Embracing technologies that enhance the practice of endodontics
Our highly trained staff consistently evaluates the benefits of technologies brought to market to determine if they are an enhancement to the practice of endodontics. We recognize the importance of balancing our many years of collective clinical experience along with the most up-to-date advancements in the field of endodontics. As technology continues to advance, we are committed to being at the forefront as it relates to the field of endodontics and the provision of exemplary care.
Fiber Optic Illumination & Magnification
The benefits of microscopic technology are many.
The microscope aids the doctor in seeing details inside the patient's tooth. Dr. Kamer spent many years teaching other endodontic students the importance of the microscope in endodontic therapy. Operating microscopes provide optimal magnification and fiber optic illumination during endodontic treatment, aiding the doctor in seeing tiny details inside a patient's tooth. While the use of a microscope and the magnification it provides in endodontics has been state-of-the-art for many years, some doctors still do not have them. At Absolute Endodontics, all procedures are done with the use of a microscope.
Digital Images, 3D- Cone Beam Imaging System and Intra-Oral Video System
Dr. Kamer started her dental education with digital imagery at the University of Louisville. This university was the first dental school in the U.S. to have digital radiographic imagery, the RVG System from France invented by Dr. Francis Mouyen. Dr. Kamer has always understood the importance of imagery in the field of endodontics. As with the microscope, the ability to better visualize the anatomy of the interior of the tooth impacts the diagnosis. We find it imperative to the care of our patients to have the most current technology available.
We utilize digital radiography (images) versus standard X-Rays. Better quality with minimal radiation exposure. Our 3D Imaging Unit, the Orthophos XG, offers a well-defined image that reveals canal shapes and anatomies that provide precise measurements that are imperative for root canal therapy.
ORTHOPHOS XG 3D
- 3D Views
- Tiltable 2D slices
- Custom 3D slicing PAN, TSA, LSA, axial, sagittal, coronal, 3D model
- Implant-oriented view, 1-Click OP reports
With its cylindrical 3D volume (8 cm diameter, 8 cm height), one scan captures the entire jaw, with a sufficient field of view. The captured volume is also small enough to diagnose time-efficiently thus reducing radiation exposure.
Advanced Infection Control
The importance of sterilization
At Absolute Endodontics we abide be all OSHA standards in the use and care of our instruments and equipment. Sterilization and infection control is just as important to you as it is to us. We choose the A-DEC “Preference ICC” Sterilization Center, the most state-of-the-art sterilization equipment on the market, to ensure your safety. Our staff trains annually on infection control to keep current on the latest laws and techniques. Dr. Kamer holds a degree in microbiology which aids in assuring we will always adhere to the most stringent safety standards recommended by the ADA, CDC, EPA and OSHA.
