Since the first day Self-Adjusting File, SAF was introduced to the Swedish market, we started to use SAF as our primery system for endodontics. Of course, it’s not easy to change from an old system to a new, but for us in this case it wasn’t any doubt. Today we are proud to see the result of our root canal surgery, even 5 years after the treatment.
The Self-Adjusting File (SAF) represents a paradigm shift in modern endodontics as the first instrument that truly addresses the basic cleaning, shaping and obturation principles of endodontic treatment in all three dimensions.
The SAF is supported by dozens of research papers published in the leading endodontic journals, representing its superiority over rotary files and turning it into a true evidence-based endodontic concept.
The SAF is a hollow file designed as an elastically compressible, thin-walled pointed cylinder that is composed of a nickel-titanium lattice.
The SAF is used as a single instrument to achieve complete 3D root canal cleaning and shaping in a minimally invasive way. Its hollow shape allows for the continuous flow of irrigant through its lumen to achieve superior disinfection.
The SAF’s mode of operation eliminates many of the risks and drawbacks attributed to rotary NiTi files, leading to better and safer treatment.
- The Self-Adjusting File (SAF) adapts to the root canal’s natural anatomy.
- Shaping by vertical scrubbing (5000 vibrations per minute), with simultaneous agitated irrigation.
- Only 4 minutes of shaping, cleaning and agitation.
