Cone Beam CT
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, 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.
Digital Imaging and X-Rays
Digital dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. We utilize only digital imaging within the office and with this advanced technology the exposure time is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional film radiographs.
This advanced technology is extremely safe and accurate. This allows Dr. Shipp to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, analyze the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors. Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to your dentist.
The introduction of the surgical operating microscope has revolutionized the field of endodontic therapy and microsurgery. Dr. Shipp performs all of his procedures using the surgical microscope. He has invested in the very best microscope that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for his surgical procedures.
Dr. Shipp uses the very best dental materials available. These bio-compatible materials used for endodontic therapy have been researched and studied for years, and are considered the highest standard of care available today. Rest assured that you are receiving the best.
