Endodontics refers to root canal therapy, which is a procedure in which damaged and dead dental tissue, nerves, and blood vessels are removed from a decaying or damaged tooth. Rotary endodontics is a modern method of performing root canal therapy that uses specific high-tech electrical handpieces. The electric handpieces, which Dr. Jon C. Bauman has advanced training with, make the root canal operation much faster and more precise than was previously possible.
Electrical rotation allows for an enhanced ability to clean the debris and disease out from the canals of your teeth that manual filing cannot offer. Using the precise instrumentation of rotary electric handpieces also helps to preserve the internal tooth structure while providing excellent cleaning and shaping. The speed with which the electrical handpiece can rotate at is much faster than would be possible by hand, and this allows for procedures to be completed in a fraction of the time it would have taken previously.
