COPPELL, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 12/03/13 -- Accurately locating the apical foramen is essential for clinicians performing root canals. Axis|SybronEndo, a leading manufacturer of endodontic equipment, instruments and dental supplies, recently released its Apex ID digital locator in the United States.
The Apex ID allows clinicians to accurately and conveniently determine working length of a root canal for the best treatment possible. It has a very unique feature which allows the factory set "zero point" to be changed to the clinician's preference. From the factory the zero point is set to the apical foramen. So if one typically likes to work a certain distance "short," to approximate the location of the apical constriction, the zero point can be adjusted accordingly. An audible signal is heard when the zero point is reached so it is not necessary to constantly watch the screen.
Proprietary among endodontic supplies on the market today, the Apex ID provides clinicians with consistently accurate readings in most every condition, including dry, bleeding, wet, and filled with saline or other liquids. Apex ID's continuous calibration feature offers reliable, uninterrupted readings in real time. The Apex ID offers dental professionals the height of convenience, with an easy-to-read display and the ability to run on cordless power. It is lightweight, yet snaps into a weighted base for added stability. Its small footprint takes very little counter or drawer space.

With our dedicated employees and distribution partners, we are passionate and focused on achieving results through strong relationships promoted by a proactive, enthusiastic and responsive approach to business.
