Favorite Komet USA Product

Dr. Olmsted enjoys being able to utilize and share the cutting edge technology of new Komet rotary and reciprocation instrumentation and the new obturation techniques. "Komet USA representatives are most knowledgeable and attentive to clinical support of dentists, endodontists, and educators to help all of us provide excellent and efficient care for our patients."

Dr. Olmsted's favorite product is the new Procodile file because it is one of the most flexible, safe, and efficient endodontic instruments. The new design of variably-tapered nickel titanium core with double-S cross-section and a larger chip space, all contribute to these three qualities. The Procodile files are Dr. Olmsted’s favorite Komet USA product. 
The future of dentistry, and of endodontics, is expected to be more innovative driven with multiple choices of new technology. Artificial intelligence for collaboration to help with diagnosis and differentiation of oral facial pain; new anesthetic and sedation techniques; three-dimensional guiding of access and location of canals; cutting edge rotary and reciprocation Procodile instruments; negative apical pressure irrigation of canals; gutta percha and improved bio-ceramic sealer for better obturation; continual improvements with coronal restorations for endodontic treated teeth; all contribute to the excellent and compassionate care for our patients. The future of the profession dentistry is extremely bright.
