XP-endo Shaper is a truly innovative shaping instrument which can be used to radically simplify endodontic sequences. The unique feature of this file is its 3D canal shaping ability and less invasive cleaning and shaping procedures. The XP-endo Shaper is the instrument of choice for the treatment of complex canal configurations. It is the latest addition to the XP-endo range. It is a One File Shaper system.
