What we think:

What do you think of the Elements Connect motor and Connect apex locator from Kerr, Simon?

“I have really enjoyed using the Elements Connect motor and Connect apex locator in my clinical practice. I have found the apex locator to be very accurate when used separately and when used connected to the motor. The flashing light on the file holder makes using the apex locator very easy and this is something I haven’t come across on any other device.

The motor is noticeably quieter than what I have been used to and the fact that it is cordless means that it feels very comfortable and lightweight in use. Having two batteries is also a good feature so that it can be used without interruption for charging. Owners of this device will love the design of the connections at the ends of the cable which have an obvious to hold when they are being disconnected, which should enhance cable lifespan.

This apex locator and motor work brilliantly separately but I especially liked using them together as I found the auto reverse at working length feature worked really well, helping to prevent working length errors and damage of the apical constriction. My cone fit radiographs looked great first time as a result. Overall, these are premium products that work fantastically well together or separately.”
