No one looks forward to a root canal, and everyone would like to avoid a root canal retreatment. To make sure you only need to visit Integrated Aesthetic Dentistry for one endodontic treatment, our dentists and team use an electronic apex locator in New York City. Drs. Barsoum, Cafarella, Reid, Heindel, Nord, Vonderheide and Chu will use this locator to measure the length of your tooth’s roots, starting at the crown. This technology can provide us with more accurate information than we could gather by simply using dental X-rays.
During your root canal, the doctor will remove any bacteria and infected pulp from the root chamber. By using an electronic apex locator, the doctor can effectively reach and eliminate the infection and greatly reduce, if not eliminate, the possibility that you will need to return to our office for a second treatment.
We want to make sure that every visit to our office is as effective as possible, and we are committed to providing you with the highest quality of care at each appointment. To discover the difference a visit with our talented dentists can make in your smile, call our office today and speak with one of our team members. Our team looks forward to seeing you!
