Reciprocating Endodontic System

Dr. Shepherd uses the Dentsply Tulsa reciprocating endodontic system for all root canal treatments. Unlike rotary instruments, reciprocating systems use files with a defined range of motion to effectively clean the inside of the roots. Because the file never rotates a full 360 degrees, twisting is minimized, decreasing the risk of fatigue fracture and the chance that file fragments will break off inside the root. As a result, reciprocating instruments improve safety and optimize the long-term success of the root canal.
