GentleWave® Ultra Cleaning Procedure
Our Pensacola endodontic office is the ONLY endodontic practice in the Florida and Alabama Gulf Coast utilizing the GentleWave system. This is different from standard root canal treatments because the GentleWave ultra cleaning procedure is able to reach all throughout your tooth — even in the microscopic places where bacteria can hide. This eliminates the need for 2 appointments, saves patients’ time, and allows for better outcomes with less chance of postoperative pain or need for antibiotics.
Cone Beam Imaging
Cone Beam imaging is an advanced form of digital radiograph. With the cone beam imager, one simple scan will produce a 3D image of your entire maxillofacial structure. This image can then be used in diagnostics, patient education, treatment planning, and treatment follow-up.
There are a few benefits the cone beam imaging that will impact your treatment:
- Precise Treatment – It helps us precisely identify the most effective treatment for your tooth.
- Improved Outcomes – The periapical pathology ensures that the final outcome of your treatment is greatly improved over traditional treatment.
- Fewer Appointments – This will drastically reduce the need for exploratory procedures, ensuring you have fewer appointments in the end.
The cone beam provides an effective solution to create quick, clear, precise images for your benefit. Additionally, the cone beam uses minimal radiation in scanning and is a much less-invasive process than other forms of imaging. This makes the cone beam an excellent choice for patients with dental anxiety or a sensitive gag reflex.
By utilizing advanced technologies like the cone beam, our team can provide an effective, efficient, and comfortable patient experience for you on every visit.
Advanced Surgical Microscopes
In addition to the GentleWave and Cone Beam imaging, Dr. Todd also employs the use of surgical microscopes. These microscopes can magnify the tooth up to 20x! These microscopes ensure that each movement Dr. Todd makes is calculated to improve treatment and reduce pain!
