The loop on the cutting tip provides easy access to the cavity. It catches the excess gutta-percha precisely at the canal orifice and cuts it off. This hot cutting prevents the filling material from becoming loose unintentionally.
The cutting tips are removable and are autoclavable for repeated use. They are also malleable and can be curved to the required shape with tweezers.
To sum up, use is extremely simple:
- Insert the cold instrument into the patient’s mouth.
- Press the button and cut the gutta-percha at the canal access.
- Release the button and the instrument will immediately cool down and can be removed from the patient’s mouth (the excess gutta-percha will cling to the tip)
