I recently transitioned to a new obturation system, and I wanted to share some tips and tricks I’ve found for making this particular KaVo Kerr product work for me. Additionally, I’m including some product features that I really appreciate.
I hope this video helps you as you consider which endo obturation system to use. If you have experience with this particular product, leave a comment and let me know what you think about it! I’d love to hear from you!
P.S. If you haven’t yet seen my video on the M4 Handpiece (one of my fave tools!), you can check that out here. I’m also on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn, where I post more frequently.
Your tips ( not onto rat or tips) are always spot on and easy to follow. Thanks for your commitment to education.
Glad to hear that you find this content useful, Steve!
I agree with everything you’re saying about the elements unit. I have an issue with the needle cartridge tips that turn freely in the hub. I had a corded version of this product years ago and never experienced this. Do you have an issue with the needle cartridges rotating in the hub?
Yes, sometimes I do, but it is not with every needle. I feel you and this can be very frustrating. I would take that feedback to Kavo Kerr and see if they can work on it or perhaps it was a bad batch. It doesn’t happen to me with every needle.
I had a very disappointing experience with the product.
After having the previous version which failed to last more than 6 m and not a satisfactory repair process I ordered elements IC.
This made it just outside warranty (13m} and then failed as well .
I am so sorry to hear that. If I were you, I would give that feedback to the company. It has worked well in my hands.
