How does it work

Improved debris removal

EN_Apical

Less apical debris extruded with TF Adaptive vs wave one

Manual step-back technique extruded 207% more debris from the apex than TF Adaptive.

Wave One technique extruded 59% more debris from the apex than TF Adaptive.

Fewer File Breakages

TF Files

Successful endo through progressive canal negotiation

TF Adaptive helps clinicians avoid the risk of file fracture:

  • Adaptive motion results in resistance to cyclic fatigue.
  • Adaptive motion lessens the twisting stress on the file as well.
  • TF Files’ crystalline structure provide a greater range of elasticity.
  • More resistance to fracture.
  • Superior strength provides high durability.

Adaptation in Motion

Rotary when you want it. Reciprocation when you need it.

Start with green and stop with red

Intuitive colour-coded file identification. Colour-coded system designed for efficiency and ease of use.

Just like a traffic light...

TF Adaptive Technique

Leveraging the success of our clinically-proven Twisted File design: Rotary when you want it, Reciprocation when you need it.

Use the hand file to establish glide path and determine correct TFA file working sequence.

EN_Workflow

Simplified Procedures

Why does it simplify the dental procedure?

The unique combination of NiTi Twisted Files and the Elements Motor's exclusive algorithm assures:

  • Exceptional file control by switching between rotation and reciprocation as needed.
  • Minimised risk of file fracture owing to a smooth
    and continuous file surface.
  • Using the system is as intuitive as driving!

simplicity-TF-Adaptive-system

How does it do this?

The Elements Motor Adaptive Motion Technology automatically adjusts its movement, reducing intracanal torsional forces depending on the amount of stress placed on the file.

Testimonials

The small sequence allows me to predictably and safely treat canals with complex curvatures. The medium-large sequence is similar to a single file technique, but by adding a second size 35 instrument (which takes only 5 to 10 seconds) greatly improves apical shaping, allowing 20 to 30 percent better enlargement than size 25. Additionally, it provides the space needed for irrigation. This means better quality of apical preparation and irrigation, due to better removal of bacteria and pulp tissue in the most delicate and important areas.
Dr. Gianluca Gambarini
An instrument like this takes away a lot of risk a general dentist would encounter with root canals. The TF Adaptive is a very simple system that will give someone excellent results and will keep them in that safe zone. With that, the doctor has more confidence, can offer the patient more compassion, and can really feel comfortable when treating root canal cases
Dr. Brett Gilbert
You put the file into the hand piece, follow the procedure card and just feel the tactile change. You just let the file do the work for you—it’s just so simple and easy to use.
Dr. Thomas Jovicich
Other files may have separated in the canal: “The motor is able to react immediately to avoid the situation where the instrument binds in the canal, but continues to turn then eventually separates. The adaptive motion motor gets feedback from the instrument, and if the instrument is under too much stress, it backs off the power and reverses direction to avoid separating the instrument. It’s a cool concept.
Dr. Brett Gilbert
I can choose between two sequences (medium-large or small). Different approaches to canal shaping makes the TF Adaptive perfect for all cases.
Dr. Gianluca Gambarini
The development of TF Adaptive has made it fun to do endodontics again. It´s fast, effective and very easy to implement in every practice. With the Adaptive system file fractures are prevented, and we never feel uncertain with the rotating system with TF Adaptive. The identification is as simple as a traffic light – so Go as in Green and Go TF Adaptive.
Dr. Carsten Blok
My first experience of TF Adaptive files was exceptional debris removal. The combination of a new motion technology with a simple and intuitive color code helps me in my endodontic practice, tested and approved!
Dr. Alexis Gaudin
Incorporating TF Adaptive files, Endovac and the Elements Obturation Unit into my daily practice allowed a standardization of all my endodontic treatments, thus ensuring that all requirements are met for a quality treatment in a cost-effective, simple and safe way. A successful concept for root canal treatment. I’d recommend it to any practitioner looking to increase their efficiency. With TF Adaptive files, I’m truly confident in tackling any root canal anatomy, in a simple, safe and predictable way, reducing my concerns about file separation. This is the only file system I will need. It’s time to perform Endo without worries. Thanks to TF Adaptive, Endovac and the Elements Obturation Unit, I have a step-by-step technique for completing any root canal treatment with the highest quality requirements. Now Endo is more simple, secure, time saving and predictable.
Dr. Hugo Sousa Dias
TF Adaptive has changed my method of mechanical preparation for the canal system into something predictable, safe and very fast! And safety is the most important of those.
Dr. Monika Dzieciątkowska
TF Adaptive has given me the confidence to shape tortuous anatomy and a greater sense of control.
Dr. Imran Cassim
Working with TFA is like a walk in the park – easy, predictable and pleasurable. I've fell in love when I introduced the first file to the canal!
