Orange Park Endodontics carefully chooses which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Orange Park Endodontics utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontics. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our endodontic procedures.
Our success depends on us being able to see the minutest of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
This exciting technology is state-of-the-art and allows us to visualize your tooth and surrounding structures in 3D. Our CS 8100 3D provides Dr. Brown with the most accurate view of patients’ anatomy for improved diagnoses, treatment planning, and surgical predictability. Some images can even be captured in as little as seven seconds using 50 percent less radiation than standard acquisition. This low-dose unit acquires images with dosages equivalent to 8.5-10.5 days normal background radiation exposure, which is even less than a normal digital full mouth series of radiographs!
As patient well-being is always our top concern, the innovative patient-centric design of the CS 8100 3D helps us to obtain high-quality images while keeping your comfort at the forefront. The open design of the CS 8100 3D will put you at ease and accommodate patients of all shapes and sizes, including those in wheelchairs.
We want you to know that what matters to us most is taking care of you – our patient. This technology helps us significantly improve patient care, and we appreciate the trust you put in our practice and look forward to continuing our mutually beneficial relationship for many years to come. Below is an example of the high quality images we can obtain with this state-of-the-art technology.
