Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Beavercreek Endodontics utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to your dentist, other dental specialists or insurance companies. We are also able to see images more precisely, as they are viewed on a computer monitor.
ULtRASONIC TECHNIQUESOnce your tooth has been properly cleaned and shaped, we use ultrasonic irrigation to thoroughly disinfect the canal system. We can also use ultrasonic instrumentation to access calcified canals, and to remove posts and broken instruments.
The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of endodontics. We have invested in quality microscopes that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our treatment procedures. Our success depends on us being able to see the smallest of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see. We use surgical microscopes during all phases of surgical and non-surgical treatment.
Cone Beam CT
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides high resolution 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of endodontic disease. When necessary, the Carestream 8100 3D unit allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular dental x-rays). With the addition of cone-beam CT technology to our office, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality patient care.
