"Today is a great day for a root canal"
Several remarkable endodontic advancements in the last few years alone, have made saving your tooth more comfortable, thorough, and predictable than ever. We take pride in continuing to practice on the leading edge of technology and offering our patients the very best treatment available anywhere.
Sonendo Gentlewave is state-of-the-art technology that uses advanced fluid dynamics and soundwaves to completely clean and disinfect even the most complex canal anatomy. This incredible system accomplishes this while simultaneously allowing us to conserve more of your tooth structure, resulting in a cleaner, yet stronger tooth. With the Gentlewave, we have been able to save teeth that otherwise would have needed to be extracted. Click here to learn more.
Cone Beam CT
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) allows us to see through anatomical structures in 3-dimensions and has proven to be an invaluable tool in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of endodontic scenarios. Canals, anatomical structures, and infectious lesions that are not visible with standard 2-dimensional x-rays are often seen clearly with CBCT. CBCT can be valuable in helping to identify teeth where treatment is needed that would otherwise go undetected. It is also extremely valuable in identifying cases where treatment would be predestined to failure. This has saved countless patients from wasting time, money, and hope on a lost cause.
Surgical Operating Microscopes
Operating Microscopes are used throughout every treatment to ensure that treatment is safe, precise, and thorough. "The scope" is an absolutely essential piece of equipment in endodontic treatment as one cannot treat what they cannot see.
Ultrasonic instruments are small instruments that allow for very careful and controlled removal of tooth structure. Ultrasonic instruments are routinely used in combination with the operating microscope and CBCT scans to safely locate tiny hidden canals, which are otherwise untreatable.
High standards of asepsis and sterilization are adhered to in our office. One such example is our Sterilox generator, which is an FDA approved system that is used to destroy and prevent the formation of biofilms in dental treatment water lines. The Sterilox ensures that water used during treatment is completely safe and free of micro-organisms that typically inhabit water lines. This allows our water quality to dramatically exceed standards set by forth by the Centers for Disease Control.
Digital radiography is used instead of conventional x-rays resulting in substantially less radiation exposure and more efficient treatment. Images are available instantly and do not reuire the environmentally harmful chemicals to develop. CBCT scans also use digital radiogrpahy and require only a tiny fraction of the exposure of a medical CT scan
Secure Server and Patient Information
We use TDO Software as we believe that it is the best endodontic software available. Created by a visionary endodontist, the features of TDO are endless, and the secure server is regularly backed up to ensure all patient information is protected. TDO technology allows documentation to be more thorough and allows us to communicate more effectively with both patients and referring doctors.
