Single File Shaping Technique Improves Practitioner Efficiency and Shaping Speed.
DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties today announced WaveOne™, a single-use reciprocating file and obturation system expected to set new standards in root canal shaping procedures. WaveOne will allow practitioners to save time and increase patient safety while providing premium-quality root canal treatment.
WaveOne is an M-Wire® Nickel Titanium file powered by the e3™ Torque Control Motor with reciprocating motion – a rotation technique that reduces file breakage, while requiring only one instrument per root canal in most cases. WaveOne has been shown to decrease total shaping time by up to 40 percent compared to traditional rotary techniques in continuous motion.
“Single file shaping of an entire root canal system may sound like a myth to some, but with WaveOne, trying is believing,” said Greg Phillips, Senior Category Manager for DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties. “The patented motion uses a large rotating angle in the cutting direction, while using a smaller angle in the opposite direction. This allows the file to eventually make complete revolutions – something no other reciprocation system has been able to achieve. The motion helps the WaveOne file to successively progress along the canal path while respecting the root canal anatomy.”
WaveOne is developed for single use, removing the risk of cross-contamination and dramatically reducing the potential for dangerous file breakage. WaveOne files are available exclusively in pre-sterilized blister packs and fitted with a nonautoclavable handle.
With 15 programmable continuous rotation settings, the e3™ Torque Control Motor is pre-programmed with settings for the WaveOne reciprocating file, as well as all Tulsa Dental Specialties’ continuous file systems including ProTaper®, ProFile® Vortex® and GT Series X®, and the Gates Glidden drills.

RACINE, WI – Science has shown that irrigants are more effective when they are electro-mechanically activated. Acoustic streaming and cavitation of endodontic solutions has been shown to significantly enhance cleansing of difficult anatomy. Studies have shown that low frequency (Sonic) oscillation (160-190Hz) was not sufficient in creating acoustic streaming or cavitation within the canal space.
EndoUltra™ is the only cordless, compact, battery operated piezo ultrasonic (40kHz) activation device. Only EndoUltra™ is capable of producing acoustic streaming and cavitation in small canal spaces, resulting in significantly improved debridement, disruption of biofilm, improved penetration of irrigants into dentinal tubules, and the removal of vapor lock. Resulting in improved outcomes.
