Unlike conventional NiTi files, the XP-3D Shaper features MaxWire® Technology which allows the instrument to expand and become more robust when exposed to body temperature. Once adequate glidepath is established, the entire canal can be shaped without the need for multiple files.
The XP-3D Shaper features a small flexible core (#30 / .01) which is extremely resistant to cyclic fatigue. The unique serpentine design allows the instrument to gently abrade the inner walls of the root canal without the stress associated with conventional NiTi files.
Unlike conventional NiTi files the XP-3D Shaper features a free-floating adaptive core. This unique design allows the smaller central core of the file to move freely and adapt to the canals natural anatomy.
