Digital operating microscopes are used for all endodontic procedures. Magnification and illumination aid the doctor to see tiny details inside your tooth. A camera on the microscope can record images of your tooth to further document the doctor's findings.
Cone Beam CT
The cone beam CT (or CBCT) is a 3D radiograph that aids in diagnosis and treatment by providing additional information that is not visible on traditional 2D radiographs. CBCT imaging may be helpful in cases of unknown etiology, complex anatomy, trauma, root resorption, or pre-surgical planning. A CBCT scan is limited to a small region of interest and has a significantly reduced amount of radiation compared to a medical CT. After obtaining a scan, a dental radiology specialist will review the scan and provide a report of their findings.
