A Short Guide Through the Niti Jungle

Niti instruments have been the driving force of advanced procedures in Endodontics in the past 20 years. However, without detailed understanding of the physical/chemical basis of Nickel-Titanuim alloys, their best employment in various anatomical situations is limited. In addition, the incorrect use of the description of pseudo-elastic as well as shape-memory material has led to confusing images of their applications.

Objectives:

  • Provide a short overview on the history and development of endodontic Niti-Instruments
  • Reveal the major differences of various today available alloys and their properties relevant to dental use
