Constructed with revolutionary Controlled Memory NiTi Technology, TYPHOON Infinite Flex NiTi Files exhibit virtually no memory. Unlike traditional Ni-Ti files that try to straighten within the canal, these files adapt perfectly to the canal path for precise and conservative removal of tooth structure. Because the lateral forces are balanced throughout the length of the canal, the clinical problems of ledging or removing excess tooth structure are eliminated. Aggressive yet safe, a recent university-based study found these files to be at least 300% more resistant to fatigue stress when compared to traditional Ni-Ti files and have up to 3 times the torsional strength.

One of Dentistry Today's Top 100 Products for 2011, the EndoPoint locator file makes endodontic apex location a much simpler process. The new design is now available in 2 lengths, 20 and 26.5 mm. It's available in 6 sizes: 8, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 mm. It's sold as a kit of 6 (all one size or assortment). Its new shorter length improves access to posterior teeth and short-rooted teeth. Both a shorter canal and up to a 26.5-mm canal can be measured due to the attachment of the locator clip above the file handle. On other files, the clip area plus the stop take up 3 mm of space below the file handle, allowing for only 22-mm canals to be measured accurately. EndoPoint is also equipped with an electrical insulator down the shaft of the file. For product information, call (888) 853-5773 or visit commonsensedental.com.
