Featuring both a tapered nickel-titanium end and a stainless steel end, Buchanan Hand Pluggers can be used in any common obturation technique, including warm and cold condensation. Buchanan pluggers are also ideal for backfilling canals. While either end may condense and control the movement of gutta percha under pressure, use the NiTi end for finishing off condensation procedures in even the most radically curved canals. These NiTi/stainless steel endo pluggers are fabricated of the highest grade materials for excellent durability and sterilization.
Available individually or in a pre-packaged kit of five, The Buchanan System B Pluggers have revolutionized warm gutta percha techniques. These high-quality pluggers have a shape that closely matches the final root canal preparation. This maximizes condensation forces on the softened gutta percha without placing undue stress on the root canal system. Because the System B Heat Source provides an exact temperature throughout the procedure, the Buchanan Pluggers do not over-soften the gutta percha and the warm mass fills lateral canals as easy as it seals apically. When you disengage the heat, the pluggers cool almost instantly and separate easily from the condensed gutta percha.
