Our offices utilize cone beam computed tomography (or CBCT), which offers extensive information in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning of conventional and surgical endodontic therapy. In comparison to two-dimensional radiography, a three-dimensional rendition offers the clinician an undistorted view of the affected tooth that can be used to accurately visualize tooth orientations and anamalous structures, in addition to providing greater insight into complex radicular configurations and root canal systems. The CBCT is invaluable in diagnosis, locating missed and calcified canals, and identifying root fractures.
LASER assist root canal therapy provides outstanding Cleaning, Debridement and Disinfection by removing infected tissue, biofilm and smear layer killing up to 99% of bacteria commonly found in the root canal. Less than 5% of Endodontist uses LASER Technology.
The Microscope provides 400 times more visual accuracy than the naked eye and 100 times the visual information than traditional dental loupes. Magnification improves accuracy of tooth preparations and margins preventing damage to adjacent teeth and connective tissue during all kinds of dental operations and surgery.
Radiographs (x-rays) are an essential part of quality endodontic therapy. Our offices utilize an advanced non-film dental imaging system known as CDR (computed dental radiography). The already low radiation required for dental radiographs is further reduced by over 80% compared to conventional film. Using this system, an electronic sensor produces computerized radiographs which appear instantly on a chairside computer screen. These images can then be optimized, printed, archived indefinitely and sent to your dentist.
Our office employs the use of CCD/CID/CMOS sensors to produce direct digital images. Direct digital radiography has many advantages over silver halide film, such as speed, reduced radiation, environmental waste reduction, elimination of darkroom costs, and lossless e-mail image transfer and documentation.
