Perry Endodontics carefully chooses which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs 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 analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, 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. Perry Endodontics utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
CBCt: 3-Dimensional Scans:
3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography technology provides a digital tomographic 3D view of a patient’s area of interest. A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With CBCT technology a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas allows us to identify and treat pathology and anatomy not detectable with traditional x-rays resulting in more thorough and precise treatment. CBCT technology provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is efficient and convenient and provides unprecedented benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.
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. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontic Microsurgery. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes, by Carl Zeiss, that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical procedures.
Our success depends on us being able to see the minutest of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see. In addition, we have incorporated the latest high definition video allowing us to record our procedures with unequalled clarity and detail.
