At Clear Lake Endodontics of Houston,
we pride ourselves on providing endodontic care at the forefront
of innovation and technology. We employ advanced technologies to
enhance the quality of care for our patients. Such advances
include an operating microscope, digital radiography, ultrasonic
instrumentation and fiber optic technologies.
Our practice is equipped with
surgical microscopes. The enhanced magnification and
illumination of the operating microscope allows superior
visualization of the finest detail in the tooth structure,
thereby allowing us to perform the highly technical aspect of
the endodontic treatment with precision.
Our practice utilizes an advanced
computerized imaging system called "Computed Dental Radiography". This
highly sophisticated imaging system provides an immediate
digital image of the tooth during treatment while dramatically
reducing the amount of patient exposure to radiation.
Ultrasonics are among the other
technological advancements that have opened up entirely new vistas for the successful
treatment of both surgical and non-surgical cases. These
sophisticated units are used to remove post and uncover the
dystrophic ally calcified portions of the chamber to gain access
to the canals. Ultrasonic instruments are also used for retro
cavity preparation of the root end during microsurgical
In our practice, instrumentation of root canal is
facilitated by files made of a unique alloy of Nickel-Titanium.
The extreme flexibility of the Nickel-Titanium files preserves
the anatomy of the root canal by following the canal path
resulting in efficiency, predictability, and improved clinical
results of endodontic treatment of significantly curved canals.
Electronic Apex Locator:
The Electronic Apex Locator is among other technologies that facilitates
predictable non-surgical endodontic treatment. The incorporation
of electronic Apex Locator allows accurate computer measurement
of root canals during endodontic treatment, thereby accelerating
the procedure while reducing the need for additional
