The new standard… now at half the cost.
The EdgeTaper Platinum™ and the EdgeTaper™ are available in 21mm, 25mm, and by the end of 2015, 31mm lengths and are to be used in the same way, using the same technique and ProTaper® and ProTaper Gold®. This familiar sequence will ensure the switch to EdgeTaper Platinum™ or EdgeTaper™ will be seamless.
EdgeTaper Platinum™ features our heat-treated Firewire™ NiTi and tests at twice the cyclic fatigue as ProTaperGold® and 6 times the cyclic fatigue as ProTaper®. Experience the new standard in file safety and canal centering ability – at half the price!
The Amazing Strength of EdgeTaper
Cyclic Fatigue Testing – Average Time to Failure in Seconds
- EdgeTaper Platinum™
- ProTaper Gold®
Cyclical fatigue test was performed using a custom test system with each file rotated at 500 RPM while 3mm of the file tip was inserted in a test block with a 90° curvature. Time to failure (seconds) was measured for each instrument.
