AIM To improve the dissolution process of NiTi endodontic rotary files aiming at fragment removal and the recovery of the original path of the root canal during a clinically acceptable period of time. METHODOLOGY Anodic polarization curves and redox curves were obtained to determine the conditions necessary for the dissolution of endodontic files. Anodic polarization of K3 files was performed, and analysis of variance (P < 0.05) was used to compare different test times in relation to weight… CONTINUE READING
