AIM To evaluate the elemental composition, microstructure and hardness of Ni-Ti endodontic instruments and to assess the relevance of shape memory and superelastic properties. METHODOLOGY Ten brands of Ni-Ti endodontic instrument were evaluated (EndoSequence, Ergoflex K, FlexMaster, Hero 642, Hyflex X-File, K3 Endo, Liberator, NRT, Profile and ProTaper… CONTINUE READING
