Apex Locators

Historically, root canal therapy was completed using two dimensional x-ray images to approximate the length of your root. The inaccuracies in this technique were such that if the entire root canal wasn't cleaned properly it could need to be retreated to remove all the infection.

 

In the interest of providing our patients with the highest quality treatment, our doctors use an apex locator to best eliminate the possibility of root canal failure. An apex locator is an electronic instrument used to measure the working length and endpoint of the root canal much more accurately than previously possible. By using an apex locator, the need for multiple dental x-rays during root canal therapy is decreased and the success rate for a root canal procedure is significantly improved as it allows for more complete removal of infection and proper fill of the root system.


If you have questions regarding your dental needs, our doctors are happy to personally speak with you. Schedule a consultation so that you can have the opportunity to get to know our office and see firsthand what sets us apart.
