Endodontic files and reamers, whether handheld or rotary-powered, are tiny instruments that have big impacts on performing root canal treatments.
When you choose the best surgical instruments to clean and shape the root canal, successfully completing debridement of the canal and providing a shape that allows for optimal obturation, the clinician has confidence that the patient is getting the best root canal treatment and, therefore, the best chance to extend the life of the tooth.
More general practitioners today are involved in endodontics thanks in large part to improved techniques and enhanced files. This month, we provide a look at some of the many products available to assist GPs and specialists in delivering root canal treatment. These files are designed to help clinicians combat pain, and they are changing the way people feel about the once-dreaded procedure.
Features Adaptive Motion Technology, which uses a feedback algorithm to change the motion of the file based on the applied load
As stress increases or decreases, the motor responds accordingly, giving you the benefits of both rotary and reciprocation at exactly the right moment
TF Adaptive files are twisted, rather than ground, into their shape
Due to their design, these files are said to be up to 58% more resistant to fracture than other leading files
Included in a minimally invasive 2 file shaping system that provides the initial shaping of the canal
The ESX helps determine what the appropriate finishing file should be based on the engagement to obtain working length
The ESX file features an alternating contact point (ACP™) design, which allows the file to efficiently clean 3 dimensionally as the sharp cutting edges engage with the canal walls at opposing intervals
Operates on a low torque setting and higher speed, reducing stress on the root and file
Features Booter Tip™ with 6 cutting edges, allowing for fewer instruments and larger diameter increases
