We take pride in being on the cutting edge when it comes to caring for you. In our practice, this includes use of a dental operating microscope, digital imagery, and electronic apex locators to aid in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up for our patients.
Imaging technology has come a long way. In addition to our two dimensional digital imaging, we have the ability to view your tooth with high resolution 3D imaging (CBCT) to improve our diagnostic process, reducing your time in the dental chair, and increasing the success of root canal procedures. The CBCT can also help identify crack presence and extension, as well as locate hidden canals and extra roots in your teeth.
The Dental Operating Microscope
We utilize a dental operating microscope (DOM) throughout all dental procedures in the office. The DOM allows for endodontic access that minimizes tooth structure removal, allows for identification of complex anatomy, identify problems, such as cracks, and provides you with a more conservative treatment. All of these are important for the long-term survival of your tooth.
Electronic Apex Locator
An electronic apex locator is an instrument that supplements your endodontist, aiding them in determining the true length of each canal in your tooth.
