Endodontics, or root canals, is a procedure that removes the roots or the nerves of the roots of a tooth. You may need to have root canal treatment if the pulp, the part where the blood vessels and nerves are, of your tooth has become infected. Root canal infections are often very painful and should be treated immediately. Rotary endodontics entails using a specific electrical handpiece to perform the root canal treatment procedure. This tool allows the process to be done faster and at greater ease for the dentist.
At Mayfair Family Dentistry, we have access to intraoral cameras. This pen-shaped camera can be moved around the mouth cavity to provide close up views of your teeth. This camera is useful in detecting dental issues that may otherwise be overlooked. The intraoral camera can be manipulated to show multiple different angles of a tooth. These images allow you to see the same thing the dentist is seeing and can often be helpful in gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
Our oral cancer screenings are conducted using an excitation light. When this light is shined over the oral cavity, normal tissue will produce an apple-green fluorescent glow. Abnormal tissue will be distinguishable by a loss of fluorescence. Using this method allows for oral cancer to be detected much earlier. Oral cancer can fester beneath the visible surface of the mouth and could be caught within the oral stages with the use of technology such as an excitation light.
