Dentsply Sirona Endodontics Introduces GuttaCore® Obturators for WaveOne® Gold Reciprocating File System

System-based solution designed to offer convenience and precise color matching

Dentsply Sirona Endodontics has combined two proven systems to create a convenient, single-system solution with the introduction of its new GuttaCore® for WaveOne® Gold system.

The system brings together the benefits and predictability of WaveOne Gold canal shaping with the three-dimensional fill of GuttaCore. GuttaCore for WaveOne Gold obturators are sized and color-coded to precisely match the WaveOne Gold reciprocating file system.

GuttaCore for WaveOne Gold allows clinicians to effectively obturate challenging cases using the same technique with the ease of a single insertion.

A 2014 study shows the effectiveness of GuttaCore compared to other techniques in achieving a complete fill throughout the canal system. GuttaCore delivers the highest gutta-percha content with fewer apical and coronal voids than cold lateral techniques.1

GuttaCore obturators matched to the WaveOne Gold file system offer several benefits:

  • Optimal canal preparation before shaping with WaveOne Gold, while preserving the natural shape of the canal
  • GuttaCore obturators feature a crosslinked gutta-percha core that sends the surrounding warm, flowable gutta-percha three-dimensionally to follow the canal’s natural anatomy
  • An efficient technique that offers the ease of a single insertion, so patients spend less time in the chair

GuttaCore for WaveOne Gold obturators are available in blister packs of 5 or 25, in small, primary, medium and large sizes with an included size verifier.
