Cone Beam CT
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small-volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning, and treatment of endodontic disease. This allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses, and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular dental x-rays). With the addition of cone-beam CT technology to our office, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality, patient care.
FOTONA LIGHTWALKER AT/S
Fotona’s SSP and SWEEPS® endodontic laser treatment successfully addresses a major disadvantage of classical chemo-mechanical treatment procedures: the inability to completely clean, debride and disinfect anatomically complex root canal systems.
Fast, Effective, and Minimally Invasive Treatments with Two Complementary Laser Technologies
- The SSP (Super Short Pulse) irrigation (also known as Photon-Induced Photo-acoustic Streaming) uses the Er: YAG laser to create non-thermal photoacoustic waves within the cleaning and debriding solutions introduced in the canal. Following this photoacoustic treatment, the canals and sub-canals are left clean, and the dentinal tubules are free of a smear layer.
- The latest SWEEPS® (Shock Wave Enhanced Emission Photo-acoustic Streaming) Er: YAG laser modality additionally improves the irrigation and disinfecting efficacy of laser endodontics. By using synchronized pairs of ultra-short pulses, an accelerated collapse of laser-induced bubbles is achieved, leading to enhanced shockwave emission even inside the narrowest root canals.
Advantages of SSP and SWEEPS® Technologies
A major advantage of the SSP and SWEEPS® technologies lies in the easy positioning of the cavitation source (the laser emitting fiber-tip) in the pulp chamber, at a safe distance from the apical terminus. This position permits simultaneous irrigation in all of the endodontic geometry independently of the root canal anatomy and without the risk of apical extrusion. With SSP and SWEEPS® irrigation, the irrigant is delivered throughout the complete root canal system, including within the lateral canals and dentinal tubules.
The powerful combination of the revolutionary SSP and SWEEPS® technologies in Fotona dental lasers represents a unique and highly effective solution for modern endodontics. Available only with Fotona LightWalker® and SkyPulse®.
Fotona’s SSP and SWEEPS® Endodontic Treatment can be best performed with the following multi-wavelength laser system:
LightWalker® – a uniquely capable system offering the power of the industry’s highest performance Er: YAG and Nd: YAG dental lasers for expanded dual-wavelength treatment options, including the proprietary TwinLight® Endodontic and Periodontal Treatments. The top-of-the-line LightWalker AT model features the ultimate in convenience and ergonomic comfort and is the only dental laser system on the market that includes built-in scanner-ready technology.

Endodontics Limited 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. Endodontics Limited 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 to the light. Digital X-rays result in 1/6th of the radiation exposure to you.
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 unequaled clarity and detail.
