Microscope and CBCT Q & A
What is a root canal?
A root canal is a commonly performed dental treatment that cures teeth damaged by infection. When the pulp inside the root of your tooth becomes infected, it can threaten the health of your entire tooth. Without treatment, these infections can lead to severe decay and tooth loss. With a root canal, Dr. Deca can access your tooth root, remove the infected soft tissue, and restore your tooth to optimal health.
How do I know if I need a root canal?
When Dr. Deca diagnoses you for possible root infections, he uses the most cutting-edge dental instruments available today, including dental microscopes and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) dental scanners.
Using a microscope and CBCT technology, Dr. Deca can see things that he wouldn’t be able to distinguish with the naked eye. The process increases diagnostic accuracy, improves treatment planning, and optimizes results. Dr. Deca also uses these technologies during the actual root canal treatment.
How does a root canal work?
First, Dr. Deca applies a local anesthetic to make sure you don’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Then, he uses a special dental drill to create a hole atop the affected tooth and gain access to the infected pulp.
Next, Dr. Deca carefully removes the damaged pulp, cleans the canal thoroughly, and refills it with a rubbery material for support. He then reseals the opening.
Throughout each stage of treatment, Dr. Deca’s meticulousness and attention to detail are aided by the microscope and CBCT scanner. The live imaging and scan technology help Dr. Deca pinpoint the orientation and position of nerves, teeth, and roots.
