There have been many new advancements in endodontic technology, making endodontic procedures safe, more efficient and precise. At Advanced Endodontics, our facilities are equipped with the latest new endodontic technology that offers quicker processing, new enhanced visibility and increased patient comfort. Rest assured that our skilled and experienced endodontic team takes full advantage of new technological innovations like these to provide our patients with exceptional, world-class care and comfort!
Our surgical microscope is an amazing technological tool that enables us to completely remove infected patient tissue from inside your tooth. We use this surgical microscope on every root canal we perform to ensure accurate, long lasting treatments. It provides a precise, clear view of the small operating area so we are able to effectively clear, fill, and reseal the tooth. This dental tool has elevated our level of care and helped provide thousands of successful, long-lasting root canals.
Our apex locator enables us to determine the length of your tooth root. This endodontic technology tool measures resistance and impedance of the dental root to provide us with enough information to accurately determine where the root canal space ends. Because of the accuracy of the apex locator, we don’t need to take as many radiographs to perform a successful, informed procedure.
3D CONE BEAM CT SCAN
A 3D Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (3D CBCT) is an amazing, specialized type of radiography that provides more information than conventional dental or facial radiographs. This computerized dental scan uses a motorized arm that rotates 360-degrees around your head while capturing multiple images from different angles that are then reconstructed to generate three-dimensional (3D) images.
This allows for a more precise dental diagnosis and provides 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone which are considerably more detailed than conventional two-dimensional dental radiographs. CBCT scans are commonly used in the office to evaluate the position of teeth, bone structure, jaw joints, the airway, or to aid in the accurate placement of implants, surgical planning, orthodontic evaluations, and complex root canal diagnosis. It can show us exactly which root has an infection, as well as the location of canal orifices, if it exists. With this endodontic technology we can also help us identify root resorption, internal or external, and the location of such resorption.
Digital radiography has enabled us to reduce radiation in our dental office by more than 80%. This technology renders digital versions of your x-rays and enables us to zoom in and inspect abnormalities in great detail before we begin performing your root canal.
One of the biggest fears about root canal treatment is the initial pain of anesthetic injection. We have a dental solution for that. The DentalVibe technology provides gentle vibration at the site of the injection, this movement confuses the brain and distorts your perception of discomfort. Further, the vibration helps to disperse the anesthesia, which helps it work even faster. Before you know it, you’ll be numb and on your way home from the office with a healthy smile.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
If you’re anxious about your endodontic treatment, our office offers nitrous oxide sedation, or laughing gas, to help calm your nerves. If you are interested, we’ll go over your medical history to make sure nitrous oxide sedation is a good option to help comfort you during your endodontic procedure.
Movies and music have a way of calming anxiety and distracting fear. We have a wide selection of movies and music for you to watch and listen to while we perform your root canal. Because it’s all about your comfort, we can also stream your movies and music during your endodontic procedure.
