About DC Taper

Mary Um DMD, MS - Recommends SS White's DCTaper Rotary File System from SS White Dental on Vimeo.


V-Taper 2H, now known as DC Taper H files are constructed of heat-treated Nickel Titanium and have a variable tapered design. The design allows a tapered preparation at the apical portion of the root canal, while conserving dentine in the coronal portion.

V Taper FIle Versus Protaper FileV Taper 2H is 27% more narrow at D12 than Protaper

SS White and E3 Endo have a preference for users to be trained prior to using V-Taper 2h files in the clinic. For training, please contact us.
