Microscopes are an essential part of endodontic care because they allow our dentists to view even the tiniest details throughout a patient’s tooth with outstanding clarity, such as the location of hidden canals, infectious bacteria, and more. Afton Endodontics has invested in state-of-the-art Zeiss technology here in Concord, which is well-known for exceptional magnification. Our goal is to provide comprehensive, lasting treatment success for patients as early as possible.
Root canal therapy, endodontic retreatment, and likeminded specialty procedures can be complex by nature, which means that careful treatment planning makes all the difference when it comes to something as valuable as preserving a patient’s natural teeth for life. That’s why our endodontists use CB/CT scanner technology to capture three-dimensional radiographs of the dental structure that provide invaluable insight to the treatment planning process.
GentleWave technology is a highly valuable alternative to the traditional instruments used for root canal treatment, and Dr. Gell and Dr. Watts are excited to introduce you to its benefits during your appointment. By combining a powerful vortex of treatment fluids and state-of-the-art acoustic energy, we can promise our patients a higher standard of clean than ever before, even in microscopic spaces that couldn’t be reached before by standard techniques.
