In this article we are getting in depth with SMART ENDO KIT from DEPPELER with each instrument Individually.
During Endodontic Treatments we are always looking for smart choices , Sharp tools so here we are treating this Lower First Molar using the SMART ENDO KIT.
The kit is composed mainly of 5 instruments with 6 Pics ( 1 Attachable Piece )
1- Multiplo ,Front Surface Mirror with silicon pad & ruler.
2 - MisurEndo , Special type of Periodontal Probe.
3 - Explora , Very sharp endodontic Explorer.
4 - PrexoM , Double Sided Plugger with Drop Shape.
5 - Extendo , Multi use Serrated tool.
So lets go in depth with each instrument individually ,
During the dental procedures especially Endodontics it’s really necessary to have a clear image of whats inside the tooth because most of the time we doing indirect work , most important tool is the mirror it has to be reflective & front surface not double image what make MULTIPLO really special is that it contains a ruler and a sealer mixing pad sonot every time you are giving a hand to the assistant to get a tool , it is a 3x1 tool.
Let’s see some uses of MULTIPLO.
Pre Op ,
Pre-Op image of lower first molar with Apical Periodontitis , a failed direct pulp capping from the referring dentist was the cause of failure , in the image we can see a clear view of the access with also the MTA “Red Arrow”

Multiplo is a Silicone Pad , we have 2 uses for the “MULTIPLO” FIG 1 , Sealer mixing area ( Red Arrow ) and Excess Sealer removal ( Green Arrow )
In the Fig 2 we have the 2nd use of the “MULTIPLO” as a Ruler.
Second interesting tool in the kit is “MisueEndo”
It mainly a double sided Periodontal Probe , of of these sides is with normal grades and the other side is with special grades at 4,6,9 & 10 mm , which is very useful in molar access to avoid perforations as the 4mm is still away 4:6mm means its safe 9:10mm means its a danger zone.
It is used mainly for Periodontal Probing & Precise Access Opening.
This PT was complaining about Pain and it is clearly seen it’s a RETREATMENT situation so the “MisurEndo” was useful for the detection of the site of the problem “lingual” by the Periodontal Probing.
Here we are measuring the BL width in addition to the MD width of the tooth to get the Exact point of penetration.
Using the Depth marks on the “MisurEndo” at 6mm we know that we are inside the access “FIG 3” , the result is a precise access opening “FIG 4”
Third instrument “EXPLORA” ;
EXPLORA is a sharp Endodontic Explorer with many uses like :
- Canal Locating
- Disassembling of materials in canal Space
- Separated Instruments Exploration during Retrival.
