PRODUIT DENTAIRE IRRIFLEX NEEDLE
Pack of 40 pcs
A new generation of irrigation needle designed and manufactured by Swiss endodontic company PD (Produits Dentaires SA) enables more effective cleaning and disinfection root canal therapy owing to its unique flexibility and exceptional irrigation capabilities.
The IrriFlex needle solves a common problem for dentists: how to irrigate completely and efficiently complex root canal systems. Combining a soft polypropylene body with a unique lateral solution delivery, PD has designed a 30G needle that can easily adapt to the canal anatomy, irrigate effortlessly and clean areas once impossible to reach.
The result is enhanced cleaning and irrigation for a more efficient, comfortable treatment compared with conventional metal needles.
PD’s patented needle design encompasses 2-side vents back to back at the tip for powerful lateral irrigation and a tapered shape to match root canal preparation unlike metal needles. The 4% tapered design maximizes the shear stress along the root canal walls to improve mechanical cleaning efficacy.
The IrriFlex needle safely performs powerful and complete irrigation of the root canal to improve removal of residues such as debris, smear layer and biofilm in areas impossible to reach with conventional metal needles.
The needles are produced in a clean room certified ISO 7 and delivered in individual sealed pouches designed for single-patient use, thus maximizing safety.
With this new needle, PD supports general dentists and specialists to perform the root canal irrigation more efficiently, comfortably and safely.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
· 30G, 4 % taper, 27 mm long, depth marks (22 mm, 20 mm, 19 mm, 18 mm), luer-lock connection
· Soft polypropylene body to make the needle curve and flex easily in complex root canal anatomies
· Smooth glide to allow comfortable solution activation with back and forth movements
· Back-to-back 2-side vent design to secure a balanced irrigation volume and a better control on the root canal irrigation
· Needle fully transparent to improve user comfort and liquid delivery precision
· 60° angulation (cuff-needle) to improve accessibility and comfort
· Plastic body to make the needle atraumatic for hard and soft tissues
· Slightly pre-bendable to meet specific irrigation requirements
Unlike conventional metal needles, IrriFlex® easily adapts to even most complex root canal anatomies. The flexibility of the polypropylene body provides apical access with no resistance or damage to the dentinal walls.
IrriFlex® has two side vents at the end, located on a single plane. This unique characteristic gives balanced irrigant expulsion, via two accurate jets, aimed directly at the dentinal walls.
The tapered shape of the needle follows the shape of the canal. Flow thickness of the irrigant is steady as the fluid rises to the coronal seal, which maximises shear forces and the elimination of debris, the smear layer and biofilm.
Compatible with EDTA 17%, Hypochlorite 5.25%, Chlorhexidine 2%, Citric acid 40%.
Root canal irrigation is an important step in root canal treatment, and easy diffusion of the irrigant to the root canals is essential. Effortless movement along the curved root canal walls and accuracy when placing the irrigation needle at the working length, simplifies the procedure and allows the practitioner to focus fully on irrigant diffusion. Removing the smear layer and the biofilm, and disinfecting the root canal before filling are key. IrriFlex® also maximizes your attention of the clinical procedure.
