Antibiotic therapy in endodontics: survey of dental surgeons of Ivory Coast.
Objective: In endodontic therapy, reciprocating motion is presented as being able to limit instrument
fatigue. The aim of this work was to compare endodontic files used in continuous rotation during two
types of motion: continuous rotation and reciprocating.
Methods: Seventy two instruments from six systems [MTwo (VDW), ProTaper (Dentsply-Maillefer), RaCe
(FKG), HERO 642, HeroShaper, and RevoS (Micro-Mega)] were tested. All these instruments had a 6% taper,
a size 25 tip, and a length of 25 mm, except the ProTaper, which was an F2. Each file was mounted on
an i-ENDO Dual motor (ACTEON), then subjected to bending fatigue on a fatigue test bench composed
of a hollow steel tube with a 60° bend, in which the instrument was set in either continuous rotation or
reciprocating motion at the same speed. The time to fracture was recorded in seconds using a chronometer.
Analysis of variance and a Wilcoxon non-parametric test with an alpha risk fixed at 5% were done.
Results: Reciprocating motion preserved the instruments better than continuous rotation did with significant differences (p<0.001).
Conclusion: Ni-Ti files break less fast in reciprocating motion than in continuous rotation.
