Our Dental Technology
At Pure Endodontics we use cutting-edge dental technology to provide you with safe, fast, and effective results, including:
Dental Operating Microscope
We use surgical operating microscopes in our treatment procedures. The combination of magnification and light allows the doctor to visualize the internal anatomy of the tooth during treatment, enabling her to locate, clean and fill extra canals and spaces which would most likely be missed otherwise.
The microscope can be used in conjunction with ultrasonic instruments to remove calcifications and other blockages which have the potential to make a tooth inoperable. The magnification is also critical in diagnosing the presence of cracks in the tooth structure and determining the extent of a fracture line, which is vital in determining the prognosis of a tooth. Overall, the use of the microscope during endodontic treatment greatly enhances treatment and helps ensure endodontic success.
In the past, most dental professionals had to use the traditional x-ray systems, which require film development. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their many benefits. A digital x-ray is safer and much quicker than its film predecessor. If the image comes out blurry, we can instantly retake a new one. Digital x-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool that helps us gain a better understanding of the inner workings of your mouth, more specifically the teeth, roots, and alveolar bone.
3D imaging gives us a more comprehensive overview of your teeth and gum tissues. This allows us to better diagnose any potential problems and determine the next step in an effective treatment plan.
Cone Beam CT Scan
A cone beam CT scan is a diagnostic tool that produces a 3D representation of your teeth, gums, nerve pathways, and underlying bone structure within a single image. We typically utilize cone beam CT scans when a regular x-ray is not enough. Cone beam CT scans are ideal for diagnosis, surgical planning, evaluation of additional canal anatomy and cracked teeth and the evaluation of bone structure and tooth orientation.
