Rotary Endodontics

Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal treatment, is a procedure where the nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain.

Rotary endodontics employs electrically-powered instruments to perform the root canal treatment rather than traditional stainless-steel manual files. The electric hand tool is equipped with a tip constructed out of nickel titanium – a material that is five times more flexible than stainless steel.

Due to the flexibility and unique movement of the nickel-titanium instrument, the files can be inserted deeply into a curved root canal without stretching or damaging the passageway. This makes for a quick and reliable procedure.

Advantages of Rotary Endodontics:

The nickel titanium cleans out the root canal much more smoothly and consistently.
Rotary endodontic procedures are more reliable with less chance of complications.
Rotary tools make the root canal procedure much faster.
The electric tools are much quieter and smoother, without the loud grinding that accompanies manual files.
The fast treatment time, in conjunction with quieter instruments, make for a much more comfortable and less frightening experience for patients.
