Do I have to introduce k file no 10 between each rotary file to achieve apical patency ??

Generally no. If you have good irrigation protocol and motion etiquette you should not have too mich loose debri and patency check is not needed between each file. But if you dont, then it’s helpful to do that albeit quite inefficient.

Does introducing k file no 10 could push debris and bacteria beyond Apex ??
