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, it can be inserted deeply into a curved root canal without stretching or damaging the passageway. This makes for a quick and reliable procedure.
Our consultant Dr Pooja Sathe prefers using rotary endodontic methods over manual root canal treatments for several reasons, outlined below.
Although using a manual file will still clean out the root canals thoroughly, most dentists and patients prefer rotary endodontics. In fact, it was largely the loud grinding of manual files that gave root canal therapy the reputation of being a "scary" or "undesirable" procedure. With rotary endodontics, patients feel much more comfortable during the treatment and barely notice the whirring of the tools.
