Technology
GentleWave

Effectively cleaning the deepest, most complex portions 1,2 of the root canal system requires incredible innovation—and we are proud to offer that technology with the GentleWave® Procedure. The GentleWave Procedure is a state-of-the-art alternative to standard root canal treatment. The ultracleaning technology of the GentleWave Procedure is an advanced combination of fluid dynamics and a broad range of soundwaves that work together to reach into the microscopic spaces 1,2 and remove bacteria, debris and tissue.2 The GentleWave Procedure is so effective at cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system, there's less chance of failure over time. 3 The GentleWave Procedure uses a minimally invasive 1 protocol to access the infected root canal system, which means it is preserving more of the natural tooth and, in doing so, is helping to keep the tooth’s structure strong. With the GentleWave Procedure we can also typically clean and fill the tooth in just one appointment, 3 which may reduce the number of appointments required. Achieving an exceptional level of clean requires advanced endodontics—and that’s something we take pride in providing. Contact us today to discover the GentleWave Difference for yourself.

Focused Field Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)

The Focused Field CBCT 3D digital scanner is useful in the diagnosis of orofacial pathology.  It can be used to asses general root morphology, the number of roots and the location of canals.  Frequently a tooth has an infection that is not seen on the standard dental X-ray but which can be seen on the CBCT image.    

The CBCT is also useful in diagnosing the size and location of internal and external resorptive defects, cracked teeth due to trauma, perforations, and the proximity of roots to anatomical structures (Nerves and Sinus).

Proper diagnosis is critical to determining the cause of symptoms.  A CBCT scan can assist in determining if a previously root canal treated tooth should be retreated, surgerized or extracted without the need for exploratory procedures.  Measurements of roots and distances to anatomical structures are easily obtained making treatment more precise.

TDO Software
TDO Software

Our office uses an endodontic practice management software called The Digital Office (TDO). It is the cornerstone of our office and is used by all members of our staff. Designed by endodontist Gary B. Carr, every aspect of TDO allows us to diagnose and treat patients more efficiently and run our office more effectively. 

The software consists of modules that structure the way in which we manage our patients. From the initial checkin process to the time a patient checks out, TDO allows us to enhance every aspect of a patient's office experience. 

By using software specifically designed for endodontics, our staff have the ability to place patient outcomes at the forefront of everything we do. By having all recording keeping and charting occur digitally, we eliminate double entry and problems faced by more traditional endodontic practices.
 
The Clinical modules that we use are recognized as the gold standard in endodontic recordkeeping.

Our Communication modules are the most advanced in the field of endodontics. They allow staff to communicate rapidly and without any delays. Our final treatment reports are entirely customizable which ensure that our general dentists get the information they need in a timely manner.

Every module of our software has been thoroughly vetted by thousands of endodontists around the world.

We are proud to say that we are a TDO office.
