Propex IQ

Propex IQ Apex Locator

Efficiency through Connectivity

The Propex IQ can be easily connected to the X-Smart IQ Handpiece, and both can be connected to the Endo IQ App. This allows you to simultaneously monitor file progression and shape the canal, while also visualizing file progression using the app.

Reliable and Easy to Use

Propex IQ guarantees reliable monitoring of file progression in both combined and standalone mode. It also works with various irrigation solutions. The device doesn't require any calibration or adjustments, making it extremely user friendly.

Endurance that Lasts

It can run for up to 5.5 hours non-stop on a single charge.

Ultra Light and Portable

Small in size but big in performance. Weighing only 80 grams, it is smaller than the Propex Pixi and ultra portable.

Future Proof

The Propex IQ is equipped to be as up to date as possible for years to come. You can upgrade the device's firmware via an update on the Endo IQ app.

Motor & contra angle:

  • Bluetooth memory function.  If the Bluetooth connection is lost, the X-Smart IQ motor can still function under the last motor settings used.
  • Stand-alone function.  Using the X-Smart IQ application, the motor can be set to run solely with reciprocating or continuous settings without the iPad mini to control it.
  • Reciprocating and rotary motions
  • Calibration function (CAL) for more precise torque setting
  • Sensitive touch START/STOP button
  • Auto-reverse rotation at preset torque limit (in both motions)
  • Lithium-ion battery:
    • Autonomy for 16 treatments*
    • Full charge in 6 hours
    • Automatic sleep mode and auto-power off
    • Motor handpiece is rechargeable during treatment
  • Torque range: 0.5Ncm - 5Ncm (depending on maximum speed)
  • Speed range: 250rpm - 850rpm
  • Contra Angle autoclavable at 134 degrees C 
  • Universal charger 9 voltage 100-240, 50Htz/60Htz)

*A treatment is defined as 2 canals with 4 files per canal used for 30 seconds each.

X-Smart IQ application:

  • Includes file library with preset programs for WaveOne Gold, ProTaper Gold, ProTaper Universal, ProTaper Universal Retreatment, ProTaper Next, and others
  • Customizable file library and compatible with other shaping systems
  • Can control 2 handpieces for 4-hand technique
  • Possibility to set up multiple users
  • Compatible with iOS 9+

iPad mini Protective Case:

  • Dimensions:
    • Landscape 209 x 140 x 86 mm
    • Portrait 144 x 125 x 196 mm
  • Optimal results with nitrile gloves (non-latex preferred)
  • Compatible with iPad mini 1,2,3 and 4
  • Water-resistant (IP 30)


Maximum speed is 850 rpm and maximum torque is 5 Ncm.

The syncing of the handpiece and the app is required during initial set up. At that time, you can choose to set the motor in stand-alone mode and select a speed and torque from the menu.

The motor handpiece can be used without the iPad mini™ and the application. This mode is called Stand-alone. However, the motor handpiece must be initially activated with the application to be used in Stand-alone mode. In Stand-alone mode, a torque and speed must be selected.

If Bluetooth connection is lost, the motor can still function under the last motor setting used.

The handpiece cannot be turned off as there is no off button. The motor auto-powers off for energy savings. In light sleep mode (35 seconds of inactivity), the handpiece awakens when picked up. In deep sleep mode (30 minutes of inactivity), all LEDs are off. You must press the multifunction button to awaken the handpiece.

The battery lasts without charging it for 16 treatments (a treatment is defined as 2 canals with 4 files per canal used for 30 seconds each). The battery can be recharged during treatment. The battery must be fully charged prior to first use. Charging time is a maximum of 6 hours.

• Charge the battery no more than once a day.

• Always fully charge the battery, i.e. until the battery turns green.

• If the battery on the motor handpiece lights up red, charge the battery. You can continue treatment while it is charging.

• Charge the battery as soon as the battery turns red, at the latest when the battery starts blinking red. Do not begin treatment if battery indicator is blinking red.

Continuous operation with the charger connected shortens the lifetime of the battery. Dentsply Sirona Endodontics recommends working without the charging cable connected.

The torque doesn’t automatically change unless the auto-reverse is triggered which reverses the movement of the file. The torque limits are different for different files. The red color band on the RTTM indicates that you are close to maximum torque.

Yes, prior to every treatment.

Please refer to the DFU.

Please make sure the doctor uses the right cleaning and disinfection procedure as recommended in the DFU.

No, but you can clean it with your current disinfectant like you currently do with your motor.

Questions related to the Endo IQ App

The iPad mini is the optimal screen size given the tight space. As Apple iOS® is a closed system, it is more appropriate than Android systems for a medical device.

The app is only validated for iPad mini 1, 2, 3, and 4. We couldn’t stop doctors from using a full sized iPad, but the app won’t appear correctly (fonts, sizes, etc.). The app would not work on an iPhone at all. By not using an iPad mini, doctors couldn’t use the protective case.


Not at the moment. As Apple iOS® is a closed system it is more appropriate than Android systems for a medical device.

Not at the moment. An iPhone 6 or 7 is much more expensive than an iPad mini™ and most doctors don’t want to use their personal devices as their work equipment.

Not at the moment. We talked to many doctors during the development of X-Smart IQ and all of them agreed that the iPad mini is the optimal screen size given the limited space available in an operatory.

It is an investment. There are future product integrations in the works. Also, with the Endo IQ app, there are new hardware and new app functionalities to come.

There is no limit.

• User information

• Patient identification

• Treatments with file used and RTTM

• Custom file

• Custom file sequences

• Last 10 min of RTTM for each file

There are some recommendations in the DFU: “User must take appropriate measures to protect any data associated with a patient such as activating the device master password, the encryption of the parameters for backup on iTunes® and avoiding using the iPad mini outside the medical environment.” In addition, only the patient ID is indicated in the Treatment Report pdf.


You can email out the treatment report as a pdf. This pdf document can then be uploaded to any Patient Management software.
