The use of advanced technologies helps our endodontists provide the best possible care. These include:
Cone beam computer tomography (CBCT)
Similar to medical “CT” scans, these images allow us to visualize your tooth and jaw in 3-D. However, instead of hundreds of radiation impulses to capture the 3-D image as in CT scans, our machine makes one pulse that is reconfigured to produce a 3-D image, which decreases radiation by approximately 90%.
The advantages of this technology, the most important of which is a greatly improved success rate for your endodontic treatment, have led to our use of CBCTs as part of our standard of care for all patients.
We use special microscopes with magnification and fiber optic illumination that help our doctors see tiny details inside your tooth. A small video camera on the operating microscope can record images of your tooth to further document the doctor’s findings.
