Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in the care of teeth that are infected, causing pain, or otherwise injured. When you need to see an endodontist, you want them to be on the cutting edge in their field and using the latest technology.
For the highest level of care for troubled teeth, look no further than Rick Davis, DDS, Rick Schwartz, DDS, and our professional team at Endodontic Consultants of San Antonio. We perform the most current and effective procedures using state-of-the-art endodontic technology.
Our proactive approach to endodontic care is evident before you even come in for your appointment. We use electronic charts, allowing you to fill out necessary forms ahead of time and helping us receive information, like digital X-rays, from a referring doctor.
We take pride in being a state-of-the-art practice. That pride is backed by the expertise, knowledge, and experience to administer the latest in endodontic technology to safely and efficiently preserve and protect your teeth. Technology we use includes:
We introduced this technology recently based on excellent results. With GentleWave, we can clean your tooth more thoroughly and finish your root canal in one procedure.
When we perform a root canal, we need to locate the end of the root where it meets the tooth. Computer-based electronic apex locators allow us to accurately measure the length of your root canal, which cuts your treatment time drastically. It also reduces the need for X-rays.
To view the target area, appropriate magnification and lighting help us ensure the best possible outcome. Our microscopes allow us to see the most minute areas of your tooth and root canal.
Conventional X-rays expose you to high levels of radiation. We use digital radiography to significantly lessen your exposure, plus we can easily share the captured images electronically with other providers to help simplify your care.
With digital radiography, we can also increase the contrast and enlarge images for a more accurate diagnosis of your tooth problem.
Sometimes, we need to “see through” your teeth. That’s what 3D imaging allows us to do. We can view your problem tooth from all dimensions, and our technology emits a fraction of radiation compared to that of a CT scan.
When you come in for a consultation, we work with you to decide on the best treatment solution for your situation. Our goal is to successfully repair your tooth safely and efficiently.
