S1 Reciprocating System

Yes, we arrange workshops on a regular basis in all markets where we are present. For information on dates, take a look at our web page Courses & Events or ask your local dealer.

The S1 Small file is indicated for very small / narrow canals. In canals where the S1 Plus 25/06 file cannot easily proceed to working length, use the S1 Small 15/06 file.

We recommend that you clean, disinfect and lubricate the contra-angle in-between every patient. For more details, please consult the instructions for use.

The S1 files are pre-sterilized and ready to use, we recommend that you use them as single-use prior to expiration date.

This situation can occur in a very long canal, where the files working part is passing the floor of the cavity. The best way to avoid this situation is to use a brushing motion with the file on the “way out” of the canal during preparation.

You can use the S1 files and the S5 files in the S1 contra-angle handpiece.

No, with the S1 reciprocating movement the torque control isn’t needed. The reciprocating movement reduces the tension of the file completely every time it moves in the counter clockwise direction.

No, the S1 files are indicated for reciprocating movement and shall not be used in the S5 Endo Motor.

No, it will be very difficult to do the obturation already after a size 15/06. Our recommendation is to prepare the canal up to a size 25/06 (S1 Plus file) before obturation.

Yes, our Big Apical Files in sizes ISO 35, ISO 40, ISO 45 and ISO 50, all with a taper of .04, are available for use with the S1 system.

Use the S1 Small file in cases with very narrow canals if the S1 Plus (25/06) file does not reach working length. After reaching working length with the S1 Small file, finish the preparation with the S1 Plus (25/06) file.

Yes, the files are ready to use out of the package.

No, and there is no need for it. The reciprocating movement enables safe progression of the S1 files without torque control.

The S1 Plus file has an S-shaped cross section with a positive cutting angle.

Yes, all are sterile blister packed. Ready to use.

No, we do not recommend use of the S1 files in other endo motors or contra-angle handpieces. The S1 contra-angle handpiece creates the correct movement for safe and efficient use with the S1 files.

Yes, just connect the S1 Apex Clip to the S1 contra-angle handpiece and your apex locator to the apex clip.

No, our recommendation is to use your regular irrigation solution (sodium hypochlorite) and to irrigate sufficiently.

The S5 Apex Locator touch probe can be cleaned using a washer disinfector. However, for the file clip we recommend autoclaving as it is not intended for processing in a washer disinfector.

The lip clip can be processed in a washer disinfector and by autoclaving.

The measurement cable should never be processed in a washer disinfector and must NOT be autoclaved. It can be cleaned using wipes soaked in alcohol.

No, the device is calibrated automatically.

The file clip and lip hooks, not the patient cable.
