Endodontic Technology

Digital X-Rays

Our office uses handheld digital xray technology to lower the amount of radiation that patients are exposed to, digital xrays are also faster to take and are immediately inserted into our patient charts, and can be viewed clearly on the screens in each of our operatory rooms.

Carestream 3D Conebeam Scan

Our 3D Conebeam scan technology is offered to patients who are in need of a more thorough and complex type of xray. This 3D facial scan (xray), allows our Doctors to better diagnose patients and provide more accurate treatment options.  Please feel free to contact us for more information.

LightWalker Er:YAG Laser

Once the tooth is “open”, PIPS then utilizes the power of the LightWalker ER:YAG Laser to create mini photoacoustic shockwaves within the cleaning solutions that are introduced into the root canal.  Instead of using different files to clean out the tooth, the shockwaves created by the laser are streamlined throughout the entire root canal system, enhancing the effectiveness of the cleaning solution.

Major benefits for patients include a more thorough cleaning and debriding of the root canal space, a reduced risk of re-infection, and natural preservation of the tooth endoskeleton, in turn maintaining the strength of the treated tooth.
