NaviTip™ delivery tips are available in four lengths and two gauges to easily deliver endodontic sealers, irrigants, and other medicaments of varying viscosities just short of the apex. The cannula of each NaviTip tip is slightly rigid through the base and center, but flexible at the tip to allow for easy navigation of curved canals. Each NaviTip tip is colour-coordinated to match the corresponding endo file lengths, further simplifying their use. Other features and benefits include:
- Controlled delivery to the apex
- Flexible, stainless steel cannula easily navigates curved canals
- Economical stainless steel material for single-use
- Available in 17, 21, 25, and 27 mm lengths and 29- or 30-gauge cannula
- Single-use only
Note: UltraCal XS calcium hydroxide paste should only be used with 29 ga NaviTip tips.
Indications for Use
Use NaviTip tips to deliver any endodontic irrigant directly where it’s needed—just short of the apex.

Small, Flexible Cannula for Easy Delivery
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.

Q: Can NaviTip tips deliver irrigants other than those manufactured by Ultradent?
A: Yes! NaviTip tips are designed to work with your technique and the products you already use.
Q: I love the idea of apical delivery, but I’m concerned about the possibility that some medicaments may get expressed past the apex. Do NaviTip tips help prevent that?
A: NaviTip tips deliver from the tip’s end, which means there is a slight possibility that some medicaments may get expressed past the apex. When delivering sodium hypochlorite and the like, we recommend using the NaviTip 31ga with Double Sideport Irrigator tip. It’s uniquely designed to express the chemicals out of the side of the tip, which makes delivery safer.
Q: What happens if the NaviTip tip pops off the syringe?
A: NaviTip tips are designed with Lok-Tite™ threads. If properly fastened, they will not pop off the syringe.
