iM3 Control Cut Manual Files
Used in a clockwise turning movement. K-Reamers are designed to follow the canal
and minimise ledging. K-Reamers have less turns on the active part than K-files.
H-Files or Hedstrom Files, are used in a filing up and down action to file and shape
the root canal. Some specialists prefer H-Files on straight canals. H-Files are very
efficient at removing dentine on the out-stroke, with poor fracture resistance in
H-Files and K-Reams that are made from steel have high durability and reliability.
While they have an element of flexibility, it is not as much when compared with
H-Files and K -Reamers made from nickel titanium or Ni-Ti give them increased
strength and significantly greater flexibility compared with steel.
