In brief: K-file vs H-file

The most common endodontic file is the k-file.
It has a square or triangle cross section and is twisted from a stainless steel blank. H-file on the other hand is machined and has a teardrop shape cross section. Do a google search if you want to find out more.

A hedstrom file is a type of endodontic file.

In brief: File design

There are literally hundreds of different file designs used in endodontics.
A hedstrom is one kind of file. It is a hand-driven file that is unique in its cross section. Other files may differ in their shape (cross section), metal, or could be engine-driven.
