Endodontic therapy provides a predictable method to retain most teeth. The evolution of treatment has been greatly influenced by new technologies, and we have available to us many new devices and methods to make your care comfortable and successful. However, it is very important to remember that choosing the appropriate instruments and techniques for your treatment is why our years of clinical experience are so important.

Digital Radiography  

This technology utilizes sensors that instantly transmit the radiographic image of your tooth directly onto an operatory computer monitor. This system lowers the already low dosage radiation needed to take a conventional film by more than 90%. Because these images are digital, they can be enlarged and enhanced to help in the diagnosis and treatment of your tooth. These images are archived in your dental record, and can also be emailed to your referring doctor.  


Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)

The offices have cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) machines which allow us to see teeth in 3 Dimensions. We can diagnose infections and other anomalies that cannot be clearly detected by regular radiographs. The CBCT is also instrumental for treatment planning surgical Endodontic cases, acting as a guide for treatment.

Operating Microscopes  

In addition to digital radiography, we utilize special operating microscopes. Magnification and fiber optic illumination are helpful in aiding the doctor to see tiny details inside your tooth. 

Apex Locators

These are instruments that can electronically help determine where the end, or terminus, of the root is located. This is most critical in successful Endodontic therapy.

Nickel-Titanium Instruments  

These instruments have helped to revolutionize Endodontics. They have greater flexibility than standard stainless instruments, allowing more efficient cleaning and shaping of the canals. These instruments are able to follow the different curves and bends that are encountered. This will allow for more complete removal of bacteria and any debris that accumulates in canals.
