Figure 16: C-shaped canals instrumented with SAF vs. rotary files. (a) C-shaped canal instrumented with the ProTaper. Green: Before; red: After. (b) C-shaped canal instrumented with the SAF. Green: Before; red: After. Note that the SAF removed a uniform layer of dentin from most of the canal surface, while the rotary fi le instrumentation prepared a space for the master cones while failing to address the extremely complex oval shape of the canal (adapted from Solomonov et al. 2012)[27]
