Rotary endodontics is a technology tht helps make the root canal experience more comfortable and efficient for dental patients.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal treatment, or endodontic therapy is the removal of the infected pulp from the inner root canals of the tooth. After the infected pulp is removed, the root canals are cleaned, shaped and then sealed. After a root canal is completed a crown is required to protect the tooth from cracking.
Rotary endodontics involve an electrically-powered instrument which helps in the cleaning and shaping of the root during the treatment process. It replaces the traditional stainless-steel manual files.
The file instrument used in the electric handpiece is made from nickel titanium – a material that is five times more flexible than traditional stainless steel. The flexibility makes the rotary root canal process more efficient. The instrument can be inserted deeply into a curved root canal without stretching or damaging the passageway.
