The First Obturator with a Crosslinked Gutta-Percha Core.

Since its introduction to dentistry in 1847, gutta-percha has been more universally trusted than any other obturation material. But until now, warm gutta-percha’s flowing characteristic made it unsuitable for use as an obturator core because it melted when heated.

DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties changed what’s possible by introducing crosslinking technology to gutta-percha. A well-established scientific process, crosslinking connects the polymer chains and transforms the gutta-percha, keeping it from melting, making it subtly stronger, while keeping its best features.

  • Same gutta-percha transformed with subtle, flexible strength
  • Retains shape when heated
  • Removes easily
  • Centrally compacts the surrounding warm flowable gutta-percha 3-dimensionally

Many obturation techniques use lateral or vertical compaction of gutta-percha. However, the hydraulic force from these techniques generally moves gutta-percha in one or two unequal directions (laterally or apically). GuttaCore Crosslinked Gutta-Percha Core Obturators centrally compact the gutta-percha with a hydraulic force that sends it flowing equally in three dimensions -- throughout the entire canal system
