With so many endodontic motor options available to general dentists and endodontists today, it’s no wonder that clinicians can have a difficult time initially selecting the right one for them. On the other end of the spectrum, some clinicians can end up stockpiling multiple endodontic motors in their supply closets due to changes and advancements in technology, discontinuation of files, or simple dissatisfaction with the motor or system they’re using due to excessive file breakage, malfunction, or other issues. Selecting the Endo-Eze™ Genius® endodontic system instantly solves all of these issues. The Genius system is designed to switch between reciprocation movement to rotation, preventing file breakage that is so common in rotary-only endodontic motors. Although the Genius® files are designed specifically for the Genius® motor, in that they are compatible with both reciprocating and rotary movement, the motor’s open design allows for clinicians to use any files with the motor that they choose. Let’s further explore the reasons the Genius endodontic system is the last endo system clinicians will ever need.
Ultradent’s Genius endodontic system’s open design allows the clinician the freedom to do what’s best for the patient when it comes to files, file length, and brand. While the Genius endodontic system features the Genius files, which are especially designed to work with the Genius motor, Ultradent Products, Inc. believes in giving dentists and endodontists the power to choose. Additionally, the Genius endodontic system’s open design allows Ultradent and endodontic researchers to continue innovating, which in turn allows clinicians the ability to take advantage of new files and technologies that may become available in the future without having to purchase a new motor to accommodate them.
The scariest thing for dentists and endodontists when it comes to performing endodontic procedures is file breakage. That is why, upon dental school graduation, so many general practitioners refer their endodontic business out to specialists. The Genius endodontic system brings simple endodontics back to the dental practice thanks to its straightforward technology and the many options it leaves open to the clinician. The Genius motor not only comes with preprogrammed speed, torque, and angle settings to provide the ideal balance for endodontic procedures, but its reciprocation and rotary modes can be accessed and switched between during a procedure by the clinician with the touch of a button.
The reciprocation movement used in the Genius system, which cuts 90° and releases 30°, takes the tension off the file, helping to prevent breakage unlike many systems that only offer rotary. The beauty of being able to switch between reciprocation and rotary with the touch of a button is that clinicians get the best of both worlds — they are able to reach the working length of the canal through reciprocation safely, while finishing the procedure in rotation (rotary) mode in order to best remove any remaining debris from the canal without ever having to change the file. The Genius files are the only file designed to be used both in reciprocation and rotary movements.
Additionally, reciprocation and rotary systems like the Genius system further simplify endodontics by allowing most procedures to be completed with just two files. Ultradent recommends shaping the canal with a 25.04 file until working length is achieved and then completing the procedure with the finishing file of choice.

How many endodontic motors do clinicians have sitting, unused, on their storage shelves? The answer to that question for most would be “many.” So many times, doctors invest in a motor they believe in, only to find out later that the company that makes the motor has gone out of business or discontinued the product, or that the files have been discontinued, or even worse, that technological advances in endodontics have rendered the motor and its offerings obsolete. Also, many companies allow only their proprietary files to be used with the motor they sell, holding the clinician hostage to their pricing, their research and advancement (or lack thereof) in technology, and their techniques. Choosing the Genius endodontic system prevents these extremely common pitfalls, ensuring that the clinician’s investment in an open motor system can be his/her last.
