More efficient equipment quickens root canals
Imagine a root canal that is painless and stress free!
OK, maybe there isn’t such a thing, but a new technology in endodontics is making the root canal experience more comfortable and efficient for the patient. Rotary endodontics involves the use of a electric-powered drill that uses a nickel titanium tip that is more flexible than traditional stainless steel files.
The root canal is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. The pulp of the tooth is removed because it is infected and causing pain.
Rotary endodontics utilizes an electrical handpiece that allows the dentist to perform the root canal quicker and with less discomfort for the patient.
