The Benefits of Microscope-Assisted Endodontics

If you’ve been wondering what Andover Cosmetic Dental Group has done to make an everyday procedure like root canals more efficient and comfortable – you’ll want to listen. Our practice has invested state of the art microscopic magnification equipment that is now used in all endodontic (root canal) procedures. Here’s what it is, how it works, and how it can change the way you experience dental care:

Using intense magnification and illumination, microscope-assisted endodontic treatments are much more accurate. The equipment provides our endodontic team with the ability to see the smallest details and surface changes within your tooth chamber. This means that areas of infected tissues are not accidentally overlooked, and our dentists can be sure to address every tiny surface area inside of the nerve chamber.

Minimal Invasiveness

Being that microscopic visibility is now an option, our dentists can complete the procedure at levels that aren’t visible with the naked eye. This limits the invasiveness of certain stages of the root canal, and reduces the size of instruments that are required. As a result, our dentists can also work more efficiently and the procedure can be completed in less time than a traditional root canal.

More efficiency and less invasive steps during your root canal mean that you will respond better to treatment. Most of our patients who have microscope-assisted root canals find that they heal faster, have less discomfort and require fewer secondary procedures after their treatment is completed.

A root canal procedure is an extremely important one – one that can save your tooth entirely. If you’ve putt off your endodontic therapy because of a bad experience in the past, or something you’ve heard from a friend – call Andover Cosmetic Dental Group today.
