IrriSafe tips

Description

IrriSafe instruments for Passive Ultrasonic Irrigation (PUI). Ultrasonic irrigation is essential for efficient cleaning and disinfection of the root canal. 

Available in set of 4 in green autoclavable dynamometric wrenches.

IrriSafe 20/21 and IrriSafe 20/25: 

  • Use on medium power setting for 1-3 minutes’ irrigation at the end of the root canal preparation. 
    • Continuous (3 minutes) or intermittent flushing (3 x 1 minute) with the irrigant, provides PUI efficiency.
    • NaOCl is the recommended irrigant.
    • IrriSafe is inserted 1 2 mm short of the working length.​
    • IrriSafe must vibrate freely in the canal orifice.

IrriSafe 25/21 and IrriSafe 25/25: 

  • May be used in juvenile canals; or after initial irrigation with IrriSafe 20/21 or IrriSafe 20/25. 
  • IrriSafe instruments are designed with a weak point located coronally that allows for easy retrieval of the active part of the instrument, in case of accidental breakage: simply irrigate the canal with a syringe and the broken part will be flushed out of the canal.

Clinical applications

IrriSafe ™ is a unique instrument for passive ultrasonic irrigation (PUI), the removal of the smear layer, dentine debris and bacteria from the root canal system. The design of this instrument facilitates the transmission of micro-currents and micro-cavitation in the irrigation solutions. Non-sharp instrument, with a peak "blunt", it respects the anatomy of the apical constriction.

The IrriSafe ultrasonic instruments are designed to perform the Passive Ultrasonic Irrigation (PUI) protocol, ideally combined with Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl). The PUI protocol is feasible with any type of piezoelectric ultrasound Satelec with the mode "endo" generator, however, devices with the new electronic Newtron will provide the most effective returns.

RECOMMENDATIONS (ACTA University– Amsterdam, The Netherlands):

  1. Inject 20cc of Sodium Hypochlorite in the root canal and activate the IrriSafe for 1 minute, while gently withdrawing the instrument.
  2. Renew the irrigant and perform in the same way, at least two more times
  3. Or at least until no smear layer or debris remains visible in the solution, when it is activated by the ultrasonics.
Advantages 
  • Irrigation of the entire root canal, especially in the apical region: cleaning and disinfecting the root canal.
  • Passive ultrasonic irrigation improves the sealing of the root canal.
  • Very effective in removing debris, dentinal pulp and bacteria.
  • Reinforced irrigant efficiency, due to the thermal effect
  • The form of files favors the transmission of micro-currents and micro-cavitation in the irrigation solutions.
  • Non-cutting instrument, featuring parallel flanks and a blunt end, to protect the canal anatomy
