DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties today introduced a new rotary endodontic file – Vortex Blue™.

Utilizing a new and proprietary method of processing of NiTi wire that results in a Blue titanium oxide layer, Vortex Blue has a visibly new approach to metallurgy.  Vortex Blue features the same patented variable helical angle design as the original ProFile® Vortex® that clinicians have come to know and trust for efficiency and dependable clinical outcomes.

Vortex Blue also offers a leap forward in resistance to cyclic fatigue – the leading cause of file separation1 – with a minimum of a 65 percent improvement over M-Wire® NiTi and a minimum of 99 percent improvement over standard NiTi* (maximum results up to 353 percent better).  In addition to significantly greater resistance to cyclic fatigue, Vortex Blue delivers at least 42 percent higher peak torque strength over M-Wire NiTi* (maximum results up to 126 percent better).

Standard NiTi files try to revert to their original shape, but the proprietary processing of Vortex Blue rotary files reduces shape memory, giving the file the ability to naturally follow the curvature of the canal.

Vortex Blue Rotary Files are available in packs of six in .04 and .06 tapers and in sizes 15 through 50.

For more information on Vortex Blue, call 1-800-662-1202, visit www.tulsadentalspecialties.com or contact your DENTSPLY Tulsa Dental Specialties sales representative.

Latest News

There remains a growing belief among clinicians that obturation is to blame for endodontic failures. This notion has more recently fallen under scrutiny as researchers have discovered that the most thorough obturation can only reflect the quality of the cleaning and shaping of the canal. In fact, a number of researchers point to the thorough use of irrigants — making sure that the debris and irrigant itself are lifted completely out of the canal, not forced out the apex — as the most important determinant in the long-term success of an endodontic procedure.
