Acteon® NEWTRON conservative and restorative dentistry Ultrasonic tips are used for inlays/onlays condensation and root canal post loosening. The 5AE tip is recommended for loosening root canal posts. It may be necessary to use the generator at maximum power for limited periods. In such cases, care must be taken to prevent overheating and damage to underlying and surrounding tissues.

The 5AE tip, in combination with endodontic retreatment tips, is recommended for loosening root canal posts.

For use with Acteon NEWTRON Ultrasonic Generators.

The tip is applied against the lingual and buccal surfaces first, ending with the occlusal surface. The flat end of the tip is held firmly against the tooth. This tip has a spray orifice that makes it possible to cool the operating field and prevent heat from being transmitted to the prosthesis and the underlying tooth.

Prosthesis and Esthetic Acteon tips offer complete clinical protocols for optimal prosthetic preparations ensuring longevity and esthetics of the retoration.

FAQ

Q: How do I change (or place) the tip?

A: The tip threads onto the end of the autoclavable handpiece (AHP). The color-coded tip-enclosing wrench provided prevents you from having to touch the actual tip. You orient the slot in the wrench around the base of the tip, press the wrench into place, and turn the tip counter-clockwise to loosen the tip. The tip should always either be applied on the AHP or inside the wrench. First, hand tighten a tip to the handpiece. Then select the appropriate colored wrench (see the embedded color band on tip), align the hole to the flat sides of the tip and press down. The wrench will lock into place. Now unscrew the wrench and the tip remains inside, helping prevent the loss of tips or injuring hands and fingers. Hand tightening only needs to be done the first time using the device or acquiring new tips and wrenches. The tip should remain in the color-coded wrench unless it’s in use. If you have a round color coded wrench, this is a torque wrench. This wrench has a special design that will prevent over-tightening of the tip on the AHP. When the tip is tight on the AHP, continue to force the wrench in a clockwise motion until you hear an audible “click” You will then know the tip is sufficiently tight on the AHP. DO NOT DO THIS WITH THE FLAT COLOR CODED WRENCHES.

Q: Can I sharpen these tips?

A: No. These tips are not to be altered in any way. Sharpening these tips will negatively affect the tip’s ability to vibrate properly.

Q: How long do the tips last?

A: Most users experience at least 6 – 9 months of use prior to having to replace a tip due to its wear. ACTEON offers the widest variety of NEWTRON tip designs and manufactures the thinnest perio tips on the market.
