DentaPort OTR Module

DentaPort OTR Module The soft revolution in dentistry

I already have an apex Locator from a different manufacturer. Can I connect the OTR module to it?

No. You would have to order a Root ZX II OTR Module.

I don’t like having so many cables from all the different ancillary devices in my practice. Can I somehow integrate DentaPort OTR Module in my treatment unit?

But please remember that DentaPort OTR Module combines an apex locator, endo motor and curing light in one device. Moreover, you don’t need an additional foot control for it and the device is mains independent.

I have a DentaPort OTR Module and find the Auto Start/Stop and Auto Apical Reverse to be comfortable functions. Still, there are situations when I would prefer controlling the motor manually.

The DentaPort OTR Module motor can be controlled manually by a shortcut button combination. A foot control would be even more comfortable.

Which parts of the DentaPort OTR Module can I sterilize in the autoclave?
  • Only the contra angle
  • File clamps
  • Mucosal electrodes
Which parts of the DentaPort OTR Module can be put in the thermo disinfector?
  • File clamps
  • Mucosal electrodes
How long does the battery last and what do I do if the battery is defective?

When used frequently, an intact battery should have enough capacity for at least one up to several working days. It takes about 60 minutes to recharge completely. Should the battery’s capacity have dropped significantly, it can be replaced without any tools.

I use many different files. I would like to save the speed and maximum permissible torque values for each file respectively in the device.

Root ZX II OTR Module has 3 memory spaces. This is perfectly sufficient for several reasons: The torque values stated by the manufacturers of files usually are maximum values that apply for new files. Yet, the file already is „stressed“ after just a few rotations in the root canal and, consequently, worn up to a certain degree. Accordingly, the maximum applicable torque value is that much lower. This questions the relevance of stipulating strict values.
If you have more memory spaces, you will have to make more adjustments on the device during the treatment (stress, hygiene). OTR stays far below any maximum values and, in addition, it only requires a maximum of 3 files. The torque values primarily depend on the method and not so much on the files.

How many memory spaces does DentaPort OTR Module have?

DentaPort OTR Module has 3 memory spaces.

I could easily detect wear on the external file electrode. Now the file electrode is not visible anymore. How can I see whether the electrode is worn?

The built-in electrode also is subject to wear and should be replaced from time to time. In order to ensure that the electrode is always in perfect working order, it should be replaced after about 100 operating hours (rotation time). A countdown timer is integrated in Root ZX II OTR Module and emits an acoustic signal when it’s time to replace the electrode

Where can I buy DentaPort OTR Module?

Please contact a specialized dental retailer.

The new DentaPort OTR Module has a function for calibrating the lead circuit for the torque value. Why wasn’t this provided in the old model?

The torque values that can be set are many times lower for OTR than those needed for the conventional Auto Torque Reverse. Consequently, any friction losses of the gear mechanism in the contra angle or motor hardly matter in connection with Auto Torque Reverse, but are significant with OTR.

Torque values for the different methods

Reciproc: approx. 400 gcm
Auto Torque Reverse: approx. 100 gcm
OTR: approx. 20-40 gcm
