Reciprocal Files RA
Efficient Root Canal Shaping with one File!
- Same design as WaveOne® Gold means no change to your current treatment protocol.
- The files have been heat treated to deliver optimal strength.
- Dedicated matching Reciprocal Gold gutta-percha and paper points for efficient obturation.
- Single file system offers ease of use and greater efficiency.
- Reciprocal Gold files can be sterilized for re-use for a lower cost-per-procedure.

Reciprocal Gold Treatment Protocol
- Start with a Reciprocal Gold primary file (25/.07) in the presence of an irrigant. Use short 3 mm amplitude strokes in a gentle inward motion, to passively advance the file.
- Irrigate, recapitulate with a K-File (10), irrigate.
- Repeat in 3 mm increments until working length is reached.
- It is important to withdraw the Reciprocal Gold file every 3 mm to remove the debris and inspect its cutting flutes. Irrigate, recapitulate with a K-File (10) and irrigate again.
Reciprocal Gold Shaping Files Technique
- Establish straight-line coronal and radicular access.
- In the presence of a viscous chelator, use a size 10 hand file to verify a glide path to length. In more restrictive canals, use a size 10 hand file in any region of a canal to create a glide path.
- Expand this glide path to at least .15 mm using either a manual or dedicated mechanical file.
- ALWAYS initiate the shaping procedure with the primary file (25/.07 red) in the presence of sodium hypochlorite.
- Use gentle inward pressure and let the primary file passively progress through any region of the canal that has a confirmed glide path. After shaping 2-3 mm of any given canal, remove and
clean the PRIMARY file, then irrigate, recapitulate with a size 10 hand file and re-irrigate.
- Continue with the primary file, in 2-3 passes, to pre-enlarge the coronal two thirds of the canal.
- Utilize a brushing motion on the outstroke to eliminate coronal interferences or to enhance shaping results in canals that exhibit irregular cross-sections.
- In more restrictive canals, use a size 10 hand file, in the presence of viscous chelator, negotiate to the terminus of the canal. Gently work this file until it is completely loose at length.
- Establish working length, confirm patency and verify the glide path.
- Expand this glide path to at least .15 mm using a manual or mechanical glide path file.
- Carry the primary file to the full working length in one or more passes. Upon reaching length, remove the file to avoid over-enlarging the foramen. Inspect the apical flutes; if they are loaded
with dentinal debris, then the shape is finished *.
- If the primary doesn’t progress then use the small file (20/.07 yellow) in one or more passes to working length and then use the primary file to working length to optimize the shape.
- When the shape is confirmed, proceed with 3-D disinfection protocols.
*If the primary file is loose at length with no dentinal debris in the apical flutes, continue shaping with medium file (35/.06 green) and/or large file (45/.05 white) until the apical flutes are loaded.
