What is rotary endodontics OR Rotary RCT?
Rotary RCT is a novel approach to cleaning the root canals of a tooth. It is done with the help of specialized motor driven equipment. Earlier it had to be done manually.
- Rotary RCT procedure uses special files made of Ni-Ti (Nickel – Titanium) which are highly flexible.
- These pass easily along the curved path of the canals while cleaning. Each tooth can have anywhere from one to four (or more) canals.
- The motorized equipment is more efficient in cleaning the canals while at the same time, retaining the original path of the canals which is essential to achieve the best results.
They give a conical form to the canals. This form is required for canal irrigants to reach the apical area of the root and also in the placement of filling material into the canal.
Rotary RCT procedure demands less time, is more accurate and more comfortable for the patients.
