What Are Gattes Glidden Drills?

Gates Glidden Drills are a set of endodontic instruments designed for use in root canal procedures. These drills are named after their inventor, Dr. John M. C. Gates, and are commonly used by dental professionals (mainly endodontists) to shape and enlarge the coronal portion of the root canal system. 

Key purposes and applications:

  1. Coronal Enlargement: These drills are designed to selectively remove dentin from the coronal aspect of the root canal, helping to create a wider opening at the top of the canal.

  2. Access to Canal Orifices: By enlarging the coronal portion, Gates Glidden Drills facilitate improved access to the canal orifices, allowing for better visibility and manipulation of other endodontic instruments.

  3. Debridement and Cleaning: The drills aid in the removal of debris, pulp tissue, and infected dentin from the pulp chamber, contributing to effective cleaning and disinfection of the root canal system.

  4. Facilitation of Instrumentation: The coronal shaping provided by Gates Glidden Drills can make it easier for subsequent endodontic instruments, such as files and reamers, to navigate and shape the more apical parts of the root canal.
