Abstract

This review highlights the endodontic ultrasonic tips. Ultrasounds (US) were discovered within the 18th century thanks to their employment within the kingdom Animalia. Richman was the primary to supply this approach to endodontics in 1957. Endodontics now uses ultrasound to irrigate root canals, remove posts, damaged tools, and other obstacles from the foundation canal, distribute sealant across the root canal walls, condense gutta-percha root fillings, and improve dentin permeability during bleaching. Ultrasonics have progressed from primary instrumentation to a passive ultrasonic cleaning approach in root canals. Modern ultrasonic units must be capable of high power and precision cutting, further because of the ability to manage not only the frequency but also the amplitude of the vibrations. Ultrasonic tip designs range from basic curves to multiangled bends and are available in varying form of shapes and sizes. Over the previous 65 years, the evolution of ultrasound in dentistry has been examined.

Keywords: Ultrasonic tips, ultrasound, multiangled bends, root canals
