iM3 Small Animal Dental Equipment
With the help of veterinary dental specialists, iM3 have developed a unique file system called Control Cut.
Our files have a working cutting edge only on the bottom third and have a safe inactive tip. They are unlike
elongated human files that cut along their entire length which constantly thin the tooth walls of curved
canals as well as expand the access holes throughout the shaping. Control Cut files are precise and focused
on the area you need to shape.
Control Cut files are made using Memory Ni-Ti.
Not only do they have the best flexibility of any
file system, they also can retain the shape they
are given including multiple curves and bends.
The heat of the autoclave straightens out the
files again, ready for the next use.
iM3 Control Cut - Rotary Endo Files
The Crown Down method begins with using the XN file which has a larger 0.07 taper as a gate opener. In
human endodontics the procedure is to then use the smallest ISO with the highest taper, as you continue
you use larger ISO with lower tapers, finishing with the largest ISO and smallest taper. This works in veterinary
on long thin canals. As a hybrid of this technique we use a 0.07 XN file to start and a 0.06 taper for the rest of
the shaping on short wide canals. For narrow canals the taper goes from a 0.07 XN file to a 0.04 taper for the
rest. The inactive tip makes it easy to guide the instrument in the root canal and guarantees safety. In case of
overloading during the root canal preparation, the inactive tip prevents instrument fracture and allows only
We offer our Control Cut files in 31 mm human
length and in the industry-preferred 60 mm
length, which are perfect for all sizes of cats and
dogs, and ideal for straight, or curved canals.
As part of the Control Cut file system, we offer
varied tapers, giving you the ability to shape
wider or thinner canals as needed. Files are sold
in sets based on the sequence they are used in
the Crown Down method.
