The field of Endodontics has changed dramatically in the last ten to fifteen years. Advances in technology have allowed endodontists to do procedures more effectively and with great precision. By magnifying the tooth as much as twenty times, this technology greatly enhances the ability to see down into the root canals, and helps identify any additional canals and/or cracks in the tooth. Scientific research shows that the surgical operating microscope can significantly increase the success of root canal treatment and surgical procedures performed. In addition to the surgical operating microscope, our office uses new digital x-ray technology. It releases up to 90 percent less radiation than old-fashioned radiographs, and produces high-quality images of your tooth onto our computers.
