Cone Beam Scanner

CS 8100 3D Cone BeamOur practice is one of the first endodontic specialty practice in Southern California to employ this high resolution radiographic technology.  Cone Beam technology provides a digital tomographic 3D view of the patient’s area of interest.  A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional.  With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas.  The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Digital X-ray

Schick 33 Digital SensorDigital X-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays. We use state of the art HD sensors that give sharper images with less exposure to the patient.The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film. Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care. It’s also a very green technology. By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment.This technology also allows for secure electronic transfer of medical information to our patient’s co-therapists.

 

 

Microscopes and Imaging

The use of specialized operating microscopes means that the doctor is able to get a detailed look at the work they are doing during all phases of your endodontic treatment.  The additional magnification and illumination allow them to work with great precision and see small details such as calcified canals and fractures.  The Endodontist is able to more accurately diagnose and treat the patient using a dental surgical microscope to improve the potential outcome of the treatment from “good” to “excellent”.  Further, some microscopes may be equipped with high resolution video and digital photography allowing the doctor to enhance patient communication and document treatment.

Electronic Medical Records (EMR)

Using Electronic Medical Records, our practice is able to quickly and accurately access patient information in order to provide the utmost in patient care.  This helps to ensure patient confidentiality as well as reduce the need for paper.  Using a digital format allows for quick access to your information when needed for insurance records yet provides a secure filing system.

Ultra Quiet Electric Handpieces

These handpieces provide less vibration and noise than traditional dental drills. Not only are they quieter, but also more efficient in tooth preparation making dental procedures shorter and more manageable.

Ultrasonic Piezo Electric Handpieces

Ultrasonic Piezo Electric Handpieces are designed to be used with specialized tips allowing the endodontist to provide conventional root canal treatment and endodontic surgery with precise control that may not be able to be done with traditional dental drills.

GentleWave

GentleWave hand pieceGentleWave ultracleans an infected tooth's entire root canal system, comfortably, thoroughly and quickly. GentleWave employs patented multisonic technology that takes the root canal procedure to a kinder, gentler, and more comfortable place. GentleWave's technology uses multiple wavelengths of sound over a broad range of frequencies to gently remove the diseased tissue from your tooth. During the GentleWave cleaning process, treatment fluids are optimized through the ultracleaning power of multisonic energy. A traditional root canal cleans less thoroughly because even the smallest of files simply can't reach, let alone clean, these areas. Remaining bacteria can be the cause of post-pocedure complications and retreatments. GentleWave gives you the peace-of-mind knowing that you're doing everything possible to optimize your treatment result.
