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.

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.
