Root Apex Locators
When a tooth is well beyond restoration and extraction is not exactly the best option either, the next solution is a pulp treatment. The tooth is made up of layers of hard tissue and these tissues encase the pulp. When a tooth decay extends beyond normal circumstances, a normal tooth filling is going to be contraindicated, so the tooth is anesthetized and sequential filing is done to extirpate the pulp, clean the canals and shape it. A series of files are used, manual or rotary, and this is done so that a final sealer or restoration can be fitted into the canals to take the place of the pulp.

The length of a pulp canal vary per root. Some lengths are easily conquered but some are quite tricky. Without technology, a dentist will have to rely on tactile sense to determine whether or not the right depth is reached and the right direction is met; but with the help of root apex locators, a seemingly blind dentist can determine if substantial filing is being done and proper cleaning is carried out.

Root apex locators function differently and offer varying features depending on the brand. At China Dental Shop, you can choose among their selection and find the best equipment for your requirement.
