Irrigation Delivery System
While many different irrigation techniques have emerged over the last decade, one technique has emerged as the most effective and safest of them all – EndoVac Apical Negative Pressure Irrigation.
The EndoVac was designed to pull irrigant down into the root canal and then up and away into a Hi-Vac suction unit. This process is called "negative apical pressure" becuase EndoVac applies suction rather than forceful positive pressure into the root canal. This approach allows us to consistently deliver a high level of endodontic care in White Plains and Mt. Kisco, NY to each of our patients.
The Traditional Root Canal Irrigation Method
Traditional endodontic irrigation involved the use of a syringe filled with sodium hypochlorite that was carefully put into the root canal and then injected using positive pressure. However, the method is not without drawbacks and there are no current positive pressure application techniques that are deemed completely dependable for safety and results.
The New Technology
EndoVac in White Plains and Mt. Kisco, NY now circulates sodium hypochlorite using apical negative pressure to safely pull irrigant deep into the canal without the risk of accidents. EndoVac allows our doctors to successfully disinfect the entire root canal system so pain-inducing bacteria are destroyed more quickly and effectively than traditional methods. As a result, patients experience much more comfortable and effective root canals without the danger of accidents or retreatment.
