INTRODUCTION Rotary instruments made of a new nickel-titanium (NiTi) alloy (M-Wire) have shown improved cyclic fatigue resistance and mechanical properties compared with those made of conventional superelastic NiTi wires. The objective of this study was to characterize microstructural changes of M-Wire throughout the cyclic fatigue process under controlled strain amplitude. METHODS The average fatigue life was calculated from 30 M-Wire samples that were subjected to a strain-controlled (≈ 4… CONTINUE READING
