What New Technologies are Being Used?

Our specialty practice is committed to excellence and using state-of-the-art technology to enhance patient care.

Our surgical suite equipped with dental operating microscopes, which allows power adjustments for focus, zoom, focal length, and intensity of the Zenon light source. An ASI dental unit also complete with air-driven high and low speeds fiber optic handpieces, electric rotary motor, ultrasonics, system B, obtura, dual micro irrigators, micro air syringes, and curing light.

  • Digital X-rays: By using computerized digital x-rays, we can reduce the radiation to our patients by almost 90%. A comfortable sensor pad is used, instead of film, to capture an instant on screen image, which means shorter appointments for our patients. Because they’re digital, these x-rays can be enhanced by the computer for improved visualization and diagnosis. A printed report, with these x-rays is sent to your dentist after your visit with us.

  • Microscope: In addition to digital radiography, we utilize special operating microscopes. Magnification (up to 25X) and Zenon illumination are helpful in aiding the doctor to see tiny details inside your tooth including but not limited to fracture, isthmus, separated instrument, calcify canals and intra-coronal decay. Hence, a better and more accurate diagnosis can be provided. Also, a tiny video camera on the operating microscope can record images of your tooth to further document the doctor's finding. This results in better dental evaluation and treatment decisions.

  • Digital Imaging: The OPMI PROergo microscope from Carl Zeiss is equipped with a high-resolution 3-chip video camera, which can record images of your tooth to further document the doctor’s finding. These pictures and video can be sent to your dentist for increased communication of your specific needs.

  • Apex Locator: This device helps to precisely measure the length of the tooth’s roots electronically for complete cleaning of the tooth. Due to its high accuracy, it reduces the number of x-rays normally needed during the procedure. Used along with digital x-rays, this device lowers patient radiation exposure even further.

  • Nickel-Titanium Rotary Instruments: The degree of cleaning and shaping determines the success of root canal therapy. Along with liquid antimicrobial agent, nickel-titanium hand and rotary files are used to maximize the removal of the harmful bacteria within the root canal system.

  • Ultrasonics: An Alternative to the Drill - Instead of using a drill inside your tooth, this device vibrates a diamond coated metal tip at high frequency. It is most commonly being used in root end surgery and non-surgical re-treatment. Because it is very small, it can be used under the microscope for precise removal of small amounts of tooth or fillings allowing for conservative treatment of your tooth.
