Obtura Spartan adds file to endodontic product line

Obtura Spartan Endodontics has expanded its endodontic product line with the addition of the new One Endo file.

The flexible rotary nickel titanium file, designed by a dentist, has a self-piloting cut flip tip that forms dentinal chips, while an opposing curved area pilots the tip into the canal, according to the company. This design allows clinicians to navigate canals without screwing in or pushing debris in advance of the cutting tip.

The clinician's No. 1 concern while using a rotary file is unexpectedly breaking the instrument inside the root canal, according to John McSpadden, DDS, the file's designer. "The One Endo file is specifically designed to maximize efficiency and minimize stress," he stated in a press release.
