Eighty artificial root canals were created in individual sections of bovine bone. Each canal was instrumented to a size 80 using four types of endodontic instruments Hedstrom files K-files reamers and the new Unifile. Using volume of bone removed per unit of time, the efficiency of instruments was compared. The Hedstrom file proved statistically p less than .05 to be the most efficient in removing bone from the straight artificial canals.
