World’s Leading Endodontic Rotary File System Refined: Introducing ProTaper NEXT
Tulsa, Okla., DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties introduced its newest innovation and an expansion of the world’s leading endodontic file system. PROTAPER NEXT is the same variable taper design found in the original ProTaper that clinicians have turned to for more than a decade, but refined to improve performance.
PROTAPER NEXT features the patented M-Wire® NiTi alloy for increased flexibility and resistance to cyclic fatigue, a rectangular cross-section for greater strength and a unique Asymmetric Rotary (AR) Motion. PROTAPER NEXT uses the same trusted rotary action as the original ProTaper. What’s different is how the file moves down the canal.
The off-center rectangular cross section of PROTAPER NEXT differs from the center of mass. Only two points of the cross section touch the canal wall at a time, reducing the torsional stress on the file. The result is a fully-tapered and predictable shape achieved with greater procedural efficiency.
The single-use and pre-sterilized PROTAPER NEXT files also feature shorter handles (11 mm) and are available in 21, 25 and 31 mm lengths.
Four sizes of color coded and precision-matched absorbent points, gutta-percha points and obturators fit all PROTAPER NEXT prepared canals. It’s the PROTAPER NEXT system-based approach to root canal therapy.
