Description

The internal anatomy of human teeth consists of a highly complicated network of multi-planar curved, anastomotic canals, as seen in studies of root canal anatomy. Navigating efficiently, safely and predictably has been a matter of extensive effort and research over the years. The ultimate objective had always been the safe and predictable three dimensional chemo-mechanical debridement and obturation of the root canal system. However thorough instrumentation and enlargement of the apical region to achieve root canal disinfection has long been considered to be a crucial factor in the cleaning and shaping process. Greater apical preparations have the potential to more efficiently remove the debris and allow proper irrigation to the apical part of the canals. On the other hand, instrumentation with conventional rotary or reciprocating NiTi files to larger apical diameters, has the potential to generate cracks on the apical surface and induce dentinal damage and transportation in curved canals. Recently, a novel NiTi alloy with flexible properties called CM wire (Controlled memory wire) was introduced in the market. CM rotary files are extremely flexible and fatigue resistant, but without the shape memory of conventional NiTi files. The lack of shape memory effect and the superior flexibility of controlled memory files provide them the ability to follow the anatomy, reducing the risk of dentinal damage, even when larger apical preparations are required. This course is designed to thoroughly discuss the potential of delivering larger apical preparations in extremely curved or double curved canal systems efficiently, safely and predictably by taking advantage of the controlled memory alloy properties. Never fear curved canals and file breakage again!
