1. Digital X-Ray
The use of digital x-rays is quickly becoming standard within the dental industry. Digital x-rays allow the dentist to take a high quality image of teeth and transfer it to an imaging program, where they can see your teeth with amazing accuracy. As an added benefit, the digital x-rays also exposes the patient to 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray.
2. Electric Handpieces
There are two types of hand-pieces: air-driven and electric. We use electric as they are much stronger than air-driven. This allows the doctor to remove decay much more quickly, cutting down on the time spent on the procedure.
3. Rotary Endodontics
Root canal therapy, often referred to as a “Root Canal”, is a procedure in which the infected roots of a tooth are removed, usually because they are causing pain. Rotary endodontics utilizes an electric hand-piece, speeding up the process and allowing the dentist greater ease of use.
