The field of endodontics has greatly advanced with new techniques, materials, and equipment, especially within the past 15 years. Root canal treatment has become a pain-free, quick, and long-lasting treatment that allows patients to keep their teeth and enjoy a healthy smile. Patients searching for endodontists in Cranberry can be assured that Dr. Semashko offers compassionate, knowledgeable care.
3D Imaging is a Game Changer
The 3-D CBCT digital imaging system is a tremendous improvement over 2-D imaging. The human body is three dimensional, of course, but traditional X-ray imaging systems take two-dimensional pictures. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (we call it CBCT) operates in a similar fashion as other 3-D imaging systems, like CAT scans. The computer captures hundreds of images of your mouth from various angles, then creates a full picture.
What Does This Mean for the Patient?
This system creates a better experience for patients who are undergoing a root canal, root canal re-treatment, or surgery such as an apicoectomy.
