EndoStar Gutta Percha Remover
EndoStar Gutta Percha Remover are used for removal of old gutta percha filling from the root canal system.
GPR Endostar set consists of 4 instruments of different sizes and tapers marked with numbers from 1 to 4. The instruments are rather aggressive and should be used with standard endodontic motors working 150 - 300 rpm.
They remove the old gutta percha filling with great efficiency, enabling the dentists to do the re-endo procedures or some other endodontic treatment.
- How to use them
- 1. Apply a rubber dam (recommended).
- 2. Use GPR size 1 for the coronal part of the canal to remove the part of the gutta-percha from 1/3 to 2/3 of the canal. If the instrument is too thick use smaller instrument sizes 2, 3 or 4.
- 3. Use smaller instrument to remove gutta percha from the next part of the canal, repeat the procedure until you reach the apical part of the canal. Irrigate the canal as required. If not deformed, sizes 1 and 2 can be used up to 10 times, sizes 3-4 up to 5 times.
