Root Canal Apex Locator

Dentistry NW use this special computer to help locate the tip of your tooth during a root canal. It is a very precise measuring device that aids in accurately removing infection while minimizing post-operative discomfort.

This high-tech device uses a light that identifies the canal better so we can clear the dead or damaged root. This procedure makes it possible to save your natural, tooth structure. All of this is done more comfortably and quicker than ever before.

Root canals, or endodontic treatments, don’t need to be primitive anymore. Many doctors still use hand filing to clear the damaged root canal. State-of-the-art technology has made this procedure more comfortable and precise.

By electronically locating the exact location of the canal and using precise electronic devices to remove the diseased or damaged tissue, we can perform the procedure quicker and more comfortably.

Dentistry Northwest is hands-down the best dental care I have had in my entire life. Not only are they professional, they are friendly and I feel like family there. Everybody is just fabulous and they take the best care of my family.
One of the things that I appreciate the most is the sense of collaboration in my dental care. My hygienist always has information for me and often times something actually printed for me to take. Dr. Smith is just a character and I enjoy visiting with him if nothing else!
I am older and have had questionable things done to my teeth over the years. Dr. Smith and his staff have brought much of this up-to-date and keep my mouth, teeth and gums as healthy as possible. They are simply the best

I have enjoyed my experience with this dental office for 30 years. As the practice has changed hands, the staff, dentists, and office has remained at an exemplary standard. They hire the best, and perform top tier at industry standards. I enjoy their positive, upbeat style of making the client feel welcomed and relaxed. They always go the extra mile. I enjoy my experience always.

These people (especially Brenda) have been tracking my teeth for many years. I appreciate the thoughtful way they do just what is necessary, and at the right time. They even are careful to avoid unnecessary costs.
