Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
Root canal treatment is usually a highly successful procedure.
Rotary endodontics is a new method of endodontic therapy that utilizes an electric handpiece instead of manual files. Because rotary endodontics uses an electric headpiece, the procedure can be completed more efficiently and with a better result.
