The Wave•One™ Endodontic system from DENTSPLY Maillefer is designed to provide simplicity and efficiency to the root canal shaping procedure.
Wave•One™ NiTi files are driven by the Wave•One™ Endodontic motor which shapes root canals using a
Reciprocating motion. This motor is calibrated to precisely work with the design of the Wave•One™ files.
This reciprocating motion means the file continuously changes its rotating direction during the shaping procedure with a large rotating angle in the cutting direction (for high efficiency) and a smaller angle in the reverse direction (to progress along the canal path whilst respecting the root canal anatomy). The optimised angles also assist to reduce the risk of a ‘screwing in’ effect and file breakage.
Requiring only one Wave•One™ Nickel Titanium instrument to shape a canal in most cases (either Small, Primary or Large size) means that no time is wasted changing NiTi instruments during the root canal shaping procedure and inventory requirements can also potentially be reduced.
Wave•One™ files come pre-sterilised and are designed for single patient use which eliminates the need for disinfecting, cleaning, sterilisation and organizing and they are manufactured using the advanced M-Wire™ thermal treatment process, which provides greater flexibility as well as increased strength to assist in reducing the risk of cyclic fatigue and file separation.
