Vortex Blue

The Blue Standard

Known for their shape memory, standard NiTi files continually try to revert to their original straight state. The proprietary processing of Vortex Blue rotary files reduces shape memory. Once in the canal, Vortex Blue follows the natural curvature of the tooth.

Greater Resistance to Cyclic Fatigue

Cyclic fatigue is the leading cause of file separation.1 Vortex Blue rotary files offer a remarkable leap forward in resistance to cyclic fatigue.2 The numbers say it all:


  • Minimum of 65% improvement in cyclic fatigue resistance over M-Wire NiTi.2
  • Minimum of 99% improvement in cyclic fatigue resistance over standard NiTi. (Maximum results up to 353% better).3



It’s a new standard in durability for shaping curved canals with confidence.

Increased Torque Strength

In rotary file design, increased cyclic fatigue resistance usually comes with a trade-off in torque strength. Vortex Blue rotary files are different. In addition to significantly greater resistance to cyclic fatigue, they offer at least a 42% higher peak torque strength increase over M-Wire NiTi2 (Maximum results up to 126% better). That’s strength you can count on.

It’s more than a shade better. It’s the color of optimum performance – with greater resistance to cyclic fatigue, increased torque strength and reduced shape memory while conforming to natural curvatures.
