Rotary endodontics is new technology to treat root canals
Is it possible that someday root canals would be painless and stress free? Perhaps with the help of rotary endodontics, it is.
Dental technology inches closer to that goal each day, with a new technology in endodontics making the root canal experience more efficient and more comfortable for patients. Rotary endodontics involves the use of a electric-powered drill that has a nickel titanium tip that makes drilling easier. The nickel titanium tip is more flexible than the traditional stainless steel files, which makes procedures faster and more comfortable for patients.
During a root canal, infected roots and nerves inside the tooth are removed. The pulp, or roots and nerves, are removed because the infection is creating pain and could lead to additional mouth and gum conditions.
