Bassi Logic, once known as Easy Logic, has a strong focus on minimally invasive dentistry—and that means they’re offering files that provide less aggressive shaping yet are quicker and stronger.
Bassi Endo claims the files offer 3.5 times the cyclic fatigue resistance of other major brands, which meant I had to try them. Using one of the most intricate plastic blocks I’ve ever seen, Dr. Bassi demonstrated the file’s extreme flexibility and resistance to separation. I then tried to separate a file in a way that would be criminal in real life to no avail. Score one for Bassi Logic files.
The other claim I had to test was that the file offered faster cutting similar to stainless steel files but with a NiTi instrument. That only can be proven in a real life setting with real teeth. After a week of use, I came away thoroughly impressed with the file system. I admit I was not comfortable with a one file system and as such used Bassi files as part of my preferred treatment protocol. Even so, I can agree with the company’s claim that these files are fast!
In their effort to preserve tooth structure, Bassi has moved their files to a .03 and .05 taper. This does create issues with using non-Bassi gutta percha, but that minor inconvenience may be worth it when our goal is to save teeth.
