In order to aid us in the diagnosis and treatment of complex endodontic cases , our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) that provides highly accurate 3D radiographic images. This allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses, and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, allowing a level of anatomic accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular x-rays).
Our CBCT system provides us with 3-D 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.
The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontic Microsurgery. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes, by Carl Zeiss, that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical and non-surgical procedures.
Our success depends on us being able to see the most minute of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see. In addition, we have incorporated the latest high definition photography and video allowing us to capture photos and record our procedures with unequaled clarity and detail.
