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.
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.
