Cone Beam CT
Our practice utilises state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of endodontic disease. This allows three-dimensional visualisation 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.
Township Endodontic Centre carefully chooses which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs (i.e. x-rays) allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyse the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumours, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Township Endodontic Centre utilises Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90% less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities sooner.
Digital x-rays allows us to store patient images, enabling us to quickly and easily transfer them to your dentist’s office or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light.
A digital x-ray only exposes you to
a 6th of the amount of radiation
of a typical film radiograph
The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionised the field of Endodontic Microsurgery. We have invested in our digital microscope. It provides unparalleled magnification and illumination for both our non-surgical and surgical procedures.
The better you can see it
The better you can fix it
Our success depends on being able to see the minutest of details. As they say endodontics is a big issue about a little tissue. Often that tissue is of microscope proportions deep in the root of your tooth.
instruments & irrigation
We use the most advanced instruments and irrigation systems available for modern endodontics to allow us to help us save more teeth more often. If a job is worth doing it is worth doing right and that takes using the right tools, equipment, supplies in an efficient and effective manner. Studies show modern endodontics performed by endodontists has the greatest chance of saving even the most infected or damaged tooth.
