Benefits of Advanced Technology with Microscope Assisted Endodontics / Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
Endodontic treatment, commonly known as a root canal, is one of the most common dental procedures.  Nearly 16 million root canals are performed national each year.  By incorporate advance technologies such as Microscope, Digital X-ray, Three Dimensional Root Canal Filling System, and Advance Endodontic Rotary Cleaning System, Dr. Gaynor, our Endodontist/ Root Canal Specialist, performs root canal therapy at high level of success rate and nearly pain free.

Root canal is a process of removing an infected or severely inflamed nerve tissue from the roots of a tooth.  If left untreated, an infected or severely inflamed nerve tissue can cause an abscess.  An abscess may show on an X-ray as a dark spot or radiolucency at the apex of the root.  This is actually bone loss in the jaw.  It is very important to treat this problem before it deteriorates. Microscope provides Dr. Gaynor exceptional magnifications and improves illumination to a level of vision unattainable by regular human eye.  This allows us to locate and find microscopic size infected or inflamed nerve tissue.
In addition, advanced microscopes have increased the diagnostic abilibties and predictability in success of endodontic / root canal   procedures.
The most obvious benefits of the microscope are the higher levels of magnification and superior illumination. Magnification of 4 to 10 is ideal and the fiber optic light adds brightness in a concentrated area.
Microscopic endodontics has enhanced our capabilities to perform clinical procedures that previously were unpredictable, and frequently impossible to accomplish.

•    Increased capability to find canals in teeth with difficult anatomy
•    Internal and external tooth structure can be visualized without shadows that could block a ‘fine’ diagnosis, or impede treatment
•    Tooth fractures (coronal/root) can be more readily identified, allowing for early diagnosis
•    Less of the apex needs to be removed during surgical endodontics because of better visualization
•    Complex treatments of perforations, and the removal of separated files, posts and other obstructions, are now done more successfully in a conventional manner, thus avoiding surgery.
•    Fewer traumas to your tooth structure and result in better or faster healing with minimal need for secondary procedures
Through the use of the microscope, we are seeing what was not previously readily available for examination. Overall, the microscope is a technologically advanced method for patient care, for educating the patients, staff and referring doctors, and most importantly increasing the success for endodontic treatment.
