Single-file technique with reciprocating motion

Using a large rotating angle in the cutting direction and a smaller angle in the opposite direction allows the WaveOne file to successfully progress along the canal path, while respecting the root canal anatomy. The advantages of the reciprocating technique are numerous:

  • Makes it possible to shape most root canals using only one single file
  • Decreases total shaping time up to 40% versus a traditional rotary technique in continuous motion*
  • Optimized reciprocating angles reduce the risk of a screwing effect and file breakage*
  • Has a geometry conceived specifically to provide maximum user benefits from the reciprocating movement of the e3® torque control motor

The WaveOne Starter Kit includes all the tools you need for a WaveOne procedure at a significant value. MORE>

Canal Preparation: Single-File Shaping Technique

By Dr. Cliff Ruddle

Excerpt: The mechanical objectives for endodontic canal preparation were brilliantly outlined almost 40 years ago. When properly performed, these mechanical objectives promote the biological objectives for shaping canals, 3-dimensional (3-D) cleaning, and filling root canal systems. During the following decades there has been the emergence of a staggering number of file brands, sequences, and hybrid techniques advocated for shaping canals. However, recent advances for endodontic canal preparation have focused on the concept "less is more." This article will describe a single-file technique for shaping the vast majority of canals, regardless of their length, diameter, or curvature.
