Buffalo Endodontist Explains the Benefits of the Apex Locator
As an experienced Buffalo Endodontist, I regularly use an Apex Locator.
- When you visit us, you’ll notice that we use numerous technologies to perform our procedures.
- One machine we use is the apex locator, which helps locate the tooth’s apex – the end of the root.
- The apex locator allows us to precisely identify – within half, or even a quarter of a millimeter – the exact end of the root.
- While we clean and fill the inside of the tooth, we depend on that precision to make sure we’re exactly where we want to be.
- The other benefit is that fewer x-rays are needed and treatment is more comfortable.
