Here at Dr. Ambus’s practice, he is proud to offer an approach to smoother, more comfortable procedures when conducting root canal procedures. He uses rotary endodontic technology to assist with the treatment of a root canal. There are several advantages to using rotary endodontic treatment over traditional root canal therapy, and it all starts with the tools.
Instead of using traditional manual files and stainless-steel instruments to treat a root canal, Rotary endodontics employs electrically-powered instruments to perform treatment on root canals. The hand tool Dr. Ambus uses is equipped with a tip made of nickel titanium. This material is 5 times more flexible than stainless steel.
Due to the flexibility, the nickel-titanium instrument is able to perform unique movements that allow the tool to insert deeply into a curved root canal without damaging or stretching the passageway. This allows a more reliable procedure to be done in a quicker manner.
