3D IMAGING CBCT
Our practice utilizes 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 visualization 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). .
Metroplex Endodontics Microsurgery 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. Depending on the angulation, 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.
SURGICAL OPERATING MICROSCOPES
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.
We use TDO Software, as it is considered the best endodontic software to use. This technology is used to manage all patient records and information, as well as has comprehensive modules that make our office paperless. The website integration allows our patients to securely access the site to complete the medical history and consent forms online before their appointment. The software also allows our referring dentist to receive their patient’s reports and imaging through secured HIPAA compliant portal. This is a great convenience for our patients and referring dentists.
