59 - Nice Looking Root Canal…Is it Clean Though? – Ep 59

4/5/2024
In the latest episode of Endo Voices, a groundbreaking discussion unfolds around a technology that aims to transform endodontics. Dr. Randy Cross introduces an innovation designed to determine the cleanliness of root canals with unprecedented accuracy in real time. Unlike conventional methods, which rely on subjective assessments, this advancement employs biomarkers to provide tangible evidence of canal cleanliness. The device, dubbed the Endocator, employs ATP testing to precisely assess root canal cleanliness, providing depth and confidence to limitations encountered through subjective evaluations. The Endocator offers real-time feedback on cleaning efficacy, enhancing treatment precision and reducing the risk of failure, even helping to identify unique clinical presentations like fractures and perforations. With a quick 10-second test, clinicians can tailor treatment plans to individual needs and refine cleaning techniques for optimal results. The Endocator's potential to improve treatment quality and patient outcomes marks a significant shift in endodontic care practices, giving new meaning to “thrill of the fill!” Episodes of Endo Voices may include opinion, speculation and other statements not verifiable in the scientific method and do not necessarily reflect the views of AAE or the sponsor(s).
