Reciprocation by VDW

In reciprocation, the instrument is driven first in a cutting direction and then reverses to release the instrument. One complete rotation of 360° is completed in several reciprocating movements. The angle in the cutting direction is greater than the angle in the reverse direction, so that the instrument continously progresses towards the apex. The angles…

Reciprocating History

Canal curvature has always introduced complexity into canal preparation. The “balanced forceconcept”, i.e. small clockwise and counter-clockwise movements, was developed over a periodof twelve years, and proposed in 1985 by Roane as a means of overcoming the curvature influence. Using the balanced force technique, it is possible to shape curved canals with larger diameter hand…

Prepare your access cavity with a straight-line accessto the root canal orifice(s).

1. Estimate the working length from a pre-operative radiograph.2. Place irrigant in the access cavity.3. Introduce the instrument into the access cavity. Press the motor foot pedal when orifice is reached. 4. Prepare the coronal third of the canal by moving the instrument in a slow in-and-out pecking motion. The amplitude of the in-and-out movements…

RECIPROC blue instruments

Constantly striving for innovation, VDW developed a heat treatment solution to bring more flexibility to NiTi. Five years after launching RECIPROC®, VDW presented RECIPROC® blue in 2016 – an universal and flexible instrument for the majority of cases. RECIPROC blue instruments RECIPROC blue instruments are produced with Nickel-Titanium (NiTi) that goes through an innovative heat…

RECIPROC instruments

2011 was a milestone in VDW history, marking a paradigm shift in endodontics. With RECIPROC®, VDW launched a reciprocating one-file shaping system in combination with a new motion which would soon become a pillar in root canal treatment. The instrument demonstrates its particular efficiency when used for retreatments. The Reciproc family (RECIPROC and RECIPROC blue)…

RECIPROC INSTRUMENTS

RECIPROC® instruments use the latest technologies in endodontics. They have been specially designed to work in the oscillating movement mode (mutually opposite rotation of the file to the left and right). Due to these movements, the risk of jamming or breaking the file in the canal is minimized. The RECIPROC® system offers three instrument sizes…

Nickel Titanium vs M-Wire vs Gold Wire: which guarantees the best root canal shaping?

Simona Chirico In these years, different kind of rotary instruments were created for root canal shaping. The aim of using these instruments was to create a correct tapered shaped canal in order to respect the original canal anatomy and avoid canal transportation, ledge formation and perforations. Rotary instruments can be of different wire: Nichel Titanium,…
