At Metropolitan Endodontics, we make sure that each of our treatments is meticulously planned to obtain the ideal results. To help us do this, we use some of the latest oral imaging instruments, like our cone beam CT scanner. Not only do each of these gadgets make your visits more comfortable, but they also make gathering the information necessary for a successful procedure faster and easier. To learn more about some of the dental technology you can find around our office, read below.
In the past, dentists would use film X-rays to view the area of your mouth that lies below your gumline. At Metropolitan Endodontics, we use safe, effective, and fast digital X-ray imaging for more accurate diagnoses and precise treatments. Not only does this advanced technology reduce radiation exposure by up to 90 percent, but it also stores the images in a digital format that’s easy to transfer and store.
Our PlanMeca ProMax® 2DS3 cone beam CT scanner-Ultra Low Dose(™) Imaging is an advanced imaging device that takes X-ray imaging to another level. This device is able to capture a complete, panoramic view of your facial structure. It allows us to see dentition, your sinuses, the density of your jawbone, and your facial nerves, allowing us to thoroughly plan treatments like root canal therapy and tooth extractions while minimizing any risk of complications.
