Nearly 25 years after the introduction of Nickel Titanium Rotary Instrumentation to endodontics, we’ve learned much about the clinical strengths and limitations of these great instruments. With recent improvements in metallurgy, enhanced designs, and innovative rotary file motions, we need to understand how these changes affect clinical instrumentation. Furthermore, we must take advantage of these improvements to create an instrumentation protocol that combines safety with simplicity. Discussion will address both heat-treated and non-heat-treated rotary files. At Real World Endo, we believe these improvements should be employed to their utmost advantage.
