E3 CONSERVE GUIDE
No Change to Your Current Technique
The E3 Conserve ﬁle system has been designed with multiple tapers that ensure ﬂexibility and cut dentin in speciﬁc canal zones, while utilizing a .8 MFD for maximum pericervical dentin conservation, reducing the potential for over-preparation. E3 Conserve ﬁles are available in comparable sizes, lengths and tapers to the Dentsply® ProTaper Gold® ﬁle system, and Edge Endo® Edge Taper™ ﬁle system. They require no change to current protocol or technique and offer the same predictable results.
Creating Initial Access
- If removing a PFM or Zirconia crown, begin initial access by using the Great White or Great White Z.
- Locate the oriﬁces and create straight-line access using EndoGuide®.
- Once the canals are located, the walls are made smooth and parallel using the non-end cutting Endo Safe-End® bur to complete the access.
Minimally Invasive Endo Made Easy
- Scout the coronal half of the canal with a pre-bent size 8 ﬁle, followed by size 10 and, if needed, size 15
- Use the SX ﬁle in a brushing motion on the outstroke to enlarge the coronal portion of the canal
- Conﬁrm working length with an electronic apex locator and create a glide path using size 8 and 10 hand ﬁles, and Metabiomed Aurum G Glide Path Files if required
- Use the shaping ﬁles (S1 and S2 if required in narrow or more curved canals) with a brushing motion on the outstroke to working length.
- Use the ﬁnishing ﬁles (F1-F4) with an ‘in and out’ action (not brushing)
- Always make sure to work in a wet ﬁeld with NaOCl and use intra-canal lubricant when manually scouting canals
- Always irrigate and recapitulate with a size 10 hand ﬁle after each pass of a rotary ﬁle
- Frequently clean and inspect the ﬂutes of E3 Conserve ﬁles and discard if unwinding is seen
