Reciprocation

 

ROOT CANAL THERAPY WITH RECIPROCATING FILES

 

As part of Root Canal Therapy the chambers inside your tooth are measured for length and then cleaned and shaped with fine dental files. At Natural Smile eastMED Dental we use a reciprocating file system.

Reciprocating files are made of a nickel-titanium alloy called M-wire that is created by an innovative thermal treatment process.

 

 

THE BENEFITS OF RECIPROCATING FILES COMPARED TO ROTATING FILES:

  • More flexibility and resistance to cyclic fatigue – This means you are at less risk of experience a file break in your tooth.
  • Files are single use which prevents potential cross contamination between and among patients.
