Root Canal Preparation and Obturation

Keeping up with the latest tools and methods for canal preparation and obturation is essential for providing proper endodontic care. According to the newsletter Colleagues for Excellence, published by the American Association of Endodontics (AAE), canal preparation and obturation are the “two pillars of nonsurgical endodontics.” In short, canal preparation involves providing adequate access to the root canal for disinfecting solutions without error, while obturation is the process of properly filling and sealing the canal after treatment. Being that root canal treatment is the most common reason to visit an endodontist, canal preparation and obturation are absolutely vital to the trade. Our staff at Professional Endodontics have access to the latest tools and methods regarding these essential processes. By collaborating with Professional Endodontics, you gain an active participant in the AAE, who stands at the forefront of developing knowledge in this ever-changing and ever-progressing industry. Developments in Canal Preparation To prepare a canal for endodontic treatment, the canal space must be opened and shaped to match the patient’s proper canal structure. To do this, endodontists use microscopic instruments. Nearly two decades ago, the introduction of nickel-titanium (NiTi) instruments dramatically improved the success of canal preparation. This highly elastic, fracture- and [...]

Kelley Blue Book Awards Acura as Best Cost-To-Own Brand

Kelley Blue Book recognizes Acura for offering long-term reliability, low-cost ownership, and pricing below the competition. One of the most important things to consider when purchasing/leasing a new vehicle is ‘will it stand the test of time?’ Buying a new car is making a commitment that has the potential to affect your daily life for many years. Therefore, it’s more important than most people realize to research your next purchase while considering reliability-over-time as a significant factor. Though driving an Acura may not be as enticing as driving one of their more expensive luxury competitors, like Audi or BMW, Acura has established a reputation for quality and reliability for a reasonable price. The brand might not offer too much in flash, but when it comes to getting your money’s worth over the time of ownership, Acura leads the industry. In fact, Kelley Blue Book (KBB) has recently awarded Acura their KBB 5-year cost-to-own gold medal. Kelley Blue Book determines the 5-year cost-to-own award by examining the cost of a vehicle’s projected financing, insurance and state fees, fuel, and scheduled maintenance and repairs. In addition, Kelley Blue Book includes the vehicle’s projected depreciation in value over time. Acura has proven to [...]
