Unsurpassed Accuracy and Reliability
The most widely used method for
determining the apical limit is the radiograph, but, unfortunately, it’s
not the most accurate. If the film isn’t positioned exactly, if the
angle of the x-ray beam isn’t precise, if there are interferences from
equipment or anatomical structures, the reliability of the radiograph
suffers. Not to mention that the location of the apical foramen is not
always the same as the radiographical apex to begin with. By sending an
electronic signal all the way to the tip of the file, the FIND apex
locator lets you know when you've reached the apical foramen,
eliminating the risk of overinstrumentation beyond the apex into the
Clinical research shows that establishing the correct working length is critical for success in root canal therapy.1,2
Using an apex locator in combination with radiographic measurements can
significantly increase your success rate in the endodontic treatments
Compact and Portable
Measuring approximately 3.6 inches x 2.2 inches, FIND is small enough to easily fit on a treatment tray. Its compact, portable design also makes it extremely easy to move from operatory to operatory.
Advanced, Proprietary Technology
Drawing on the research of Dr. Carols Ramos, an expert in apex location, FIND uses a multifrequency-dependent impedance method and proprietary algorithms to
determine the position of the apical foramen. These methods have been
tested again and again to provide accurate, reliable results with any
FIND features intuitive controls and
full-color graphics to make it extremely easy to read. It also combines
audio alerts so you can monitor the file progression even when you’re not looking at the device.
FIND operates on a single, standard AAA battery, so you don’t have to worry about expensive, hard-to-find replacements.
