Pre-SAF Glidepath

Pre-SAF glidepath files Pre-SAF glidepath files

The Pre-SAF rotary instruments are designed to provide the suitable glidepath preparation for the Self-Adjusting Files.

 

The Pre-SAF instruments include the Pre-SAF OS (orifice shaper, sized #40/.10), the Pre-SAF 1 (for narrow canals, sized #15/.02) and the Pre-SAF 2 (allows glidepath for the SAF 1.5mm, sized #20/.04).

The Pre-SAF instruments are designed:

 

  • With alternating cutting edges, to reduce the "screwing effect" that many times occurs with rotary instruments
  • Their tip is rounded, for safety reasons, to assure that the instrument centralizes in the canal
  • Highly flexible, to allow suitability to curved canals
  • Electro-chemical polish, to reduce corrosion and fatigue
