Workshop Title:

Single file: Is it a reality or just hype


Friday 9th November 2018

About the workshop:

Rotary NiTi instruments have invaded our daily dental practice. Definitely they had a great role in enhancement of the performance of general practitioners. However, general practitioners were complaining from the so many files in the early systems, which were used during shaping the root canal system. This motivated manufacturers to seek systems with less number of files. The dream of preparing the canals with only one file was always there. With the recent introduction of such proposed idea and files, Did we really reach this dream? Knowing that most shaping systems can not touch more than 60-65% of root canal walls, what about single files? What about the stresses induced upon these file during root canal preparation? What are the possible strategies to minimize stresses upon these files? Reciprocation versus continuous rotation, does it make a difference? Martensitic versus austenitic alloys, secrets behind the doors Reciproc blue rotary file, is it a great leap or just an ordinary change? This workshop will shed a light on all these questions and try to answer them.
