Root Canal Treatments
We know that the right tools and equipment can play a significant part in the success and longevity of a root canal. Upon arrival at our office, you will be able to see some of these advanced tools that we use to improve the results of root canal therapy. Here are some of the tools we use.
Computerized Digital Radiography
We have advanced x-ray equipment that doesn’t require film, which reduces the patient to exposure to radiation while also protecting our dental staff from being exposed to film chemicals. These digital x-ray files are easily enlarged, and we can archive, print, and forward to other doctors when necessary.
Electronic Apex Locators
Tooth length can vary significantly. We have electronic apex locators that will enable us to determine a tooth’s exact length. These tools allow us to minimize x-rays and procedure times. Additionally, it improves practitioner accuracy when performing root canals.
Sonic and Ultrasonic Equipment
Cleaning the canals at your tooth base is a critical part a root canal procedure. We have instruments that use sonic and ultrasonic energy to thoroughly and meticulously eliminate bacteria residing in the canals.
