Rotary Endo


Rotary Endo at National Dental DouglastonWhen bacteria invade your teeth, the pulp inside becomes infected and inflamed. Moreover, once an infection has taken hold, the only way to remove it, and save your tooth from extraction, is with endodontic treatment. More commonly referred to as a root canal, endodontic treatment removes the infected pulp and disinfects the interior of the affected tooth. Significant pain, and therefore fear, is often associated with endodontic treatment. At National Dental Douglaston, we use rotary endodontics, which is not only a highly effective treatment, it can also alleviate your fears.

What is Endodontic Treatment?

From the outside, your teeth look quite simple. If you were to take a look inside, though, you would see that it is made up of multiple components. The outside of your tooth, or enamel, is the hard, protective layer. Inside, there are hollow channels, pulp, nerves and blood vessels. When bacteria get past the enamel layer, either through tooth decay, gum disease or other damage to the teeth, the pulp becomes infected. Moreover, the only way to remove the infection without removing the tooth is with a root canal.

A root canal (endodontic treatment) involves removing the pulp of an infected tooth and taking measures to protect it from being infected again. After a local anesthetic is given, the top of the tooth is drilled into. The pulp is removed, and the canals shaped. The inside of the tooth is disinfected before being filled and finally capped with a crown.

Rotary Endodontics

In the past, a root canal has been performed with a manual, stainless steel, file. With rotary endodontics, the root canal is performed with electrical tools. We use a handheld tool equipped with a nickel titanium tip, which is up to 5 times more flexible than stainless steel. Thanks to this flexibility, the rotary tool can be inserted into a curved canal without the risk of causing damage, and your procedure will be completed in a shorter amount of time.

Rotary Endodontic Benefits

Rotary endodontics offers several benefits:
•  The electric rotary tool is more reliable than the traditional stainless-steel file. There are much fewer risks for complications as a result of your root canal.
•  The nickel titanium tip makes for a smoother, more consistent cleaning of the canals.
•  With the electric tool, your root canal procedure is completed in less time.
•  The tool is much quieter than the traditional method for root canals.
•  Less fear and anxiety is associated with rotary endodontics. This is due to two factors - a faster procedure, and quieter instruments. The stainless-steel file is notorious for its loud grinding noise, which is often associated with pain. The sound of the rotary tools is nowhere near as loud as the older endodontic tools. You can sit comfortably, and without fear, in the dental chair while we perform your root canal. Moreover, because it takes less time, you will back to your normal schedule with minimal interruption.
