HyFlex CM (controlled memory) rotary files are changing the DNA of Ni-Ti files. The files are manufactured utilizing a unique process that controls the material’s memory, making the files extremely flexible without the shape memory of other Ni-Ti files. This makes the file follow the canal without creating undesired lateral forces on the canal walls, substantially reducing the risk of file separation and complications such as ledging, transportation, and perforation. The file is very safe. It is up to 300% more resistant to cyclical fatigue compared to standard Ni-Ti files—based on some studies—reducing the incidence of file separation. Clinicians will also be able to reuse HyFlex CM files because the shape of bent files or straightened spirals is restored during autoclaving.
