Key pieces of equipment I use…and why

I have done my due diligence when it comes to choosing the very best equipment for my endodontic practice. Using advanced endodontic technology has increased referrals, improved outcomes and patient satisfaction.

GENTLEWAVE® technology:
A more effective clean

In my practice, we depend on GentleWave technology to provide a less invasive, more thorough cleaning of the entire root system. It allows us to methodically treat the infected root system with minimal instrumentation, helping us to preserve more of the natural tooth structure. Not to mention that it’s a safer clean. The closed-loop GentleWave system creates a seal so it can send medication into the tooth, remove the bacteria, and prevent aerosol emission.

As the name implies, the GentleWave treatment gently cleans the entire root system. It is not pushing fluid into the root system, rather it uses Bernoulli’s Principle to loosen bacteria from all areas of the tooth via sound.

CBCT

I use a CBCT prior to every treatment. Using a CBCT, we can pinpoint the exact location of the infection in the tooth, and also receive accurate anatomical measurements, which gives us a road map to ensure a precise and effective root canal treatment.⁠ With CBCT visualization, we’re able to evaluate the true extent of our patient’s anatomy including the spatial relationship to important anatomical landmarks and vital structures.⁠ ⁠

My philosophy is: You don’t know, what you don’t know. Cone-beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging is a critical piece of technology that we use to gain a thorough understanding of our patient’s infection and the appropriate course of treatment including diagnosis, prognosis, treatment planning and treatment follow-up.

My Endo2Endo Coaching Program addresses the key aspects of your practice: clinical efficiency and scheduling — elements that could be keeping you from having the practice you imagined when you first opened your doors. A few simple shifts can help improve the way your office runs, while allowing more free time for the activities you love.
