Cone Beam Computed Tomography:

The addition of Cone-beam computed tomography gives our practice state-of-the-art technology to help diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with confidence. Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT) systems. Cone beam computed tomography is an innovative medical imaging technique that provides endodontists with three-dimensional views of the patient. In certain cases, CBCT greatly enhances the endodontist’s ability to diagnose, evaluate, treat and care for patients.

During a CBCT scan, the machine rotates around the patient, capturing images using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These images are then used to construct a 3-D representation of the patient’s teeth, oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw and neck), and ears, nose and throat.

Operating Microscope:

Operating microscope technology enables us to visualize high-contrast images illustrating minute details and fine structures. The illumination puts light where it is needed. Even root canals are illuminated and imaged. The additional magnification and illumination allow us to work with great precision and see small details such as calcified canals and fractures. Most important: better vision is the key to improving the quality of the examination and the treatment.

Digital Imaging:

We also utilize digital imaging which reduces the typical amount of radiation used in conventional dental x-ray services by up to 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster, can be viewed on a computer screen and have improved diagnostic capability.
