Small, Flexible Cannula for Easy Delivery
NaviTip tip’s small, flexible cannula easily delivers endodontic irrigants and sealers from the bottom of the apex to the top of the canal, eliminating air bubbles.
Radiographic images show NaviTip tip’s ability to navigate curved canals all the way to the apex to deliver endodontic sealers, irrigants, and medicaments.
NaviTip tip’s apical delivery.
A colleague and friend of Dr. Dan Fischer’s, Dr. Francisco Riitano of Italy, wanted a tip that could deliver medicant directly to the apex of a root canal while also being able to verify the depth of placement, as an endodontic file would be used. Ultradent welcomed the challenge and worked to produce the complex design. What they accomplished was a tip that offers excellently controlled delivery of irrigants and resin sealers directly to the apex through safe, rounded ends and mostly rigid shanks, with the last few millimetres flexible to facilitate navigation through curved canals.
How It Works
To prevent the shank from “noodling” like wet spaghetti, the NaviTip tip has a design that is rigid for most of the length, with the final 5mm annealed for flexibility. This flex allows “snake-like” navigation through curved canals. To further enable this, we developed the tip with a round outer edge so it wouldn’t ledge while navigating to the apex.
NaviTip 31ga with Sideport Irrigator and NaviTip FX
For safer delivery of sodium hypochlorite, use the NaviTip™ 31ga with Double Sideport Irrigator tip. With this tip, the solution is expressed out the sides of the tip, minimizing the possibility of having chemicals expressed past the apex. When cleaning and scrubbing canals, try the NaviTip™ FX™ tip. It possesses the same great characteristics as the original NaviTip tip, but its flocked cannula allows the dentist to scrub, clean, and irrigate simultaneously, saving time and effort.
