COMPAMED 2023: Piezoceramics shorten root canal treatments

08.11.2023

When carrying out root canal treatment procedures, dentists need to insert a file deep into the root canal to remove the inflamed tissue. The rotating file often gets jammed and must be cleaned regularly. Researchers have developed a piezoceramic stack actuator that overlays the rotating motion with a vibrating motion.
