Our office is equipped with microscopes specially designed for use in endodontics. Magnification and fiber optic illumination are used to assist in performing the technical aspects of the endodontic treatment. The microscope is equipped with a high-resolution video camera so that the assistant can view and follow the procedure on a video monitor. Often patients also watch, finding the treatment an interesting and pleasant experience. 

Digital Radiography

Our office has equipped each treatment room with Schick Digital Radiography. Digital radiography utilizes an intraoral sensor in place of conventional x-ray film. The radiographic image is converted into an electronic signal, interpreted by computer, and displayed instantly onto the TV monitor. Digital radiography reduces radiation exposure up to 90%, decreases the time spent in treatment, and provides us with improved endodontic diagnostic capabilities through image enhancement computer technology. 

Digital Microvideography

Digital microvideography enables us to record pictures of the treatment area and then use this image to explain the treatment to the patient, send the picture to the patient’s dentist, and store the image in the patient’s record.
