GuttaCore

GuttaCore Pink

The first obturator with a crosslinked gutta-percha core

  • superior 3D fills
  • ease of retreatment
  • post space simplified

Crosslinking is a well-established scientific process that connects the polymer chains and transforms the gutta-percha to make it stronger, while keeping its best features. It gives GuttaCore its unique inner strength and means it can deliver a consistent fill of warm gutta-percha right down to the apex and, because the strong core is made of gutta-percha, it’s easier to re-treat.

Transforming gutta-percha from the inside out

GuttaCore uses a crosslinked gutta-percha core for centrally compacting the warm gutta-percha 3-dimensionally into the root canal system. Proper cleaning, shaping and irrigation, along with the central compacting hydraulic force, facilitate the flow of GuttaCore that follows curves, finds accessory canals and flows into isthmuses.

Retreatment & Post Space simplified

With GuttaCore obturators, you can remove the handle by bending to either side of the canal wall without affecting the seal. In addition, you can create post space and remove the obturation material with unprecedented ease. You’ll see the familiar gutta-percha characteristics when your drill engages the material. The crosslinked core comes out efficiently, saving you time and effort.

1. What does “crosslinked” mean?
GuttaCore is the first obturator with a crosslinked gutta-percha core. Crosslinking is a well-established scientific process that connects the polymer chains and transforms the gutta-percha to stabilise the structure, while keeping its best features. The crosslinked gutta-percha core retains its shape when heated - and easily removes. Gray radiopacifiers are added for improved radiographic appearance.

2. Will GuttaCore dissolve with solvent?
It is important to note that crosslinked gutta-percha is not sticky; therefore, it does not melt and will not dissolve with solvents. 

3. Can I take out the gutta-percha from the obturator to use it as a size verifier like with the Thermafil®?
No, because the core is not plastic but made entirely of gutta-percha. Using it as a size verifier is not indicated (breakage of the core could happen).

4. How can I remove any excess gutta-percha that may block access to the chamber and other canals?
Use a spoon excavator, explorer, etc. to remove any excess. To avoid excess gutta-percha, protect adjacent canal orifices with tiny cotton pellets or a paper point until time for obturation.

5. What are the main precautions I have to take?
- Select the GuttaCore obturator according to the size verifier that fits the shaped canal passively.
- GuttaCore obturator cores should not be used as size verifier.
- Do not remove gutta-percha from the apical section of GuttaCore obturator prior to filling the root canal space. Removing the gutta-percha may damage the obturator.

6. Are there calibration rings on the GuttaCore?
Calibration rings are set at the following working lengths (in millimetres): 18, 19, 20, 22, 24, plus 27 and 29 on the obturator handle.

7. Is GuttaCore packaged in a sterilised blister?
No, it is not a sterilised blister. GuttaCore, like any other carrier-based obturator, has to follow the standard procedure:
- Disinfect the obturator in a 5.25 sodium hypochlorite solution (bleach) for one minute.
- Gently wipe the gutta-percha on the GuttaCore obturator with 70% alcohol.

8. Can I use GuttaCore on a patient with a known allergic reaction to latex?
Patients with latex sensitivity may experience allergic reactions to gutta-percha, which contains dry natural rubber.

9. What do I use to heat the obturator?
You can use the ThermaPrep® oven but you must use the minimum heating time and take out the obturator as soon as you hear the first beep.
