New advances in fluid dynamics and laser energy have resulted in devices which are better able to clean and disinfect the root canal system. Our office is committed to utilizing the newest and most advanced technologies available which provide better outcomes and help preserve the natural tooth structure.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a game changer in endodontics. This device allows our office to acquire a 3D X-ray of the area we are treating to better diagnose and treat the condition. Armed with the knowledge of what, where, and why the problem exists, we can accurately and conservatively fix the problem with fewer X-rays and a more predictable outcome.
Microscopes are crucial to identifying and treating the root canal system. They provide a level of precision during treatment that helps save natural tooth structure. Each microscope is equipped with LED illuminators and has up to 19x magnification. A high-definition camera is attached which allows for photo and video capture to better educate our patients and communicate with our referring dentists.
Conserving natural tooth structure is key to a successful root canal treatment. Ultrasonic instruments allow for precise removal of tooth structure only where necessary to clean the root canal system. These instruments vibrate over 30,000 times per second to gently smooth and polish inside the tooth.
Material selection is important to ensure that the body is allowed to heal and returns to a normally functioning state. Bioceramic materials are designed to mimic natural tissues within the body to allow for a healthy interface between the body and the root canal system.
Dental anxiety is a common condition which can create a steep barrier to dental care. We specialize in alleviating anxiety and providing a relaxing and calming appointment. Our office offers oral sedation and nitrous oxide to patients who need a little extra help feeling comfortable. If you are interested, be sure to ask about this option when scheduling your appointment.
Patient safety is of the upmost importance in our office. We utilize the most stringent sterilization protocols to properly clean and disinfect all dental equipment. In addition, our staff is trained and follows all OSHA and CDC recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
