At Commonwealth Endodontics, we are committed to utilizing the latest technology to reduce patient discomfort and healing time to include cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging, operating microscopes, and digital intraoral radiography.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) USE CBCT
Our goal is to provide you with the best, most accurate, and thorough diagnosis possible. Recent technological breakthroughs have allowed us to make major advances in our ability to achieve this goal. The CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) imaging gives us a 360 degree, three-dimensional view of the area we are examining. With its extremely high resolution and exceptionally low radiation, it has literally changed our world with respect to what we can now see. CBCT imaging offers a large volume of information and subtle details that simply cannot be obtained by any two-dimensional X-ray, whether intraoral or panoramic. One 3D scan allows our doctors to examine the region of interest at a high resolution from many different perspectives. Clinical studies support this technology’s improved diagnostic capabilities. We are proud to offer CBCT technology to our patients and feel strongly this allows us to provide the very highest level of care possible today.
By using the best operating microscopes, this helps us locate the exact surgical site and the area requiring treatment. Microscopy is a specialized lighting and magnification aid to closely analyze the root canal. We use this to clean the canal and detect for any irregularities that cannot be picked up with a regular microscope.
Digital Intraoral Radiography
Today, our digital intraoral radiography emits less radiation than any other radiographic machine. This type of imaging is film-based, meaning that we can choose to enhance the quality of each image.
