Our clinical procedures and technology are constantly reviewed and upgraded to provide advanced services and positive outcomes. Recent technology and procedural advances include the Kodak 9000, surgical operating microscope, ultrasonics, irrigation, and biocompatible sealer materials.
The Kodak 9000 is one of the newest additions to our clinical services. This technology takes a 3D x-ray (CBCT scan) allowing enhanced diagnosis of difficult cases for better clinical outcomes. It is a highly useful tool for viewing hidden canals and other anatomic anomalies, and for assessing re infected root canals prior to re treatment.
The surgical operating microscope allows the doctor to see hidden canals, cracks and internal leakage on existing restorations that impact case evaluation and treatment outcome. Ultrasonic instrumentation combined with the microscope greatly enhances detection and cleansing of canal spaces that might otherwise be missed. Ultrasonic energy is used to loosen bacteria and debris from canal spaces and allows cleansing down to the end of the root tip (apex) when used in combination with EndoVac, a special negative pressure irrigation system. Once the canal system has been thoroughly shaped and cleaned it is filled with a bio ceramic sealer that mimics tooth structure producing a filled root canal that is non toxic and biocompatible.
Our efforts to complete your treatment comfortably and properly in less time are supported by our training, experience, improved technology and genuine concern for patient welfare. Total appointment time is under two hours and actual treatment time is usually under 90 minutes, with 80% of cases completed in one visit. Fewer appointments better serves your schedule and reduces post-operative problems when compared to multiple appointments.Office care
We strive to improve the quality of all office operations through courteous service, training and technology. Our office electronic records system allows fast and accurate communication with you and your general dentist; always keeping your dentist apprised of treatment progress and completion. Computerized patient records also allow our office to better communicate with your insurance company; improving accuracy of coverage verification, filing insurance claims electronically, and reducing the turn around time for insurance claim processing and patient reimbursement.
Financially, we offer a 10% reduced fee for new root canal services if all charges are paid in full at the time of treatment. The 10% discount does not apply to examination and x-rays, endodontic re treatment cases, tooth restorations such as fillings and build ups, or if we file a claim for dental insurance. Convenient personal payment options include most major credit cards, Care Credit and personal check if guaranteed by major credit card.
For dental insurance cases we request payment of half of all charges at the time of treatment to cover all possible deductibles, co pays or unanticipated reduction in benefits. We will electronically file your insurance claim for you and promptly refund any overpayment after receiving full payment from your insurance company. Compare these courtesy services with many offices that require payment in full prior to treatment and provide no assistance with dental insurance. We will always discuss fees and financial arrangements with you prior to commencing treatment.MOST TRADITIONAL INDEMNITY INSURANCE PLANS ACCEPTED.
