Cone Beam CT
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 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 that is 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.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Eastern Idaho Endodontics utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies. 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 such as: detecting cavities in between your teeth, determining bone level, and analyzing 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.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
The introduction of the dental microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontics. We have invested in the very best quality microscopes, that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our procedures.
Our success depends on us being able to see the minutest of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see.
