Endodontic therapy provides a predictable method to retain most teeth. The evolution of treatment has been greatly influenced by new technologies. We have available to us many of the latest devices and methods to make your care comfortable and successful.
This technology utilizes sensors that instantly transmit the radiographic image of your tooth directly onto an operatory computer monitor. This system lowers the already low dosage radiation needed to take a conventional film by over 90%. Because these images are digital, they can be enlarged and enhanced to help in the diagnosis and treatment of your tooth. These images are archived in your dental record, and can also be e-mailed to your referring doctor.
In addition to digital radiography, we utilize special operating Global microscopes. Magnification and fiber optic illumination are helpful in aiding the doctor to see minute details inside your tooth.
These are instruments that can electronically help determine where the end, or terminus, of the root is located. This is most critical in successful endodontic therapy.
These devices help in locating canals, removing obstructions from canals and in cleaning canals.
These instruments have helped to revolutionize endodontics. They have greater flexibility than the standard stainless instruments, allowing more efficient cleaning and shaping of the canals. These instruments are able to follow the different curves and bends that are encountered. This will allow for more complete removal of bacteria and any debris that accumulates in canals.
Cone Beam CT
Lawrence Endodontics is fortunate to have access to Cone Beam CT, a powerful three dimensional (3D) imaging system.
Periapical and panoramic radiography have been augmented by the recent introduction of high-resolution cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), allowing 3D assessment of oral lesions, root canal morphology, re-treatment cases and root fractures.
The KODAK 9300 3D System provides the ability to take powerful three dimensional (3D) digital images, while using no more radiation than traditional two dimensional (2D) film x-rays. The unit captures high-quality images and allows our practice to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in the office, helping reduce multiple visits and rescheduling, saving our patients time and money.
Viewing an unprecedented level of anatomical detail helps practitioners diagnose more accurately and treat with confidence.
The highest resolution imaging capabilities provided by this unit will enable clinicians to detect problems with more accuracy. This breakthrough technology provides unprecedented x-ray views of the oral cavity.
