Cone Beam CT
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computerized tomography) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis 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). With the addition of cone-beam CT technology to our office, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality, patient care.
Dr. Cohen and Dr. Stevenson carefully choose 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, idnetify bone abnormalities, 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. With digital imaging, radiation exposure is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital x-rays offer the highest level of precision and accuracy for evaluation and diagnosis.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to other providers or insurance companies.
The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontic Microsurgery. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes, made by the Global Surgical Company, that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical procedures.
Our success depends on us being able to see the smallest 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 are proud to be a completely paperless office! In addition to our digital x-rays, we also offer online patient registration and referrals. A paperless office has many benefits including electronic transmission of records to all providers involved in the patient’s care.
