What if root canals were painless and stress-free?
OK, maybe there is not such a thing, but a new technology in endodontics is making the root canal experience more efficient and more comfortable for patients. Rotary endodontics involves the use of an electric-powered drill that has a nickel titanium tip that makes drilling easier because the tip is more flexible than the traditional stainless-steel files.
During a root canal procedure, infected roots and nerves inside the tooth are removed. The pulp, or roots and nerves, are removed because the infection is 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.
