As an endodontist, cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is becoming an invaluable part of practice for endodontics and placing implants. General practitioners know that this system allows to better diagnose and treat patients with more success than conventional clinical tests or 2-D radiographs, which would require 33% bone destruction to reveal even a fraction of what I’m able to see with CBCT.
The procedures listed here are the majority of uses of cone beam radiology in dentistry:
3-D observation of overall oral/facial bony characteristics, allowing easier diagnosis and placement of dental implants
Surgical guide fabrication for implant placement
3-D observation of teeth for endodontic diagnosis and treatment
Identification of inferior alveolar nerve and mental foramen location
Identification of the location of the maxillary sinus
Identification of the presence of odontogenic lesions
Highly recommend, staff was really helpful and got me ASAP for an emergency root canal. Dr explain everything step by step as he work on my tooth. Made the experience less scary and more relaxed. No pain what so ever as he worked on my tooth.

I had my 2nd Root Canal done on Monday this week by Dr. Karim Malek. I also had my first one done at this office over 3 years ago. both procedures went very smooth and comfortable and done pretty quick within less than an hour.

Awesome experience. I was kind of scared because I’ve never had my root canal done before, but everyone was so nice so I felt really comfortable. The procedure was quick and painless. Thanks to everyone specially Dr Malek. Would highly recommend this place.

I was referred to Dr. Malek by another dentist. I was very impressed by the office, the staff, and the doctor, himself. From the initial greeting, to the dental procedure, everything was done well. I had no pain at all. I'm a happy customer.

Perfect Root canal work: comfortable, no medication used afterwards, clean and precise, and tooth is back to its usual activity in a very short time.
