TECHNOLOGY IN OUR OFFICE
Did you know that the dental field is very dynamic and ever changing? Many advancements have been made in the field of endodontics that allow an even more accurate evaluation and diagnosis which enable better care and treatment of patients. In our office we strive to use the best technology that will allow for all of these things
as well as giving peace of mind to you as a patient, your referring doctor and everyone at our office.
Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with a few of the technological devices that we use in order to better treat your endodontic needs.
DEXIS® Digital X-rays
The ADA (American Dental Association) strongly supports the use of digital x-rays over conventional film due to the major reduction in radiation. In our office, we utilize DEXIS Digital X-rays which plays one of the most important roles in helping Dr. Norton diagnose your endodontically involved tooth. In addition, DEXIS radiographs have been shown to capture some of the most consistent images at lower doses of radiation than other systems. DEXIS software and images provide Dr. Norton with more accurate measurements of canals during the endodontic procedure. This information can be saved electronically within the x-ray image along with all other images allowing for a more precise procedure. Digital radiographs can be printed or easily shared electronically with referring dentists and insurance companies. Being able to share radiographs electronically and eliminating the chemicals used to develop conventional x-ray film, allows Dr. Norton’s office to be more eco-friendly. (Read more from Dr. Norton)
