Thermique thermal condenser includes a proportional feedback system to maintain precise temperature within the canal for predictable gutta-percha flow with minimal generation of smoke and flames. The unit features a 360° finger control to allow activation from any position. Its tip heats up only after placement within the canal and reaches the preselected temperature within 3 seconds. When the operator releases the finger activation, the tip instantly cools off. A built-in rechargeable battery allows a full day's use on a single charge. The unit has a warning light that lets the operator know when the battery's getting low. If the procedure continues, the device automatically shuts off in order to maintain the preselected temperature. For patient and operator safety, a built-in circuit will also deactivate the unit if there's an internal malfunction. The Thermique comes with a 90-day, risk-free trial and 5-year warranty.
