In addition to digital radiography, we utilize special operating Global microscopes in all operatories. Magnification and fiber optic illumination are helpful in aiding the doctor to see tiny details inside your tooth. Also, a tiny video camera on the operating microscope can record images of your tooth to further document the doctor’s findings.

In keeping with our tradition of being early adopters of technology to better serve our patients, we at University Park Endodontics are pleased to have the KODAK 9000 3D Extra oral Imaging System.
The KODAK 9000 3 D System gives our practice the ability to take powerful three dimensional (3D) digital images, while using no more radiation than traditional two dimensional (2D) film x-rays. The unit captures high-quality images and allows our practice to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in the office, helping reduce multiple visits and rescheduling, saving our patients time and money.
Three-dimensional technology allows our doctors to better visualize our patients’ dentition, without having to send patients for radiology scans. Viewing an unprecedented level of anatomical detail helps practitioners diagnose more accurately and treat with confidence.
This unique “two-in-one” system (3D and panoramic) is well suited for dental professionals who regularly perform complex diagnostic, surgical, and endodontic procedures. The highest resolution imaging capabilities provided by this unit will enable clinicians to detect problems with more accuracy. This breakthrough technology provides unprecedented x-ray views of the oral cavity.
Peraipical and panoramic radiography have been augmented by the recent introduction of high-resolution cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), allowing 3D assessment of oral lesions, root canal morphology, retreatment cases, root fractures, implants, and so forth. Because the 9000 system focuses only on the area in need of diagnosis, the amount of radiation exposure is significantly reduced, delivering 10-30 times less exposure than other 3D dental radiography systems.
Comfortable patient positioning and wheelchair accessibility make this unit patient-friendly. The system enables doctors to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in the office, helping reduce multiple visits, saving patient’s time and making the treatment more affordable.
