Is scientific hype replacing scientific evidence?
Many endodontists have devoted a great amount ofvaluable time to endodontic instrumentation research using scientificevidence in an attempt to convey useful information for the advancementof endodontics. Scientific evidence relies on comprehensive data and itis crucial for researchers to ensure...  Read More
Join Us for a Complimentary Seminar
The Efficient and Productive Endodontic Practice: Dr. JohnT.McSpaddenIf you save a penny and double it every day, it only takes 27 days to become a millionaire. We are familiar with the power of compound returns but sometimes the power of accumulative returns escapes us, particularly in our...  Read More
Choosing the correct instrumentation technique for any given clinical situation is a function of both the canal anatomy and the behavioral characteristics of the files being used. As clinicians, we are concerned about an instrument’s ability to shape the canal in as an ideal fashion as...  Read More
INSTRUMENT DESIGN & TECHNIQUE – A Match Made in Heaven by Dr. Barry H. Korzen
It has been well documented that the use of nickel titanium rotary instrumentation has surpassed the use of stainless steel hand files both in the numbers of practitioners using this technique and the percentage of time they use rotary vs. hand files.   Read More
Establishing a proper Glide Path to ensure an unimpeded progressionof all instruments from the coronal orifice to the apical constrictionis one of the most important steps, on the way to endodontic treatmentsuccess.With some cases, once proper access has been created, all that isnecessary is to...  Read More

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then what's that worth?
Most of the time x-rays of tortuous canals are used to demonstrate thecapabilities of a file. This begs the question: exactly how muchinformation do we get from an x-ray. Dr. HB Johnson, one of the pioneersof endodontics and the man who coined the term endodontics, is theperson that performed the...  Read More
On Communication and Collaboration for Advancing Endodontic File Design
While the overwhelming majority of comments we receive regarding ourresearch and innovations is very positive and complementary, publishingour and claiming unbiased objectivity opens us up to criticism andscrutiny. We expect and welcome such skepticism as it inspiresdiscussion and informs further...  Read More
Stacking the Deck : A response to questions about our selection of testing protocols
Recently, we received feedback regarding our methodology for creating protocols for evaluating endo file performance on our ,a computer controlled clinical simulator. As always, we encourage yourparticipation in our discussions and we felt others might benefit fromincluding these comments in our...  Read More
Sample Selection: How we select files for evaluation on the Endo File Evaluator
In any scientific study that intends to make inferences about anentire production of endodontic files its primary objective, the samplesize is a very important feature for having sufficient statisticalpower. In estimating unknown parameters larger sample sizes generallyresults in greater...  Read More
The Emperor’s Clothes; Making the Invisible Visible
The ability to provide unparalleled critical information about teethand their surrounding tissues has been transformed with the developmentof 3-D imaging systems such as Cone Beam Computed Tomography. Ourknowledge is no longer limited to conventional intra-oral radiographsthat represent a...  Read More
NiTi Endo 101: understanding terminology of nickel titanium endodontic files
Image contributed by Matthew Brock DDS - Southeastern EndodonticsThesuccess of using instruments while preventing failure depends on howthe material, design and technique relate to the forces exerted on theinstruments. To how the file reacts to applied forces, terms have been defined...  Read More
Why different endo files have a different "feel"
The One Endo file's cutting edge extends through its tip allowing it to cut very efficiently. This efficiency, however, may be perceived as having an "aggressive feel".Endodontic files basically have three functions: forming a dentinalchip, dislodging the chip, and transporting...  Read More
Does the quality of manufacturing make much difference for endo files?
SEM courtesy Nova Southeastern University College of Dental MedicineBeforedifferent types of files are studied, it should be stressed that thequality of manufacturing is the most basic consideration for determiningthe success or failure of endodontic files independent of...  Read More
Steps of Endodontic Instrumentation Technique
Many endodontists have spent a great deal of time deciding on thefile sequence that serves them best and would prefer not to have tolearn a new technique. For those, we would recommend no technique changesince the One Endo file was designed to give better results with anytechnique simply by using...  Read More
