Using 80 percent less radiation than conventional X-rays, digital radiography offers even more benefits than decreased radiation exposure. In addition to safety, digital radiographs provide the convenience of immediately-viewable images. Conventional radiographs require chemical processing which is not only time consuming, but also poses a risk for the environment because of chemical waste. Digital radiography is also a component of our vision of patient education. Projection of the X-ray images on a large monitor allows our doctors to illustrate diagnoses and explain procedures to patients. Additionally, since the radiograph images are digital, they are also easily transferable for referrals to other dentists or providing data to insurance companies for filing claims.
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.
For delicate and complex root canals, enhanced visibility offers more thorough treatment. Non-surgical and surgical endodontics benefit from improved illumination and magnification during these intricate procedures. Using a surgical microscope, our root canal specialists are able to see directly into the root canal system for accurate treatment of the infected tooth. An added benefit is that surgical operating microscopes can also capture images for your records.
