Successful Endodontic cases have improved greatly with the aid of technology. Our office is committed to implementing proven technologies into everyday treatment in an effort to maximize positive outcomes.
The implementation of the surgical microscope has changed Endodontic treatment forever. You can only treat what you can see, and the optics of the scope allow visualization of detail and fine structures. You will notice there is no dental lights in our operatories, because the illumination comes from within the scope itself. This coaxial illumination puts light where it is needed and effectively illuminates even into canals.
Digital 3D Panoramic and Cephalometric Imaging (CBCT)
Exceptional clarity with low exposure. Through advanced engineering the intensity of the x-rays has been optimized which decreases the overall level of emissions. Dosage has been reduced 30% to 40% on all three-dimensional fields of view. Our machine only takes a limited field of view which also help with lowered emissions. This tool aids in diagnosis and treatment and will be implemented when necessary.
Radiation exposure is always a concern to patients. Our digital x-rays emit 80% to 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays, and the results aid Dr. Chapman in diagnosing and treating your specific tooth. Digital also is manipulative, meaning we can zoom, contrast, measure and share images instantly. This is helpful in communicating and educating the patient as well as your general dentist.
We have a lot of other tools in our office that aid in diagnosis, treatment and overall comfort for each and every patient and we continue to seek out technology tools to provide the best possible outcome.
