Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal therapy, is a procedure in which the vascularity (or nerves) of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain.
Rotary endodontics is a method 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. We utilize the latest dental technology to minimize risk of instrument separation and/or root fracture. At River Valley Dental, we use the WaveOne® system from TulsaDental, which means that our endodontic files reciprocate rather than rotate 360 degrees to properly shape and remove damaged tissue from your tooth. Our aim is to make your endodontic/root canal procedure as comfortable as possible. The state-of-the-art endodontics technology we use in our offices helps us to accomplish this goal, and our patients say they notice the difference!
