What is Endodontics?
The official term for root canal therapy is endodontics. During this treatment, the roots (or nerves) of the infected tooth are completely removed. Infected roots can cause incredible pain.
What is Rotary Endodontics?
For many decades, root canal therapy required the dentist to use a series of increasingly larger files to completely remove the root from the canal of the tooth. It was painstaking and time consuming. Rotary endodontics makes use of a convenient electrical hand piece to make the process much faster and less painful. The use of rotary endodontics offers several advantages:
- The procedure is more reliable about removing all of the root tissue. It offers fewer chances of difficulties and complications due to an incomplete root removal.
- Rotary endodontics provide a faster, quieter, smoother procedure for the patient.
- The convenience provided by rotary endodontics provides a much less intimidating experience for the patient.
