The ir- rigation select key is located next door to the power level key. This will allow you to choose between the irrigation modes (tap water or bottles). It seems quite beneficial for the user to be able to work inde- pendently from tap water supply for several reasons: • The water tube will quickly and easily become filled with bioflim. • The two bottles allow different irrigants to be used simultane- ously. The auto cleaning procedure, which can be initiated via the touchpad, can ensure biofilm colonisation risk is reduced. The manufacturer recom- mends that the unit should be stored with the dust covers in place once the bottles are re- moved from the unit. Testing the unit The unit has to be specially tested for the use in endodon- tics. Using the V-Tip sytem as well as the restorative tips allows for coronal access shaping. One could use diamond-coated en- dodontic tips at varying lengths to complement root-canal en- largement. The removal of for- eign bodies is enhanced with the more rigid tips, while fractured instruments are removed with the flexible ones. Holder tips for irrigant-energising files are offered in 95 or 120-degree an- gulation, while files are offered in sizes ISO 15 to ISO 35. The manufacturer also offers a vari- ety of retrograde tips for surgical endodontics. To conclude, either using the device connected to the water line or independently, the self- cleaning programme will ensure that optional biofilm formation can be avoided. The Varios 970 can be used in Endodontics for coronal access shaping, for removal of posts, fractured instruments, energis- ing irrigants in the canal, and even condensation of the obtura- tion. Having two independently bottled solutions, this allows for direct irrigation and energising of the last one-speeding up the chemical disinfection process. The result The ultrasonic unit is extremely powerful and satisfies any re- quirements. The different power settings and the extremely wide variety of offered tips make the Varios 970 suitable not only for endodontics, but also for peri- odontology as well as restorative. We have tried the use of other par- ty manufactured tips and the de- vice worked to our satisfaction.
