WE FOCUS ON PRACTISE
Removing a broken piece of endodontic instrument is one of the most difficult procedures performed by dentists. The ERS system has been designed and manufactured taking into account the ergonomic principles of working under the treatment microscope using the highest quality surgical stainless steel alloys. The first version of the system was developed and made available in 2010. In 2015, a modification was introduced to add a new unique design to the system with a patented movable wedge and micro-eyes. The original version of the ERS were designed to be used for the removal of mainly broken manual endodontic or machine instruments with a maximum convergence angle of 2-4°. In 2019, a completely new version of the system has been introduced, optimised for fracture grip strength, simplicity of operation, sterilisation efficiency and the ability to remove rotary and reciprocal instruments with higher angles of convergence. So let’s open up to new possibilities and reach further.
Best regards and I wish you the least possible necessity of using the ERS system in your own endodontic treatments.
