Using the GuttaCore Oven
Proper GuttaCore oven operation is imperative to achieve proper flowability of the warm gutta-percha and ultimately a more complete fill. Here, discover three easy steps toward a more efficient root canal treatment.
1. Hold the oven button down for 2 seconds to power on. Push the button to select the correct obturator size (Size 1 for all GuttaCore sizes).
2. After disinfecting the obturator, seat the obturator with the silicone stopper below the arm.
3. Start heating by pushing the oven arm down to place the obturator into the heating chamber. After the first signal “beep,” press again to release the oven arm and remove the obturator.
You’re now ready to deliver warm gutta-percha throughout the canal system.
