The Universal EndoHandle can be used in addition to the original EndoHandle System. It is commonly used by Endodontists when treating more difficult cases, such as Retreatments and very calcified canals, where additional files are needed. The Universal EndoHandle is made of anodized aluminum and is autoclavable. The files are not permanently attached and require the user to place a disposable, MicroFile or pre-bent standard endodontic file in the unique locking chamber. A quick twist of the long handle firmly secures the file to the EndoHandle. If you are not using Venta Endo's MicroFiles you will need to place a contra-angle bend in the shaft of the file before placing it into the chamber. Universal EndoHandles are all the same size, they are color-coded to ISO specifications so you can match the file size to the color of handle allowing quick recognition of files sizes.
Filing with The EndoHandle
The EndoHandle uses a simple and effective Circumferential Linear Filing technique. It is a straight-line/up-down filing motion done sequentially around the periphery of the canal. The file is placed in the canal and withdrawn in a directional manner against each side of the canal wall. No rotation, just safe straight-line filing to sculpt and clean the walls of the canal. The leverage of filing with the EndoHandle is at least five times more effective than traditional two-finger filing.
