When most people think of the phrase “root canal,” they immediately think of pain. But thanks to technology, the process of getting a root canal is far more pleasant than was possible even a few years ago.
What is Rotary Endodontics?
Rotary endodontics is basically another way of saying a root canal. Endodontics is a field of dentistry focused on treating problems that affect the inside of a tooth. We use electrically powered instruments to perform root canals, rather than traditional equipment. Older equipment takes much longer to use and causes a great deal more discomfort.
How Patients Benefit
We’ve already mentioned the most important benefits already – increased comfort and faster procedures. But there are other significant advantages as well. Advanced technology allows a dentist to be more precise than ever before when performing a root canal. Because the procedure is more reliable, it greatly reduces the chances that any complications can occur in the future.
The equipment is also much quieter. A major part of the discomfort involved in traditional root canals is the loud, grinding noise that old equipment makes. Today’s technology makes that a thing of the past.
