Microscope Enhanced Dentistry
Surgical Zeiss Microscope
At our office we want you to receive the best treatment. Using the Microscope allows us to have the best visualization to treat you.
What are the benefits of using the Microscope in dentistry?
By using a microscope, the dental procedures can be done more accurately because the microscope has a shadow-free light. Many of the procedures are done faster because the visibility. Working with the microscope also improves ergonomics.
It is a fascinating to watch teeth, which are only 1 sq. cm in size, be magnified to fill an entire TV screen!!!
The microscope is used to magnify almost all the procedures that are routinely done by your dentist. There is a great improvement of care when the dentistry can be done under the magnification of the microscope.
With the use of the microscope, the treatment of Root Canal treatment can be improved. The microscope allows for the dentist to see the tiny canals, which lessens the chance of a Root Canal failure. Failed Root Canal Treatment is a complicated procedure and removing broken files deep inside the roots of the teeth can be very challenging, but with the help of the microscope, the procedure will have a much higher success when done under the microscope.
When preparing a tooth for a crown, the margins of the teeth are much more precise and neater when using the microscope, which allows for a better fit and a longer life with less complications or issues.
Using the microscope enhances our visibility which allows us to better treat you, our valued patient.

It is important to make sure you, the patient, receive the best treatment. At our office we have the Cone Beam technology which helps us do just that. The Cone Beam provides a complete view of the inside of the mouth. By having this complete view, it prevents any misdiagnosis and allows us to have an accurate treatment for you, the patient. As well as using less radiation with the digital x-rays.
What is a Cone Beam?
Receiving the best treatment for your teeth is very important. Dr. Rowen’s office has and uses the best of technology and is using Cone Beam X-Ray Imaging. Cone Beam is used for 3 -D Dental Imaging for dental applications. It is the latest development in technology. It is different than regular x-rays because the Cone Beam is able to show areas in the mouth that are not normally seen by a traditional X-ray. It provides high-definition, digital imaging with less radiation to the patient and a typical scan time of only 8.5 seconds.
Implant and Oral Surgery
Using the Cone Beam will optimize implant treatment, placement, and selection of the right implant type, size, and location prior to the surgery. Having the precise, cross-sectional slices of any needed location in the maxilla (upper jaw) or mandible (lower jaw) will provide Dr. Rowen with the exact information that he will need to have a successful surgery. These 3-D images will also assist in determining if a sinus lift or bone grafting is necessary in areas of with insufficient bone for the implant process.
The Cone Beam will provide a 3-D view of critical structures that are needed for a complete and thorough analysis of TMJ. This will assist Dr. Rowen in having a complete analysis and diagnosis of bone morphology, joint space, and function. All of this is essential to TMJ treatment and care. The 3-D data gives an airway assessment, which will determine if your airways are restricted, allowing Dr. Rowen the knowledge to make sure you have the correct treatment plan.
Many patients are concerned about radiation. Radiation is one of the many forms of energy that is released by the sun and other elements in nature. Through scientific discoveries, we can use this energy to make it possible to see through matter at a certain level. The energy is used in many ways to discover different kinds of diseases and try to cure them. The Cone Beam technology also uses radiation but not at a high level. It produces the 3-D images that are better than the traditional X-ray images and can help provide the dentist with the knowledge to provide you, the patient, with a more accurate treatment plan.
