NEW ORLEANS, La., USA: At AAE17, Dentsply Sirona Endodontics announced the release of its new X-Smart IQ system, a full-treatment dental care solution that supports dental professionals through every step of the endodontic process — from patient education to treatment data. Through its complete digital ecosystem, the system “redefines the endo experience at every stage of the procedure,” according to the company.

The X-Smart IQ iOS app creates customizable treatment plans based on dental professionals’ preferred techniques. In addition, the app allows synchronization of future products and immediate updates, allowing the technology to grow with the dentist’s practice.

“We are excited to provide this unique product to clinicians, who have come to rely on us for the latest technological innovations for the dental care industry,” said Jennifer Beltran, brand development manager for Dentsply Sirona Endodontics, who demonstrated the new technology for Dental Tribune during an in-booth presentation at the meeting.

“The X-Smart IQ is on the forefront of where endodontic treatment is going, and once again Dentsply Sirona is leading the way,” Beltran said.

The system and app allow clinicians to position themselves as leaders in the endodontic field and as early adopters of the most advanced products, she said. In addition, the interactive app will help specialists answer questions for their patients or help address and ease concerns.

“The app really sets this product apart, and that’s one big reason we wanted to include this in our suite of offerings,” Beltran said. “When coupled with the portability and freedom of movement the product demonstrates, it provides our customers a full-treatment solution that supports and guides them through the entire endodontic process.”

The X-Smart IQ system allows practitioners to utilize a Dentsply Sirona file sequence or create their own and save the sequence for future use. They also can utilize the app to capture treatment notes, including tooth number, working length, last file used and obturation method.

The system offers several enhanced features, such as a cordless handpiece; a miniature contra-angle head to allow easy access and superior visibility; the ability to quickly switch from reciprocating to continuous motion; a 360-degree, adjustable, 6:1 contra-angle; a finger-activated motor to offer the same torque and power as a tabletop motor for pre-set files; and Bluetooth pairing along with battery autonomy for 16 treatments. It is also rechargeable during treatment.

The X-Smart IQ iOS app provides Real-Time Torque Monitoring(TM) Technology, as well as instant torque-level indication with visual and audible sound; an auto-reverse function, available in continuous and reciprocating motion; calibration function for more precise torque settings; and graphs showing real-time torque applied to each file over time.
