The advancement of technology has provided us with many healing treatments. The options come in the form of new devices and processes, which ensure a higher comfort and success rate. Endodontic treatment offers a more certain way of saving most the teeth. Even in the midst of different types of endodontic conditions, rest assured we would use our extensive experience to select the best process and equipment suitable for your treatment.

Ultrasonic Scalers
Ultrasonic scalers are modern equipment that assists in dental cleaning, especially the canals.

STA™ Single Tooth Anesthesia System
This is a high precision computerized system, which enables the application of local anesthesia to just the point where it is needed, without affecting the surrounding area. The STA™ System has an audio-visual functionality, which provides real-time confirmation of the accuracy of injections. STA™ ensures that the procedure is less stressful, less radical, and boosts the confidence of both the patient and the dentist in getting the injection into the right spot the first time. With the STA™ System, there is no general numbness, and the recovery time for the patient is usually very short.

Operating Microscopes
These are optical microscopes specially designed for use in delicate microsurgery, where the surgeon needs to work on tiny areas of the body. We use these microscopes to achieve 4 to 40 times magnification and illumination.

Apex Locators
These devices help in locating where the root ends in order to enhance the success rate of an endodontic healing treatment.

Digital Radiography
Digital radiography is one of the different types of X-ray imaging, which utilizes digital sensors in place of the conventional photographic X-ray film. The benefits of digital radiography include quick turnaround time in getting images, ability to enlarge and enhance the images for a more detailed examination, and the ability to transfer the images electronically. This type of X-ray uses less amount of radiation (only 10%) when compared to traditional radiography.

Nickel-titanium devices
Stainless steel has limited flexibility, which is why nickel-titanium alloy became the preferred material for the manufacture of canal cleaning devices. These devices have the ability to follow dental contours during cleaning procedures. This ensures a more thorough cleaning action and complete elimination of bacteria.

Hand-held electric devices
These devices make use of nickel-titanium files. We can regulate the speed to suit any particular cleaning action on the root canal.
