New Technologies

Patient positioned in CT scan unit.Our office employs the most advanced technologies available to ensure your comfort and the best results.  Dr. Levin helped develop digital radiography, endodontic microscopy, computerized record keeping, and new root canal filling materials and continue to serve as consultants to several  manufacturers:


CPoint: Our practice is the first in the United States to use a revolutionary new root canal filling material made out of contact lens polymers. Proven biocompatible and stable, this new method seals the canal by expanding after insertion. (more)


Limited Field Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT): Our practice is the first endodontic specialty practice in the U.S. to employ this new high resolution radiographic technology. The Kodak 9000 3D provides very detailed three-dimensional digital radiographs of the jaws to image areas of interest with greatly reduced radiation when compared to medium and full field of view CBCT units. (more)


Digital Panoramic Radiography: Our new Kodak 9000 3D equipment has two sensors, one dedicated to producing CBCT images and a second for surveying the entire mouth in a very high resolution panoramic radiograph.(more)


Intraoral Digital Radiography: All radiographs are taken with digital sensors, providing instant viewing on our computer monitors while significantly reducing radiation levels compared to film-based x-rays. This technology also allows for secure electronic transfer of medical information to our patient’s co-therapists. (more)


SAF: The SAF is a new endodontic cleaning, shaping and disinfection instrument system which greatly improves the efficacy of endodontic procedures. We were the first office in the U.S. to use this instrumentation technology. (more)


Operating Microscopes: Specialized operating microscopes are used during all phases of your endodontic treatment. Magnification and fiber optic illumination enable us to see small - often missed - details such as calcified canals and fractures. (more)


Electronic Medical Record: Your endodontic treatment records and radiographs are kept in our secure computer system for both instant retrieval and remote consultation. (more)
