“I really enjoy how miniKUT files allow me to often take a “Single File to Length” approach. These files provide great handling, flexibility and by far the best cutting efficiency I’ve experienced. At high speed (500 and up to 900rpm) miniKUT files feel like they are going through butter. I love them”

Case 1:

‘MIE gone MIA’ The miniKUT .20 .03 (Mb2, Db) and .30 .03 (Mb1) and even the .35 .05 (palatal) allowed for working around dentin and enamel structures that maintain the structural integrity of the tooth. The flexibility of the .03 tapers made it possible to easily shape Mb1, Mb2 and all communicating canals.

Case 2:

‘The daily routine’ Upper first molar with a partial necrotic pulp and both small and wide canals. Mb1 and join to split again at the apex. A perfect blend of both .03 and .05 tapers were used to sufficiently prepare the canals and respect the lateral anatomy. (Mb1: .35 .03, Mb2: .15 03, Db: .25 .03, P: .30 .05).

Case 3:

'The Bypass' Save and ‘stress-free’ bypass of a fractured instrument blocking the Ml root canal up to a .30 .03 in a lower first molar with 3 mesials and a previously enlarged distals. (Mb: .30 .03, mM: .20 03, Ml: .30 .03; Db-Dl: .35 .05).

Case 4:

Necrotic upper molar with a more challenging Mb1 and Mb2 anatomy. Since conventional irrigation (30G irrigation-needle) was used, shaping of the Mb’s was done to a .30 3% and the Db to a .35 3% all following rotary negotiation with the EZP .15 3% miniKUT file. The palatal canal was a straight and wide canal in comparison to the rest so a .45 3% nailed the job.
