Rotary Instrumentation

These instruments are high-tech tools used by endodontists for restoration and prosthetics. When the electric hand pieces and drills are being used they are very silent which is calming to the patient. These tools allow the treatment and process to be more productive and much easier when cleaning and shaping the root canal in the tooth.


Apex Locators

These electronic devices are used in endodontics that allow a dentist to determine the length of a root that is being treated. These tools significantly shorten a patient’s treatment time. The precision of these tools guarantees that the entire root is cleaned and shaped during treatment. The tools have been shown to be more accurate than radiography in determining the opening of the apex.


Ultrasonic Instruments

These instruments are advanced tools that help a dentist reach areas of a tooth that are inaccessible with other tools. They are smaller than traditional drills and are used to locate calcified canals. Ultrasonic scalers have a tip that vibrates and are also used in endodontics to break down bacteria. This is important because the bacteria are what cause plaque to stick to the teeth in a patient’s mouth.


Mineral Trioxide Aggregate

This cement-like material is used to fill root canals during root canal therapy. It is often used as a filling material for pulp capping, perforations, and apexification. During these procedures, the MTA closes pathways between the root canal system and tissues. The strength of this filling is often compared to concrete!


Surgical Microscope

These microscopes aid the endodontist in the diagnoses and procedures. These high-powered microscopes have excellent magnification properties and lighting which gives the dentist a greater ability to view the interior of the tooth. Attachments can be added to the microscope including cameras and assistant viewing pieces.
