Triangle Orthodontics and General Dentistry uses apex locators in Durham and Raleigh, North Carolina, to provide you with a visual, in-depth look at your teeth. The device measures the precise length of your roots to ensure everything is captured in complete detail and can often indicate signs of root canal abnormalities. Electronic apex locators use electrodes that produce a circuit through the root canal to calibrate the location of the apex of the patient’s tooth. This is how we can determine the correct size of the space in the root canal, and we use that measurement as a guide for our root canal procedures.

With a better look inside your mouth, Farzana Rahman, DDS and our team can give you an accurate diagnosis and plan for a successful root canal. Call today for more info and make an appointment with our orthodontist at 919-968-0015.
