Canal Preparation

ProTaper Universal

This show will focus on ProTaper Universal. The assumption of using any mechanical system is you need to have a secured canal, or what that really means is a canal that has a smooth, reproducible glide path. We will look at how the design of endodontic instruments dictate safety, efficiency and simplicity.  You will see how the ProTaper progressively tapered design, utilized in continuous rotation, can safely and efficiently create a deep shape of 8-10% and generally with only 2, 3 or 4 files.  Finally, this segment features clinical footage showing how to utilize the ProTaper rotary system to successfully shape the canals within a mandibular molar.
