Digital x-rays are quickly becoming
adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray
allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it
into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number
of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the
teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to
the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation
than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version
of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been
specifically designed with the patient in mind.
Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain.
Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific electrical handpiece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease.
