Thermafil has been my exclusive obturation technique since 1994, and it satisfies all the criteria that are important to me as a practicing endodontist. In a properly shaped canal its simplicity of use and flow characteristics are unparalleled by any other thermoplastisized method. There is abundant research to support operator confidence and incorporation into a specialty practice, and its application is universal regardless of the rotary instrumentation employed to create the canal shape and space. If there was a superior material available, I would owe it to my patients to use it."
I have found Thermafil to be a great aid in many cases where ‘traditional’ filling techniques have been difficult to use. Thermafil’s ability to carry warm gutta percha to the apex of the tooth in a ‘properly shaped canal’ has performed beyond my expectations.Now that I use Thermafil regularly, I have noticed many lateral canals that I had not been seeing using other obturation methods.”
