Single file technique with reciprocation

Simplicity is the real innovation

Using a large rotating angle in the cutting direction and a smaller angle in the opposite direction allows the WaveOne Reciprocating 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.
