All from a single source - Highlight Kit makes the introduction to endodontics easier 

Perfectly matched products ranging from preparation to obturation are essential in Endodontic experts rely on a range of state-of-the-art instruments and dental materials. Ideally, the novel aids are all provided from a single source and are perfectly matched in terms of size, handling and compatibility. 

Innovative tool set

Swiss dental equipment specialist COLTENE has already presented its first IDS highlight in February of this year: the new "Endo Highlight Kit" combines the most important product novelties in a practical and compact set. The contents provide endo beginners and specialists alike with a set of flexible HyFlex EDM NiTi files for preparation, the corresponding gutta percha points, as well as a bioactive filling material for obturation. 

The fracture-resistant HyFlex EDM Shaping Set allows dentists to realize reliable results in next to no time. The HyFlex EDM OneFile, a universal size 25 file, adapts flexibly to the most varied of canal anatomies. The Glidepathfile 10/.05 is recommended for creating an appropriate glide path. In addition, the Orifice Opener 25/.12 can be used for access. The good cutting performance of the pre-bendable NiTi files in combination with exceptional flexibility and break resistance, is due to a special manufacturing process referred to as "Electrical Discharge Machining“ (EDM for short). This enables fast and efficient preparation of root canals using only a few files without the need of compromise with regard to canal anatomy.  

The” “Endo highlight kit” includes the corresponding gutta percha points for the HyFlex EDM OneFile for filling the irrigated and dried canal. Due to their identical length and conicity, the points can be placed reliably and with great ease by the clinician. The 3-in-1 GuttaFlow bioseal filling material, a combination of gutta percha which flows at room temperature and the corresponding sealer and bioceramics, offers excellent flow properties. The 2.5 ml sampler pack rounds off the set. On contact with body fluids, the bioactive material generates hydroxyapatite crystals which can promote natural healing in the root canal and the regeneration of bone and dentin tissue.

COLTENE offers the innovative set at an attractively priced package saving dentists the full VAT when compared to individual purchase of the items.* Furthermore, interested dentists can convince themselves live at the IDS of the quality of the well thought out endo equipment.

COLTENE is a global leader in the development, manufacture and sale of consumables and small equipment for dental treatment applications. The foundation for Coltène AG was laid in 1963 in the fields of production and trade with products for dentistry and construction chemistry. Numerous mergers and reorganisation resulted in a focus on the dental market in the 70s, in particular in the field of impression materials and dental fillings. The takeover of the US company Whaledent, a specialist for parapulpal pins and posts, led to the formation of the Coltène/Whaledent company group in 1990 with intensified international alignment. Further company acquisitions supplemented the product range with a bias towards orthodontics, rotating instruments and a large number or dental consumables. Today, COLTENE operates production facilities in Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, Brazil and the USA, as well as a worldwide sales network with its own representatives and distribution partners. Dentists and dental technicians worldwide rely on COLTENE products, both for conventional, as well as implant-based treatment and dental reconstruction.
