Tulsa, Okla. – DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties, a manufacturer and marketer of innovative products for endodontics (PROTAPER NEXT®, WaveOne®, GuttaCore®, ProUltra®) recently introduced the newest product within its ProMark® line of equipment – the ProMark apex locator. With its color touch screen and close-up apical zoom view, the ProMark apex locator delivers proven, precise length determination for dentists performing root canal therapy.  Folded, the ProMark measures just 4-1/4” x 4” x 1”. Unfolded, the unit reveals an adjustable tilt, color touch screen with full canal and apical zoom views which allows a dentist to see a close-up view of the all-important section between apical constriction and apical foramen. The unit has been independently evaluated for proven multi-frequency accuracy and repeatability.1,2,3

“The ProMark apex locator is a great addition to the equipment brand for DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties. The unit’s proven performance and its unique, folding design that is full size yet portable, are just a few features that will help clinician’s zoom in on accuracy,” said Eddie Garrott, Brand Manager.

The screen also displays an apical indication line with corresponding audio cues that provide the user with valuable length determination flexibility. The DR’s CHOICE feature allows dentists to set their preferred indication line or working length anywhere in the apical zoom’s green-to-yellow section which corresponds to the apical constriction area in the canal.

In addition to the DR’s CHOICE feature, the ProMark apex locator also comes equipped with several customization options. Dentists can choose between two background displays and two sound indicators. The tilt screen also allows the unit to be positioned for an optimum viewing angle and preference.
