The present study sought to compare the torsional and bending resistance of WaveOne Gold (Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties, Tulsa, OK, USA), Reciproc (VDW, Munich, Germany) and Twisted File Adaptive (Axis/SybronEndo, Orange, CA, USA) instruments. The findings demonstrated that WaveOne Gold displayed higher resistance to torsional stress and flexibility compared with Reciproc and Twisted File Adaptive instruments. Likewise, torsional resistance and flexibility properties of the instruments could be affected by the alloy from which the instrument is manufactured and different cross–sectional design.
