ProTaper Universal Rotary Files
With their patented, progressive taper design and system-based simplicity, ProTaper Universal treatment files are synonymous with exceptional performance. ProTaper Universal files promote the efficiency, flexibility and precision you want for successful procedures.
In general, as few as three ProTaper Universal files are needed to achieve a fully tapered canal exhibiting a uniform shape. And now, you can achieve these shapes with more precision and safety.
Shaping files pre-enlarge and optimally shape the coronal 2/3 of the canal. The multiple tapers ensure flexibility and cut dentin in specific canal zones. A brushing action creates lateral space and allows stronger and more efficient blades to passively move deeper into the canal.
Finishing files finish the apical 1/3. They produce the final deep shape in the canal and the correct apical fit for the matching ProTaper Universal obturators or master cones. Each finishing file features a decreasing rate of taper that enhances flexibility, reduces over-preparing the coronal 2/3 of the canal and reduces the potential for taper lock.
PRECAUTION: To promote the mechanical preparation objectives, take any ProTaper Universal rotary finishing instrument to length only one time and for no more than one second.
