Root canal therapy, sometimes called root canal treatment or endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure that eliminates infection from inside a tooth. If you’re experiencing increased teeth sensitivity, dental pain, and swollen or tender gums, you may require root canal therapy. Unexplained darkening of the tooth is yet another indicator of the need for root canal treatment.
Here at Daily Dental & Braces Bar, we know that root canals are often a scary prospect for many. That’s why we have invested in the WaveOne™ endodontic unit that allows us to perform painless and comfortable root canal treatments.
The WaveOne™ reciprocating endodontic unit is a highly innovative addition to endodontic treatments. This unit ensures accuracy and precision during root canal treatments. Our dentist will reshape your root canals with impressive precision with just a single file, resulting in less chair time and significant treatment success.
What to Expect
Our dentist starts by performing a thorough evaluation to understand your needs. For this step, the dentist takes dental x-rays to gather in-depth insights relating to the health of your affected tooth. For irreparable teeth, our dentist may recommend extraction.
Next, our dentist administers appropriate anesthesia to guarantee your comfort during the procedure. The dentist uses the WaveOne reciprocating endodontic unit to access your root canals and remove all infection. The unit features different types and sizes of files that are utilized depending on the size and curvature of the patient’s root canals. The single-use rotary file allows for a precise reshaping of the canals, after which the dentist seals the canals with dental material.
Benefits of WaveOne Endodontic Unit
Some of the benefits of the WaveOne endodontic unit include:
- Only one instrument is required per root canal
- Decreases reshaping time, thus allowing the dentist to focus on cleaning and irrigating the canals
- It’s a single-use unit, which eliminates the risk of cross-contamination
Thanks to the WaveOne endodontic unit, root canals aren’t as scary as they used to be. If you’re struggling with decay or other types of damage, sign up for a painless root canal treatment by calling Daily Dental & Braces Bar.
