TrueTooth #2-001 is a great option for novice clinicians, as the roots and canals have little curvature and the canal system--from pulp horns to apical foramina--is large. Use this TrueTooth to practice apical management as the canals in this TrueTooth have a wide range of apical diameters--from 0.25 mm to .80 mm. With a terminus of 0.80 mm, the palatal canal is an excellent anatomic form for teaching MTA fills of large, open apex canals.
Sold in a pack of 5.

Instructions for Use
TrueTooth 3D printed teeth are the exact reproduction of internal and external anatomy of extracted teeth. TrueTooth teeth are created with special heat-resistant polymer, and proudly 3D printed in the USA. Special handling is necessary to realize the maximum benefits of using TrueTooth.
- Use handpieces at 1,000 RPM with no torque limit.
- Ultrasonics are not ideal, but work best when used wet.
- Negotiate as normal using a lubricant.
- Use handpieces at normal RPM and torque settings.
- Irrigate as normal using NaOCl in a syringe with a side-vent needle. TrueTooth canal tissue will dissolve after 40 minutes of irrigation, similar to vital teeth.
- Continuous Wave or other heated obturation techniques: use heat pluggers at 175 degrees Celsius.
- Carrier-based obturation: obturate as normal.
- Use the shortest exposure time and the lowest KVP. After radiographing, lighten and sharpen image on screen for optimum viewing.
- Use alcohol on outer surface of TrueTooth during procedure for optimum visibility. Alcohol can be used in place of NaOCl.
