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, 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). With the addition of cone-beam CT technology, Metropolitan Endodontics is committed to providing innovative, high-quality patient care.
Metropolitan Endodontics 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. 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.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Metropolitan Endodontics utilizes digital imaging technologies within the office. With digital imaging, patient exposure is significantly less when compared to traditional radiographs.
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 surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of endodontic microsurgery. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes by Global, 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.
