At Oak Hills Endodontics, we invest in state-of-the-art technology. Staying on top of the latest dentistry has to offer helps us work more precisely  and is a key to the high rate of success we have with our treatments.

With digital X-rays, we can immediately see highly detailed and accurate images of the inside of your mouth. This data helps us diagnose and plan root canal procedures. It reveals your unique dental anatomy as well as potential sites of infection. Special software helps enhance the x-rays for maximum diagnostic value.

Cone Beam Computed Tomographyphotograph of a state-of-the-art CBCT 3D x-ray machine

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) creates a three-dimensional view of your tooth and jawbone. Getting this more accurate view greatly assists us in accurately treating your tooth. 

Electronic Apex Locator

We use an apex locator to find the precise end of your tooth’s root. If the tooth isn’t cleaned to the end of the root, infection can return. If it is cleaned out past the apex of the tooth, it will be difficult to obtain a good seal.

Originally, a dentist would perform root canals manually with a series of small files. Today, advanced electric rotary tools allow endodontists to complete root canals more quickly and efficiently, which translates to increased comfort for the patient. These tools use the enhanced flexibility of nickel-titanium alloy to clean deep into your tooth’s roots. 

Ultrasonic Instrumentation

Gentle, powerful ultrasonic tools use water and pulsing acoustic frequencies to loosen debris from canal walls, to dislodge obstructions, and to reach tiny, otherwise undetected lateral canals. Ultrasonic instruments can get into tiny and irregularly shaped spaces better than traditional methods.

Root canal microscopes give our endodontists a better view of the interior of your tooth. With up to 25x magnification, these microscopes facilitate the precision work necessary for a successful root canal.

Bio-Ceramic Sealer

Endodontists use sealers during root canals to bond the filling material to the interior of the tooth. Traditional sealers include zinc oxide and eugenol, and calcium hydroxide. Newer bioceramic sealers are made of modern materials such as bioactive glass and calcium phosphates. These ceramics are superior for medical and dental uses because they are biocompatible, allowing them to bond to the tooth for excellent strength and faster healing.
