CBCT – Cone Beam Computed Tomography
Cone Beam Computed Tomography is an exciting new technology that allows us to three-dimensionally examine teeth, their roots and surrounding structures while limiting our patients exposure to radiation. CBCT imaging allows us to detect abnormalities in the teeth and surrounding structures that are not normally visible when using standard two-dimensional radiography, facilitating a more precise diagnosis and treatment.
Digital radiography (x-ray) allows us to view images of your teeth almost instantly, while limiting your exposure to radiation. Digital radiography also allows us to enhance and enlarge images enabling us to more precisely diagnose and treat your specific condition.
Surgical Operating Microscopes
All of our offices are equipped with surgical operating microscopes which allow our Doctors to visualize anatomical structures that would otherwise remain hidden and more difficult to treat. The microscopes also allow our Doctors to examine teeth for the presence of problems such as calcification, cracks or canal obstructions.
Ultrasonic instrumentation allows our Doctors to access and treat root canals that would be difficult if not impossible to treat otherwise. These instruments allow us to more conservatively treat calcified canals, to remove posts or other canal obstructions and to perform apical micro-surgery.
Electonic Apex Locators
We commonly utilize electronic apex locators which can minimize the number of x-rays needed to complete root canal treatment.
