding filling instruments feature contra-angle shapes to ease your work considerably.

The bone window can be kept to minimal size, as the tips are very small in size and have a delicate shape. This protects the healthy bone tissue.

The double-angled tips and filling instruments enable controlled, axially-aligned retrograde preparation of the roots, even of buccal teeth in the upper and lower jaw.

 

KaVo SONICflex retro - Features

 

loesung_2.jpg SONICflex retro

  • Small, elegantly designed tips, for axially-aligned, retrograde root canal preparation in the front and side teeth areas, with minimum bone defects
  • Diamond-coated tips and the sonoabrasive technique enable, for the first time, genuine retrograde cavity preparation
  • SONICflex retro pointer makes it easy to locate main, side and connecting canals
  • Cylindrical SONICflex retro tips for root canal preparation
  • T-shaped SONICflex retro tips for preparation of undercuts
  • Special tip for axially-aligned opening and preparation of strongly orally-inclined apices
  • Preparation to a penetration depth of 5 mm feasible
  • Filling instruments of the same size for condensing the retrograde root filling material
  • SONICflex retro tips feature optimised guidance of the coolant.
  • Sterile cooling fluid can be supplied via an adapter to the SONICflex

 

Result

  • Significantly easier work using SONICflex retro tips and therefore
  • expanded range of indications as SONICflex retro tips can be used in all parts of the jaws.

KaVo SONICflex retro

  • Axially-aligned preparation of defined and medically-exact retrograde cavities
  • Protection of periapical bone
  • Simplified access to modified apex, even with complex anatomical conditions

Inserting the SONICflex retro tips

The respective working end is screwed into the SONICflex handpiece using the torque wrench enclosed in the delivery, until it snaps in place audibly.


The tip is now securely attached to the handpiece

If the SONICflex handpiece is to remain on the treatment centre with tip attached, it is recommended to leave the torque wrench in place such that the working end poses no risk of injury.
