This is a part one of a two part review of Scout Race Files by Brasseler USA.
These files are used for pre-enlargement of the canal prior to final shaping. They are helpful for more difficult anatomy cases where NiTi flexibility and rotary speed comes handy as well as cases where the operator is not interested in using extensive hand filing. These instruments can replace most hand filing; however, the use of a stainless steel hand file, although small (size 6 or 8 hand file) is still recommended prior to using these files. Hand instrumentation prior to rotary instrumentation is always a safe way to prepare the canal.
