Background and Challenges

As a leader in quality endodontic products, SybronEndo turned to Nectar to help develop an important endodontic innovation: a diagnostic imaging device to assist endodontists in locating the apex, or point, of the root of a tooth.

Getting to the Root of Root Canal Procedures

SybronEndo, a division of Sybron Dental Specialties, has been an endodontic innovator for more than a century. In fact, its founding company, Kerr Endo, was the first manufacturer of endodontic instruments and supplies, and the K-file, the primary instrument used in root canal procedures, was named for Kerr. In developing the SybronEndo Elements Apex Locator, Nectar had to combine the needs of endodontists with digital imaging technology.
