The Taper Has Been Edge-ified

ICON Taper Flexibility

Unmatched Flexibility

Heat-treated FireWire™ NiTi gives amazing flexibility, capable of 90° curves.

ICON Taper No Bounce Back

No Bounce Back

FireWire™ NiTi doesn’t bounce back to preserve apical anatomy

Incredible Strength

Twice the cyclic fatigue as Protaper Gold® and six times that of ProTaper®.

The EdgeTaper Platinum™ and the EdgeTaper™ are to be used in the same way, using the same technique and ProTaper® and ProTaper Gold®.  This familiar sequence will ensure the switch to EdgeTaper Platinum™ or EdgeTaper™ will be seamless.

EdgeTaper™ is not heat treated making it more like ProTaper®, files are strong with memory. EdgeTaper Platinum™ features our Heat-Treated Firewire™ NiTi making it strong and more flexible with 90° curves. EdgeTaper Platinum™ tests at twice the cyclic fatigue as ProTaper Gold® and 6 times the cyclic fatigue as ProTaper®.

Both file systems have a bloated triangular cross section with a progressive changing taper. Available in lengths 21mm, 25mm, 31mm with six of the same size file in each pack. Experience the new standard in file safety and canal centering ability.

ProTaper®

Cyclical fatigue test was performed using a custom test system with each file rotated at 500 RPM while 3mm of the file tip was inserted in a test block with a 90° curvature. Time to failure (seconds) was measured for each instrument.

Learn more about our testing method on our testing page.

File behaviors such as "No Bounce Back" can be viewed on our videos.

Matching Points

Matching gutta-percha points and paper points compliment both EdgeTaper™ systems for a perfect fill.

Matching Obturators

We have both EdgeCore® and EdgeFill® for both EdgeTaper™ systems in sizes 20, 25, 30, 40 and 50.

Please note images of points and obturators aren’t reflective of actual packaging; sizes vary according to taper sizes of corresponding file system.
