Advanced Technology

Cone Beam CT

Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of endodontic disease. This allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular dental x-rays). With the addition of cone-beam CT technology to our office, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality, patient care.

Digital Imaging

Specialized Endodontic Solutions carefully chooses which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.

Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Specialized Endodontic Solutions utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.

Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.

Digital X-Rays:

Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.

Surgical Microscopes

The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontic Microsurgery. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes, by Carl Zeiss, that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical procedures.

Our success depends on us being able to see the minutest of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see. In addition, we have incorporated the latest high definition video allowing us to record our procedures with unequalled clarity and detail.

GentleWave

This is the revolutionary alternative to the standard root canal procedure.

The GentleWave System’s technology uses acoustic sound waves and advanced fluid dynamics to flush away debris and tissue from your entire root canal system. It dissolves organic tissue up to 7x faster than conventional devices, even cleaning microscopic spaces that can’t be reached by standard root canal treatments.

Instead of relying on multiple instruments to clean the root canal system, the GentleWave System uses a sterilized single-use instrument to deliver broad spectrum acoustic energy and a powerful vortex of optimized procedure fluids throughout the canals. Many patients describe the GentleWave Procedure as very comfortable, especially patients who have previously undergone a standard root canal treatment. Some have even said they were able to fall asleep during the treatment.

With the GentleWave Procedure being 97% effective, most procedures are not only 1 visit, but it effectively limits the amount of post treatment pain.
