Torsional properties of the Canal Master instrument.


The torsional properties of a new type of endodontic hand instrument, the Canal Master, were compared with conventional machined K-type endodontic files. Sizes 20 through 50 were tested in clockwise (CW) and counterclockwise (CCW) directions. Canal Master instruments exhibited significantly less torque at yield and at failure in both the CW and CCW… (More)
