Komet's Q Series consist of Procodile Q™ (reciprocating file system) and FQ (rotary file system). Dr. Lauren Kuhn, endodontist, highlights 3 key features that you should know when it comes to these files.

Q Stands for Heat

FQ and Procodile Q™ are heat-treated, making them extremely flexible. You're also less likely to end up with a broken endo file.

Their Double-S Cross Section Increases Efficiency

If you were to cut the Q Series files axially, you would see a double-S cross section. This allows you to cut more efficiently rather than wiping or scraping that can occur with other cross sections (such as WaveOne Gold and Protaper's paralellogram design). Procodile Q™ and FQ's design also helps you get down into the canals more efficiently and faster.

Their Variably Tapered Core Decreases Debris Compaction

Procodile Q™ and FQ feature a variably tapered core which increases the chip spaces. Dr. Kuhn notices that the Q Series files offer more space for debris, so there is less debris compaction.
