Dr. Scott A. Norton (Endodontist in Louisville, KY) is dedicated to providing the highest standard of care to his patients. Therefore, he takes extra measures to use the best equipment and products that have been throughly researched and proven.
Did you know that root canals demand great precision and are performed in the area of fractions of millimeters? Because of this, Dr. Norton chooses to use an operating microscope when performing root canal therapy on all of his patients. The microscope provides a high degree of magnification with a strong focused light that enables Dr. Norton to actually see areas of the tooth that would otherwise be guess work.
Dr Norton is a member of the AAE (American Association of Endodontists) which makes a position statement that the microscope is an important addition to the armamentarium of modern endodontics. The AAE also states that using an operating microscope helps set the bar of excellence at the highest level.
