Digital Imaging

advanced technology

Associated Endodontists - Dr. Paul A. Scott utilizes state-of-the-art digital x-rays and carefully chooses when they are needed are. There are many guidelines that we follow. Digital imaging allows us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes and these digital x-rays 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. Associated Endodontists - Dr. Paul A. Scott utilizes digital imaging technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90% 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

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.

Surgical Microscopes

The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of endodontic microsurgery. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes by Carl Zeiss that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical procedures.

Our success depends on us being able to see the minutest of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see. In addition, we have incorporated the latest high definition video allowing us to record our procedures with unequalled clarity and detail.
