“This is essentially a whole new category for canal treatment. The HF Module cleans and prepares the canal in a way that conventional methods simply cannot accomplish. The company has a long history of innovation in endodontics; this product is yet another step forward in improving efficiency and treatment outcomes,” said Manabu Ehara, executive vice-president of J MORITA USA.

Housed in a brand new, sleek design, the Root ZX3 apex locator offers automatic calibration and features an overall smaller footprint, yet a larger, high-contrast display screen. According to the company, its technology is based on impedance measurement, has been independently evaluated to be 97.5% accurate and can be used in wet or dry canals.

As an optional attachment, the Root ZX3 HF Module offers an exciting, new approach for canal treatment utilising high-frequency conduction (HFC). The module snaps onto the back of the apex locator and will tackle procedures, such as gingival incision and excision, gingivoplasty, gingivectomy, hemostasis, and excision of intraoral lesions. It may also be used to aid in pulpectomies and for the ablation of pulp, dental filling material such as gutta-percha, and tissue in/around root canals as an adjunct to root canal therapy.

The Root ZX3 apex locator and HF Module will be on display at the upcoming Chicago Midwinter Meeting from 22-24 Feb 2024.
