How Does A Dental Apex Locator Work?

Initially, the apex locators operated on the direct current principle. However, it may easily be affected by a conductive fluid such as hemorrhage, exudate, or irrigant in the canal. Currently, the apex locators are impedance-based, using the alternating current of two frequencies through the patient's root canal and oral tissues to determine the location of the apical foramen.

How Do I Check My Working Length with Apex Locator?

The dental apex locator is relatively accurate. The best working length is found by subtracting approximately 0.5 mm from the detected length by the root apex locator. One thing you need to know is the apex locator root canal finder may interfere with the patient's cardiac pacemaker function.
