Mercer Island Endodontics is a state-of-the-art facility offering endodontic treatments you won't find anywhere else in the area. Dr. Maureen Swift uses an operating microscope for all root canal procedures, insuring a positive result and instilling peace of mind in her patients. Dr. Swift utilizes digital radiographs and wireless radiograph technology to provide safe, high quality digital imaging.
An operating microscope is used to help Dr. Swift see details while performing microsurgery. While that's a great benefit, operating microscopes also help keep things clean and disinfected, using easy-to-clean parts that reduce cross-contamination in the operating room.
NOMAD Wireless X-rays
As if our digital x-rays didn't make our radiography a breeze, we also offer wireless radiography for our patients. Using wireless sensors we can now take great, detailed radiographs of your mouth without any hassle of wires or cables. Simply pop the sensor in your mouth, sit still a moment, and we'll have a detailed map of your teeth.
Intra-oral imaging gives you a detailed view of your mouth. Words come to life when you can see what we see.
Visually transferring specific conditions in your mouth to a computer screen brings clarity simply not possible with a traditional mouth mirror. Specialized hand-held wands quickly capture the details of your teeth and gums. In fact, even small cracks that often lead to broken teeth appear vividly, just with the click of a button.
As an added benefit, dental insurance benefits frequently pay easier with the visual proof of a captured image in our records.
Digital sensors capture detailed x-ray images with a fraction of the traditional exposure.
Technological advancements in x-ray technology provide multiple benefits, from safety to improved treatment outcomes.
