WARNING:

  • The scale indication on the Propex Pixi® screen does not represent a distinct length or distance in mm or other linear units. It simply indicates the file progression towards the apex;
  • The following patient-related factors may prevent accurate readings:
  • Blocked root canals;
  • Teeth with large apices;
  • Root fracture or perforation;
  • Metal crowns or bridges, if they come into contact with the file or the lip clip.
  • Inaccurate or incorrect readings due to the environment are likely to  occur in the following cases:
  • Presence of portable or movable radio frequency transmitters in the surroundings;
  • Film viewers or other Illumination devices that use an inverter may cause abnormal operation of the apex locator. Such devices should be turned off during use of the Propex Pixi®;
  • Electromagnetic interference could cause improper operation of the device. In such cases, the device behavior may become abnormal or random. Usage of any devices emitting electromagnetic radiation, such as cellular phones, remote controls, transceivers, etc., should be prohibited in the vicinity of Propex Pixi®.

GENERAL SAFETY WARNING:

  • In order to prevent infectious agent transfer, it is highly recommended to use a rubber dam system during the endodontic procedure.
  • Make sure that the lip clip, hook or fork does not come into contact with an electric power source such as an electrical socket. This could result in a severe electrical shock.
  • Do not use Propex Pixi® in the presence of flammable substances.
