Neoprobe’s minimal taper at 1% helps to perform intermediate steps in calcified or curved canal
ISO Sizes : 012
Length : 21, 25 mm
Packaging : x 6
Length : 21 & 25 mm
Ability to detect curvatures during initial probing
Provides excellent tactile sensation
Aids in negotiating blocks and calcifications due to its flexibility
Low potential for file separation
When a #12 1% file is removed from the canal, the file has an impression of the canal; thereby guiding the operator to the curvatures present in the canal (not possible with NiTi hand files)
Neoprobe Usage protocol:
In severely narrow canals start with watch winding motion to remove initial dentin, followed by vertical in and out motion with 1 mm amplitude.
Gradually increase the amplitude as dentin wall wears away and file advances apically.
