According to the American Association of Endodontics, up to 40 million root-canal procedures are performed in the U.S. annually. Over the years, the thought of root-canal treatment has caused many patients undue stress and worry about seeing their dentist. A new technological advance has revolutionized the way root canals are done. This new procedure, orascopy, is a technique that uses a micro-fiber optic endoscope, which enables a dentist or endodontist to see inside a tooth, which may result in fewer visits and less anxiety for the patient.
