TECHNOLOGY

[vc_column_text]CARESTREAM 8100 3D
Our practice utilizes in the CS8100 CONE BEAM CT (CBCT) which is a very powerful imaging technology currently available to provide highly accurate 3-D radiographic images.

A dental CBCT (also known as Cone Beam Computerized Technology) is the latest 3-D radiographic extra oral imaging technology, that allows clinicians to view dental anatomy from many different angles. A 3D scan can help gain a better view of bone structures and bone intensity, vital anatomic structures, sinuses, dental infections, root fractures, missing canals and root canal anatomy in general. The cone beam allows the practitioners to obtain the most accurate 3 dimensional image while exposing patients to minimal radiations.

In addition to 3-D images, the CS 8100 machine is also capable of producing very high resolution 2D panoramic images.

DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY
Our office uses digital X-ray sensors instead of traditional films to obtain radiographic images of teeth. This allows the images to appear immediately, which eliminates processing time and chemicals. Having a digital x-ray file allows for more efficient archiving and communication system among dental professionals, as well as insurances and patients. Images taken with digital sensors can be stored in the digital format for years without getting faded or distorted with time, like traditional films will.  Another major advantage of digital radiography is that radiation exposure to the patient is significantly less compared to that of a conventional film. In addition, the image quality of a radiograph taken with digital X-ray sensor is similar in contrast to that of a film, but with less radiation exposure to the patient.

SURGICAL MICROSCOPES
Our office uses dental operating microscopes to treat all endodontic cases. It is the single most important piece of equipment that provides incredible illumination and magnification, allowing for precision of all diagnostic and technical aspects of Endodontics. By using a microscope, an endodontist is able to locate very small and calcified canals, remove broken instruments, repair tooth defects, treat  immature teeth and perform endodontic surgeries. It is one of the most essential armamentarium of any endododontic specialty practice, and we are proud to use Global Surgical Operating Microscopes in our offices.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1405928351152{padding-top: 0px !important;}” bgprecolor=”skin”][vc_column width=”1/3″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
