Types of Rotary Endodontic Instruments

Are you victim of marketing, Struggling/aspiring to Do Good/great Endo-CLICK HERE

Even untreated case Heals -see pic below, tooth with vital pulp in apical area also will recover more easily, but as a professional you are resonsible to give all patients best chance to HEAL- by doing a complete cleaning..with focus in apical area

pic B after 31 months, crown is breaking down, apical is healing SEE DETAILS

There are over 65 Systems today in market, how they differ, which one will help you get better success ? Here is a list of almost all systems

WHY Protaper is dangerous -they strip healthy dentine and tend to cause more fracture ...CLICK HERE+++++ LINK 2

Most important quality of your Endodontic instruement is flexibility, Test your instrument to determine its stiffness, greater the rigidity of instrument, more chance of breakage and failure- see video below

Now with the advent of CBCT many things are becoming clear. Inefficiency and problems of tapered instruments were not being detected in 2 D radiographs. As you can see in the pic, we have super imposed a popular tapered instrument on a typical root canal. And you can see how it will transport the canal/cause strip perforation because of its rigidity. Please try and test and flexibility of your tapered instrument and compare it to the natural shape of the canal. Tapered system do not properly clean apical area as was found in this CBCT study CLICK HERE

Tapered systems do have value and should be used with caution with proper understanding of root anatomy, READ THIS PAPER

But Tapered systems do not clean the apex, Coronal and Middle third YES, apical Third NO, (SEM analysis of the root canals showed no differences between groups. Clean dentine surfaces were seen in the coronal and middle thirds, but smear layer and debris remained in the apical third of the root canal with both systems.) Read this paper (neither system could give clean dentine surfaces free from smear layer and debris in the apical third) It is last line in Results para
