Over 125 years ago, Kerr revolutionized endodontics with the introduction of the K-File stainless steel handfile. Today, KaVo Kerr is proud to introduce the latest innovation in endodontics with Traverse: a rotary glide path file. Traverse simplifies the process of establishing the glide path in root canal treatment. Its advanced technology helps enhance the procedural technique by creating a more tapered glide path that reduces the workload of the shaping files. In addition, Traverse reduces procedure time and manual labor when compared to traditional hand filing, resulting in improved efficiency.
Traverse is a nickel titanium file and is engineered with a triangular cross-section for better cutting efficiency, and Variable Heat Treatment technology for greater flexibility and strength. It also provides a maximum flute diameter of 1mm, and a non-cutting tip to reduce the risk of ledging or perforating the canal. Traverse files are pre-sterilized and offered in individual blister packs, with four files per pack. The Traverse system features a .25/.08 17mm orifice opener and glide path files of .13/.06 and .18/.06 in lengths of 21mm, 25mm and 31mm. With thoughtful features and design, the new Traverse rotary glide path file offers innovation, efficiency and improved Glide Path creation.
