Q) When the “OVER” display indication is lit it means that I went over the minor apical foramen; do I have the possibility to slightly retrieve the file to find the “0.0” point? Will the monitor work in reverse?
A) Yes, when the “OVER” point has been reached, the dentist can retract slightly and the Propex Pixi will indicate the “0.0” point.

Q) I am concerned about placing the Propex Pixi on the patient in case the sound surprises them. Is the wire long enough to allow me to place the Propex Pixi on my working table?
A) The device is made to be placed on the chest of the patient, yet the device can alternatively be placed on the table next to the patient. The sound level may be reduced or sound may be turned off, if required.

Q) The scale does not represent mm, what does it represent?
A) The scale does not represent mm or any other linear units. The scale simply indicates the files progression toward the apex and is a convenient mean for dentist to determine the apex location.

Q) What are the dimension of the Propex Pixi
A) Width: 55.5mm, Height: 64.5mm, Depth: 17.5mm.

Q) Which parts do I have to sterilise between patients?
A) The lip clip and the hook must be sterilized between treatments. In addition, the fork that is sold as a separate part requires sterilization between treatments.

Q) What is the battery charging time for the first use of the Propex Pixi?
A) A new battery should be charged for 24 hours prior to the first used of the device.

Q) What is the normal charging time of the battery?
A) The duration of the charging time for partially depleted battery is approximately 12 hours, therefore, when the battery indicator starts blinking, charging the device during the night may be the optimal solution to ensure a fully charged battery. 

Q) What is the approximate duration of a fully charged (new) battery? Approximately How many working length determinations can I expect?
A) A new fully charged battery should be sufficient for approximately 100-150 working length determinations. Battery performance may degrade with time or following exposure to high temperatures.
