Endodontic procedures (such as root canal treatments) require a range of special instruments. Because of the length and size of the roots of many of our patients, dedicated veterinary instruments are required. Over the years Bob Partridge has explored a huge variety of mechanical aides to cleaning and preparing root canals. A new system from iM3 does seem to have many advantages. One of the most important factors in achieving a successful root canal treatment is the chemical sterilisation of the pulp chamber. Heating the cleaning fluids dramatically increases their efficiency – so VetDentist has been using water bath heaters for many years.
