Digital Radiographs

The use of digital radiographs can reduce your exposure to xrays by 80-90 percent.

The images are instantly viewed on a computer screen with remarkable definition.

Surgical Microscope

In our office, we use a Surgical Operating Microscopes. They provide enhanced visualization of the endodontic access or surgical area up to 25 times. This is especially beneficial for accurate visualization of complex anatomy cases, for locating root fractures or defects, for root-end surgery, for removal of separated instruments, and for locating canals.

Nickel Titanium Rotary Instruments

Nickel Titanium has the unique features of flexibility and shape memory. The instruments are used to clean and shape the inside of the canal. Previous stainless steel instruments had the tendency to break and could not take a curve to follow the shape of the canal, so it was difficult to clean the canal completely. Nickel Titanium is 500 times more flexible, so even canals that are sharply curved can be thoroughly cleaned and shaped. Using these instruments routinely, allow us not only to be more effective, but also to work faster and more quietly.

Electric Handpieces

New electric handpieces are virtually silent. This significantly reduces the anxiety of our patients. These handpieces are designed to be used exclusively with nickel titanium rotary instruments during root canal treatment.

Electronic Apex Locators

It is important for the success of root canal therapy to clean and fill to the very end of the root, without extending beyond or being short. The electronic apex locator aids in measuring the length of the canal by determining accurate position of the apical constriction through a resistance force.

CBCT

Cone Beam Computed Technology may be ordered in a case where a 3-dimensional view of the tooth and jaw is needed.
