Buchanan Hand Pluggers Buchanan Hand PluggersFeaturing both a tapered nickel-titanium end and a stainless steel end, Buchanan Hand Pluggers can be used in any common obturation technique, including warm and cold condensation. The pluggers are also ideal for backfilling canals. Use the NiTi end for finishing off condensation procedures in even the most radically curved canals. Either end may condense and control the movement of gutta percha under pressure. In addition, the Buchanan Hand Pluggers are fabricated of the highest grade materials for excellent durability and sterilization.
