OUR FIRST PRIORITY: ELIMINATING YOUR TOOTH PAIN
Ballantyne Endodontics is a specialized dental practice where respected endodontic specialists Dr. Sonia Chopra, DDS and Dr. Mark Tadrissi, DDS treat conditions affecting the tooth pulp (the center of your teeth) and the tissue that surrounds the roots of your teeth. We are members of the American Association of Endodontists, American Dental Association and North Carolina Dental Society. Our expert team, trained and led by Dr. Chopra, includes an experienced endodontic staff.
MICROSCOPIC ENDODONTICS AND 3D CONE BEAM TECHNOLOGY
Ballantyne Endodontics is a practice where all dental procedures, no matter how simple, are done under an operating microscope for better visualization and outcome. We also use Cone Beam 3D technology – specialized imaging equipment which provides clear, three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
It’s like a GPS for the root and anatomy of the tooth.
Using these technologies allows for faster and more accurate diagnosis, better treatment plans, as well as enhanced ability to retain teeth otherwise slated for extraction.
Sometimes a traditional xray can be very limiting in its level of diagnosis. We use the 3D Cone Beam imaging in order to increase the visualization of the area we are treating. Often we can find undetected infection and canals, which may be a reason a previously treated root canal was failing. With Cone Beam use, we can find that etiology and treat that exact area so a root canal does not continue to fail and the tooth is saved.
Our goal is to make the most accurate diagnosis of your condition and treat it as quickly as possible. With simple tooth infections, we can generally complete a root canal in one visit. More complex situations may require an interim treatment followed by a second visit to complete the procedure. We will do what is best for the patient and best for the tooth, making your visits as brief and pain-free as possible.
From the feedback we receive, our patients praise the friendly and empathetic care they always receive from our practice. We work together as a team to ensure that every patient who walks in the door is given a warm welcome and that wait times are kept to a minimum. We are committed to making Ballantyne Endodontics the superior choice for root canal and other endodontic care.
