Computed Tomography (CT) and Digital Radiography
Tataryn Endodontics is proud to announce that we have incorporated Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CT) as well as digital radiography in our practice. The incorporation of focused field CT scanning allows for precise 3-D examination of root anatomy (curvature, length, and number of canals), enhanced early diagnosis of pathology (precise location and extent), and accurate pre-surgical anatomic evaluation. With digital radiography, the most important benefits to you as a patient are an amazing 90% lower radiation dosage and increased diagnostic accuracy compared with conventional x-ray techniques.
Tataryn 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. Tataryn 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.
Dr. Tataryn uses four state-of-the-art Zeiss microscopes for both surgical and non-surgical endodontic procedures. The increased magnification allows detailed visualization of complex canal anatomy and surgical root-end preparations.
