The use of the Endo Microscope allows a doctor to perform procedures with greater accuracy because the treatment area is magnified. The microscope's superior illumination and magnification has made the greatest impact on visualization of the area, evaluation of surgical technique, and use of fewer x-rays. With the unique ultrasonic unit and tips, a separated instrument or silver point can be removed with less effort. Fourth canals are now routinely being located and completely debrided in virtually all molars, thus increasing the long-term success rate with root canal therapy.
If you are referred to an endodontist for a more difficult root canal, it is good to know that all of the endodontic specialists in our area utilize these high tech microscopes. This helps make your experience go faster and be more predictable.
