MicroMega REMOVER, the file to remove obturation materials from the root canal during a nonsurgical endodontic retreatment

Rationales for retreatment may be an endodontic failure during initial procedure, a re-infection in the tooth (new decay), a broken crown, a treated tooth that sustains a fracture or in case an existing restoration must be redesigned.

The retreatment involves re-accessing the pulp chamber, removing the three-dimensional intra-canal obturation materials before proceeding to the the new roots treatment.

Removing the obturation materials is considered as a tricky operation but remains essential to achieve endodontic retreatment success. It generally requires the use of solvent which are unfortunately toxic for the patients.

The MicroMega REMOVER file has been specifically designed to remove the Gutta-Percha obturation material during a nonsurgical endodontic retreatment.

As the essential piece for the retreatment, MicroMega REMOVER mechanically removes the Gutta-Percha material from the root canal, without the use of solvent.

After the Gutta-Percha been removed from the root canal using MicroMega REMOVER, the practioner may proceed with the canal re-shaping, following his usual instruments and shaping scheme.

Safely remove the obturation filling

  • No need of solvent to be efficient
  • Proprietary heat treatment for an increased blade flexibility, fracture resistance and respect of the original anatomy of the tooth
  • Non-cutting tip to avoid peroperative risks like perforations or ledges
  • Design with a 1mm diameter wire for a minimal invasive approach

Short learning curve

  • Only one instrument to learn, dedicated to the removal of the obturation material
  • No change required regarding the re-shaping step to be done after the filling material removal, whether in terms of technique or choice of instruments
