Micro Apical Placement System (MAPS) : a new instrument for retrograde root canal filling
Bernd Ilgenstein, Kurt Jäger, Switzerland
This publication presents the “Surgical” MAP kit which facilitates in a large extent the retrograde obturation with a plastic root canal filling material. The device provides an unrestricted access to the retrograde cavity, allowing thus an accurate obturating technique whilst avoiding the dispersion of the root canal filling material in the surrounding bone. Thanks to the “Surgical-Retro” Micro Apical Placement System, a further gap in the improvement of the quality and, thus, of the success of the treatment by apical resection has been filled.
