Cone Beam Computed Tomography – CBCT

Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography – or CBCT) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of endodontic disease. This allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular dental x-rays). With the addition of cone-beam CT technology to our office, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality, patient care.

Cone beam computed tomography is an innovative medical imaging technique that provides endodontists with three-dimensional views of the patient. In certain cases, CBCT greatly enhances the endodontist’s ability to diagnose, evaluate, treat and care for patients. During a CBCT scan, the machine rotates around the patient, capturing images using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These images are then used to construct a 3-D representation of the patient’s teeth and jaws.

COVID-19 PANDEMIC OFFICE PROTOCOL:

During the COIVD-19 Pandemic and as per ADA and Mass Department of Health and Safety, our office is closed until further notice to elective dental/endodontic care. During this time, we may be able to accommodate some urgent dental emergencies after a telephone interview. Our office manager and front desk is taking telephone calls and trying to triage patients with acute pain. For safety of our dental staff, patients are triaged for symptoms of COVID-19 prior to their arrival at our office. Please call the office at 416-781-5251 for more information about this protocol. Note: Office appointments may take longer to allow for a more rigorous protocol of disinfection of all surfaces between patients following the CDC and OSHA standards for our collective safety. At York Hill Endodontics, we are committed to the highest standards of safety during your care under our supervision. When you arrive to the office, you will be asked to wash your face and hands before filling out forms. If you feel sick or are under the weather, we ask you to stay home until your symptoms are fully resolved. We are unable to treat patients with signs and symptoms of a cold, coughing, fever, sneezing, and other manifestations of an upper respiratory tract infection until those symptoms are fully resolved. We appreciate your understanding during this pandemic and our vigilance to provide the safest possible care to our patients and staff.
