The Effect of Multiple Glass Beads Sterilization Cycles on Cyclic Fatigue of AF Blue S One File
Keywords:Sterilization, Glass Beads, Endodontic Files; Toxicity; sterilization.
Introduction: Sterilization represent an important and essential aspect, now days Most of the dentists
usually use the endodontic files for many times before they discard it, this could increase the need for
reliable and fast sterilization method, but without affecting the physical properties of the endodontic files.
Aim of the Study: This study discusses an economic method of sterilization (glass bead) and its effect on
the fracture resistance of the AF Blue S one file (Fanta) with multiple reuses of the system.
Method and Materials: A total of 75 AF BLUE S one NiTi Rotary files (FANTA) #25 size with 0.04
taper and 25 millimeter length, were used in this study, divided into three groups to test their cyclic fatigue
resistance after multiple sterilization cycles.
Result: The results were statically analyzed using (SPSS) software, Anova test showed a statically high
significant differences between the groups. Conclusions: Within the limitation of this study, it can be
concluded that AF Blue S one file with 4 time glass bead sterilization cycle was the most fatigue resistant
compared to zero and two sterilization cycle.
