STUDY: Efficacy of CM-Wire, M-Wire, and Nickel-Titanium Instruments for Removing Filling Material from Curved Root Canals: A Micro-Computed Tomography Study


The study refers to Bassi Logic by its trade name in Brazil: ProDesign Logic. 


About the Study:

The aim of this ex vivo study was to evaluate the removal of filling material after using CM-wire, M-wire, and nickel-titanium instruments in both reciprocating and rotary motions in curved canals.


Highlights from the study:

“The use of a ProDesign Logic [Bassi logic] 50/.01 CM-wire file significantly reduced the residual material at the apical levels compared with the use of reciprocating files.”
