Stainless-steel prototypes characterized by five different cross-sectional shapes (square, triangular, rhomboidal, "S"-shaped, and the cross-sectional design of H-type files) and three different number of flutes (16, 24, and 32) were used for investigation of the relationship between design features and the resistance to bending and fracture of root canal instruments. Both resistance to bending (bending moment) and resistance to fracture (angular deflection and torque) were determined in… CONTINUE READING
