Clinical Oral Investigations : Cyclic fatigue and torsional strength of reciprocating NiTi instruments
Clinical Oral Investigations July 2017
STUDY: Cyclic fatigue and torsional strength of three different thermally treated reciprocating nickel-titanium instruments
The study refers to Bassi Logic by its trade name in Brazil: ProDesign R.
About the Study:
The aim of this study was to evaluate the cyclic and torsional fatigue resistance of various reciprocating single-file systems.
Highlights from the study:
“ProDesign R [Bassi Logic Retreatment] showed the highest cyclic fatigue resistance compared to the other groups (P < 0.05).”
“The cross-sectional design and core diameter have significant effects on the cyclic fatigue resistance of NiTi instruments.”
