Evidence-based medicine is an essential tool in assessing any root canal instrumentation system.

The Self-Adjusting File (SAF) System has been the target of many research projects, by world renowned researchers in the field of endodontology. ReDent Nova encourages and supports such pre-clinical and clinical studies.

More than a 100 independent peer-reviewed articles about the SAF System have been published in the leading endodontic journals, such as Journal of Endodontics, International Endodontic Journal, and more, presenting the abilities of the SAF System and turning it into a true evidence-based endodontic concept.

You are invited to browse through the various abstracts below. For most of the articles, a link to the full text of the article was also made available by the publishing journal or the authors.
