01Reduced Risk of File Breakage
Breakage is to be expected with multiple re-use
the risk of retained instrument fragments and procedural failure is greatly reduced by treating root canal instruments as disposable.
02Improved Cutting Efficiency
Research has shown...
that using endodontic files in multiple cases actually reduced their cutting efficiency.
03No Cross Contamination
No matter how well an instrument is sterilised
research shows that bacteria and tissue remnants remain on the instrument. Additional use of instruments increases the potential for cross-infection to every subsequent patient.
