With the appearance of nickel-titanium (NiTi) alloy, the domain of endodontic instrument production discovered a material which is flexible, extremely elastic, resistant and bio-compatible. Working in continuous rotation became possible, through which a simplicity of use and incomparable time savings were achieved.
Most conventional reaming instruments (in stainless steel) are designed like screws, having one or more cutting helixes. The file design was not adapted to the new alloy, therefore, when used in continuous rotation, one main inconvenience appeared: the increased risk of screwing-in and blocking, which inevitably ends up in the instrument fracturing.
FKG Dentaire went a step ahead and developed a totally new file design to take advantage of the NiTi characteristics and to overcome the limits which are imposed by continuous rotation: the Race was born.
The Race system is the simple and advanced answer for endodontic treatments with a complete family of shaping and retreatment files with exclusive advantages and features.
Race instruments can be used in ad-hoc sequences according to the practitioner’s needs and are also available in specific sequences. They come in both sterile a
nd non-sterile packs.
Elimination of screwing-in effect.
Alternating cutting edges.
The exclusive patented file design avoids screwing-in effect and allows a better control of the instrument’s progression.
Optimal cutting efficiency
Triangular cross-section with sharp edges.
Exclusive rounded safety tip*
Perfect centering of the instrument in the canal
*Except for D-Race first instrument (DR1) which has an active tip.
Enhanced resistance against fatigue and corrosion
ScoutRace, for mechanised glide path preparation
Sequence of 3 instruments with .02 taper and with ISO sizes of 10, 15 and 20. Designed to mechanically prepare the glide path of root canals: straight, with severe curvature or “S” type.
Race ISO 10, for preparation of calcified or narrow canals
3 instruments all with a size of ISO 10 and with .02, .04 and .06 taper. Designed to permeabilize calcified or very narrow canals when manual K files of ISO 06 or 08 cannot progress further.
Race sequences for root canal preparation
BT-Race, biological and conservative
The ready to use BT-Race sequence is sterile-packed and single-use. The sequence, with 3 files, is suitable for most types of canals and allows to reach a final apical size of ISO 35/ .04*
iRace, quick, effective and safe
Only 3 iRace filed are needed to treat most cases. iRace sequence is easy to learn and to use, meaning considerable time saving and allows a final apical size of ISO 30/ .04*
BioRace, reliable and biological
BioRace has been specially designed to achieve the biological aim of the root canal treatment without compromising efficiency. The sequence – 6 files – is made to reach apical size of ISO 40/ .04*
Race sequences for retreatment
D-Race, root filling removal
D-Race files are intended to remove different filling materials – up to working length with only 2 instruments – such as gutta-percha, carriers, paste and resin-based materials.
The Race instruments are also available in individual sizes:
– ready to use sterile products in blisters
– non-sterile products in blisters or conventional plastic boxes.
BT-Race sequence is exclusively available in sterile blisters and intended to single-use. Only additional BT-Race 40 and BT-Race 50 files are proposed in individual sizes.
New finish on metal handles for contra-angle.
The aim is to provide easy edentification of the ISO diameter (wide ring) and of the taper (narrow ring). The information remains visible when the instrument is inserted in the head of the contra-angle.
On instruments of length 21/25/31 mm
Silicone Endo stop
To mark working length, radiopaque
Optimal use of Race instruments
Which motors can the Race files be used with?
Unit motors, to reach the minimum recommended speed of 600 rpm:
Endodontic motors, corded or cordless like the Rooter:
How many times can a Race be used?
SafetyMemoDiscs (SMD) come fixed to Race files. When the recommen- dations below are followed, SMD enables optimal use of the instruments and control over metal fatigue. Between one and four petals are removed from the flange after each treatment. The number of petals remaining indicates which types of treatment ate still possible.
