WaveOneS brings simplicity to endodontics WaveOne®, from Dentsply Maillefer, sets new standards in endodontics, by bringing simplicity to tbe root canal shaping procedure, using only one NiTi instrument per root canal in most cases.The X-5MART™ plus and WaveOne® motors work in a reciprocating mode. A large rotating angle in tbe cutting direction provides bigb efficiency, whereas a smaller angle in the reverse direction allows the WaveOne® file to safely progress along the canal path, whilst reducing the risk of a screwing effect and file breakage. Single file technique The reciprocating technique makes it possible to shape most root canals using only one single WaveOne® Nickel-Titanium file. The global shaping time is thus decreased by up to 40% versus a traditional continuous rotary technique. The WaveOne® file geometry was conceived specifically to benefit from the reciprocating movement of the X-SMART"* plus and WaveOne® motors. The Dentsply M-Wire® NiTi provides flexibility and resistance to cyclic fatigue. The global performance of WaveOne® is the result of an extensive collaboration between Dentsply and some of the most prominent endodontists in the world.
