Advanced Technology

What new technologies are being used?

Operating Microscopes:

In addition to digital radiography, we utilize special operating microscopes. Magnification and fiber optic illumination are helpful in aiding the doctor to see tiny details inside your tooth. Also, a tiny video camera on the operating microscope can record images of your tooth to further document the doctor’s findings.

Apex Locators

Allows us to electronically determine the actual length of a tooth and the end of the root without the use of x-rays. These devices work by calculating the resistance of tooth structure to provide a visual an audible signal.

Ultrasonics

Quartz crystal devices are used to vibrate small instruments to help clean and prepare the canals during surgical procedures. It can also aid in the removal of posts and other canal obstructions.

Nickel Titanium instrumentation & Electric and Wireless Handpieces

Our special digital electric and wireless hand pieces controls high-tech Nickel Titanium instruments with great precision to facilitate the cleaning and shaping of the canals.

Reciprocating Motor Driven Handpiece

Vertical Reciprocation rapidly cuts through all curved, calcified, and tight canals and eliminates the need to worry about file failure even at faster speeds (8K to 30K revolutions per minute)

Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (M.T.A.)

This relatively new ceramic material is hydrophilic. It is used for pulp cappings, resorptions, perforation repairs, retrofillings during apical surgical procedures and as an apical sealer during apexifications. It is biocompatible and resistant to micro leakage.

3D Imaging

The CS 9000 system gives our Endodontic practice state-of-the-art technology to help diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. Our new 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits. The CS 9000 scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern. The CS 9000 system brings the latest 3D technology to Advanced Endodontic Associates, PA, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail which aids in treatment planning and helps us to better explain the particulars of your case, as well as address any questions you may have. Your doctors can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience, and delivering a positive treatment outcome
