Technologically speaking, endodontics is a rapidly changing field, but we are proud to stay on the cutting edge of the technical advances in endodontics. Our goal is simple: deliver outstanding endodontic care with technology that is effective, efficient and proven. Read more about some of the technical advances we employ in our office below.
We use computerized x-rays, called digital radiography, which produce substantially less radiation exposure than conventional dental x-rays. These digital images can be optimized, archived, printed and sent to other dentists via e-mail or disk.
Surgical Operating Microscopes
We utilize surgical operating microscopes for every procedure. Magnification and fiber optic illumination are helpful in aiding our endodontists to see tiny details inside your tooth and more predictably treat endodontic pathology. Also, a camera on the microscope can record images of your tooth to further document and report findings to your dentist.
Computed Tomography Scan (CT Scan) Imaging
This three-dimensional x-ray allows for enhanced visualization of the internal and external anatomy of the tooth and surrounding structures beneath the gum tissue. These images enable our endodontists to accurately diagnosis endodontic pathology, restorative processes and traumatic injuries.
Different forms of sedation are available in our practice. If you are anxious about having dental work completed, please talk to our doctors at your consultation appointment so that they can determine if you are a good candidate and which treatment option would be best for you.
Ultrasonic instrumentation is utilized for both surgical and non-surgical techniques. For surgery, ultrasonic instruments help minimize the size of the surgical field and assist in cleaning the end of the root. During non-surgical procedures, it is used to remove posts or files and provide acoustic streaming to more thoroughly clean the canals.
