Q. Which of your CPR ultrasonic tips do you recommend for broken instrument removal?
A. Just to clarify - the ultrasonic instruments I designed and have extensively lectured and written about or shown in my videos were CPR
. However, the high quality source who manufactured my ultrasonic instruments elected to have Dentsply Tulsa Dental manufacture/distribute the instruments and they are now
being sold under the "ProUltra" name. CPR stood for C
liff & P
uddle, but Spartan trademarked my CPR name under their company name and not mine. Currently, Spartan continues to sell "CPR" ultrasonic instruments; however, I cannot confirm the quality, performance or durability of their instruments. The ultrasonic instruments I recommend for broken instrument removal are the ProUltra ENDO Tips #3, 4 or 5. More information on these tips is posted to the Inventions
page of this site. In addition, I also refer you to my Ruddle on Retreatment
DVD "Removal of Posts and Broken Instruments".
