Dental Tribune U.S. Edition | February 2013 A11INDUSTRY NEWS Endodontic rotary file system refined DENTSPLY Tulsa Den- tal Specialties has in- troduced its newest innovation and an ex- pansion of its world re- nowned endodontic file system. PROTAPER NEXT is the same variable taper design found in the original ProTaper that clinicians have turned to for more than a de- cade, but refined to im- prove performance. PROTAPER NEXT fea- tures: patented M-Wire® NiTi alloy for increased flexibility and resistance to cyclic fatigue; rectan- gular cross-section for greater strength; and a unique asymmetric ro- tary (AR) motion. PROTAPER NEXT uses the same trusted rotary action as the original Pro- Taper. What’s different is how the file moves down the canal. The off-center rectangular cross-sec- tion of PROTAPER NEXT differs from the center of mass. Only two points of the cross-section touch the canal wall at a time, reducing the tor- sional stress on the file. The result is a fully ta- pered and predictable shape achieved with greater procedural effi- ciency. The single-use and pre-sterilized PROTAPER NEXT files also feature shorter handles (11 mm) and are available in 21-, 25- and 31-mm lengths. Four sizes of color-coded and precision-matched absorbent points, gutta- percha points and obtu- rators fit all PROTAPER NEXT prepared canals. To- gether they represent the PROTAPER NEXT system- based approach to root canal therapy.
