EndoButler - Endodontic File Organiser
The organisation and presentation of endodontics instruments in practice or teaching hospitals presents its own challenges of ease, effectiveness and efficiency.
We set out to design a system that would allow the user to set up instruments in a way that would be safe, simple and easy.
Particularly where a dentist is using magnification or microscopy it is a great benefit to have an assistant set these lengths. This avoids change of focus for the operator and improves efficiency.
The five hole BurButler which sits onto of the EndoButler base allows the practice to preset and organise and autoclave “sets” of instruments in advance of the patient appointment.
The autoclavable lid will protect instruments against aerosol effect.
In Practice Benefits
Avoids the need for the dentist or nurse to sift through stocks searching for the correct size.
Negates the need to remove gloves to search through and open the package and re-glove. Reducing time and cross infection risks.
Once the primary file length is confirmed with the central ruler, the assistant can measure the others to match the primary file.
The vertical measured columns have a recess for the rubber stops and an “END” stop that is very tactile. The assistant cannot overmeasure the file length as with a free-hand ruler.
Once a file has been used if you use a “one patient rule” the used fees can be placed in the foam insert.
Any unused files not touched, can be left in the EndoButler and autoclaved for the next patient. The files in the foam can be disposed of safely.
