In order to better assess the need for root canal treatment, and more easily view potential issues that lie beneath the surface, we use digital dental radiographs (x-rays). Utilization of digital radiography enhances our ability to diagnose, establish accurate treatment plans and ensure proper outcome.

We generally only take 1-3 x-rays during treatment. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment or have questions, please contact our office in Vienna, VA at 703-938-5920.
In order to aid us in the diagnosis and treatment of complex endodontic cases we utilize the most up to date radiographic imaging techniques including 3-D Cone-beam-computed tomography (CBCT).
Our CBCT system provides us with 3D images of several teeth with approximately the same radiation dose as two normal radiographs.
Use of CBCT has proven to be priceless in providing our patients with the best possible treatment.
