Endo Questions for the RWE Faculty:: Your opinion on Retreatment Rotary files Vs Profiles?

I have noted your preferred methods for removal of GP in retreatments  and wondered if you can share your opinion on the specific retreatment rotary files marketed for efficient removal of GP. What do you feel are the pros and cons in the hands of clinicians less experienced than yourself?

In reply to Stephen Shepherd Retreatments using EndoSequence Series are very efficient. It requires a specific way of using them (first removing the upper half of the gutta percha using orifice openers, then using a solvent followed by the use of EndoSequence files sizes 40-20 in crown down fashion with SSC until the apex is reached.)  Dr. Nasseh has planned a video tutorial on retreatment using his technique. It will be done within the next few months. 
Thank you.
