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 rotation.
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 Ni-Ti.
H-Files and K -Reamers made from nickel titanium or Ni-Ti give them
increased strength and significantly greater flexibility compared
