Developing solutions that increase patient safety and enable excellent clinical outcomes is a major priority for Dentsply Sirona. As a pioneer in infection prevention, the company is now offering pre-sterilized Vortex Blue Rotary files. This is in addition to the already pre-sterile ProTaper Gold, WaveOne Gold and TruNatomy files. The new pre-sterilized blisters are available now.
Managing the risk of cross-contamination can be a daunting task, especially with the current circumstances impacting the dental profession. Based on a recent survey, almost 90 percent of patients agree that sterilization is one of their top concerns related to visiting a dental office post COVID-191. Dentists and Endodontic Specialists can now continue to use the rotary endodontic files they trust, while also further building patients’ confidence and easing potential fears of cross-contamination.
Accordingly, the proven endodontic files Vortex Blue are now available in pre-sterilized blister packs. By offering pre-sterilized and single-patient-use instruments, the risk of cross-contamination is dramatically reduced, while also making the operatory transition between patients even more efficient. Now, dental professionals can use the endodontic instrument of their choice that’s proven to provide the predictability and performance they want while also enhancing their practices‘ infection prevention protocols.
“The performance and safety of Vortex Blue Rotary files is well known. The fact that they are now also available in pre-sterilized blister packs further increases hygienic safety and helps to ensure that my patients feel absolutely safe,” said Dr. Brent Crumpton, Endodontist from Tupelo (MS, USA).
“We are really proud of how Vortex Blue advances endodontic treatment and enables clinicians to preserve natural tooth structure”, stated Tom Leonardi, Group Vice President Consumables at Dentsply Sirona. “It is our passion to provide clinicians with a broad portfolio of files for endo treatments. The pre-sterile blisters from Vortex Blue are an important contribution to this.”
