Single Use Disposable Endodontic Files

Even though endodontic files are capable of being sterilized and used on multiple patients, Dr. Tinnin places our patient’s safety above the cost savings with multiple uses. Each patient’s treatment is performed with new, sterilized, and sharp instruments. Following your treatment, your instruments are placed in a sharps container and placed with other medical waste that will be collected by our service and properly disposed of. The likelihood of developing an infection from a previously used instrument is small; however, we will not take that risk for you.  Disposable endodontic products are used when possible. All other equipment, instruments and products are sterilized according to the manufacturers’ specifications.
