Prepometer

Prepometer is an electronic measuring device that, like electronic endodontic measuring devices, detects the length of dentine tubuli. As the largest danger to damage the pulp is mediated over open dentine tubuli, the use of Prepometer primarily gives you the information on the biological effect of the dentine barrier over the pulp, more than just indicating the real thickness of dentine. Colored light diodes inform within seconds about the thickness of the dentine when surfing over the prepared tooth. GREEN indicates a thickness, which would allow further preparation. YELLOW will indicate that preparation should stop here. The indication allows fine adjustment. It permits measuring by turning yellow to orange the closer you get to the pulp. The use of Prepometer practically minimizes the risk of demaging the pulp.
