Dental Operating Microscope
We use a surgical operating microscope specifically designed for us in Endodontics. Magnification and hi-intensity fiber optic illumination are helpful in aiding our Endodontists to see intricate details inside your tooth.
Electronic Apex Locator
We use an instrument called an Electronic Apex Locator to aid us in determining the length of the tooth that we are treating. This information helps us to properly clean and seal the canals and potentially reduce the number of x-rays (radiographs) required for treatment.
This instrument is used to selectively remove tooth structure and obstructions such as silver points, posts, and carrier-based fillings from inside the root canal. This along with the microscope allows us to non-surgically retreat many teeth that would have previously been extracted.
Digital Cone Beam CT Scan and Panoramic Radiographs
This x-ray unit gives us 2-D and 3-D images of our patient’s teeth. This provides us with valuable information to help determine the best course of treatment for our patients.
The laser allows us to perform clean and technially sound procedures with optimum tissue healing.
