Unveiling the Secret: How Temperature Supercharges Your Dental Files

Temperature Effects on Cyclic Fatigue Resistance of Ni-Ti Alloy Files Explored in New Study Introduction: A recent study conducted by researchers Sirawut Hiran-us and Sarita Morakul has found that temperature significantly impacts the cyclic fatigue resistance of different types of nickel-titanium (Ni-Ti) alloy files. The study, published in the International Dental Journal, investigated conventional (ProTaper Universal [PTU]), Gold-Wire (ProTaper Gold [PTG]), and Fire-Wire (EdgeTaper Platinum [ETP]) Ni-Ti alloy files. Methodology: The researchers tested 20 files from each system in an artificial canal model at both room and body temperatures. During the experiments, they recorded magnified videos using a dental operating microscope integrated camera […]
