INSTRUCTION FOR USE
Endostar EP EasyPath
Amber HT Technology
Files used for creating a glide-path are a technological challenge. They are the first to penetrate narrow, curved and often calcified canals. They need to be thin and flexible, but also resistant to breaking inside the canal.
Creating a file which would fulfill all these requirements is not easy. For that reason, Amber HT Technology by Poldent was designed to improve the quality of the NiTi alloy and create a safe glide-path file.
– High flexibility.
-High resistance to twisting in the root canal
-Easy to follow the canal path.
-Safe and quick preparation of the glide path

Safety provided by core design
A massive file core which is S-shaped on cross section guarantees safe passage even in strongly calcified canals.
The combination of the newest advances in metallurgy together with the file’s design provides maximum safety.
Exceptional taper and ISO size
A specially designed variable decreasing taper facilitates a seamless path down the root canal, thanks to decreased resistance in the coronal part of the canal. At the same time, a minimal amount of dentine is removed around the canal orifices.
The use of size ISO 14 at the tip is a compromise between arriving at the apex easily and the ability to safely continue shaping the canal with a larger rotary instrument.
Endostar EP Easy Path step-by-step instructions
-Isolate the tooth with a rubber dam.
-Prepare straight-line access to the root canal.
-Use a hand ISO 10 K-file to establish patency and measure working length.
-Fill the canal with an irrigating solution.
-Mount the Endostar EP Easy Path instrument to the handpiece and insert into the canal.
-Move the instrument in an up-and-down motion with very little pressure towards the apical part (the instrument should naturally progress down the canal). Use a pecking motion with an amplitude of 2-3 mm.
-After 3 to 4 up-and-down movements, remove the instrument from the canal and clean it with a sponge located in the instrument box.
-Irrigate the canal.
-Repeat steps 6- 8 until working length is reached.
-Continue shaping the canal with your files of choice, for example the Endostar E3 Azure.
Recommended torque settings
Recommended torque is 1 Ncm (up to 1.5 Ncm for experienced users). Recommended speed is 300 rpm (up to 500 rpm for experienced users). If your handpiece/ endodontic motor offers only pre-set levels of torque setting, choose a level that will not exceed the recommended values.
