Rotary Endodontics

Originally developed for military purposes, advanced nickel-titanium alloy has found a place in dentistry. Flexible nickel-titanium rotary files are now used to increase the quality of root canals, allowing a dentist or endodontist to accurately follow the shape of the root canal itself. Using a passive, non-cutting tip, nickel-titanium rotary files gently remove the infected inner tooth (the pulp) and generally result in more precise and less painful root canals.
