Education & Prevention
Our goal is to help our patients make a truly informed treatment decision. We are equipped to obtain all information possible to aid in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. We pride ourselves on individualized patient treatment, providing each guest with our undivided, personalized attention. You will see that at Santa Fe Endodontics your utmost comfort in all areas is considered.
Communication is at the core of a healthy relationship. At Santa Fe Endodontics, we make every effort to insure that the patient and referring doctor are fully informed and involved in all treatment planning discussions. We document every case with superb microscopic imaging of the treatment and tooth in question.
Infection control in our Santa Fe Endodontic office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
We have also invested into the OSO Pure water purification system to provide bacteria-free treatment water for our patients.
Training & Expertise
As your endodontic specialists, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern endodontic office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
We are the FIRST endodontic office in Santa Fe that was equipped with Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging, which provides a 3-dimensional view of the teeth and surrounding tissues in the area to be treated. This invaluable technology will aid us in making the best and earliest possible diagnosis. This is especially helpful in cases where a root canal has already been performed and Root Canal Retreatment may be indicated. Also, for cases where there is a history of mild symptoms over a period of time (several weeks to months) we may be able to identify a problem area that would otherwise go unnoticed.
We can readily identify areas of early infection at
the root tips. CBCT also allows as
us to visualize the surrounding tissue reactions in areas such as the sinuses
encompassing upper teeth and the nerve bundles in the vicinity of lower
teeth. This can be critical in making treatment decisions when an Apicoectomy or Root Canal Surgery is being considered.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.
