Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain. Placing someone on antibiotics will not get into the tooth where the infection is so it will not cure a tooth that needs a root canal.
Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific electrical handpiece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease. Dr. Huigens has been using this technique for a number of years and has had great success with doing root canals.
