Kubelka Endodontics carefully chooses which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Kubelka Endodontics utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies to benefit his patients. With digital imaging, exposure time and X-ray exposure are significantly less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital imaging also allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily share them with your general dentist or insurance company.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light.
The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontic Microsurgery. We have invested in the very best quality surgical microscopes, by Carl Zeiss, that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical procedures.
Our success depends on us being able to see the minutest of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see. Dr. Kubelka uses the microscope to make sure there are no problems deep inside the tooth, locate “hard to find” canals, and generally improve all aspects of endodontic diagnosis and treatment.
