Common Questions

Should I be worried about x-rays?

No. X-rays will be necessary during your endodontic treatment, however we use advanced technology (digital radiography) which have 90 percent less radiation than conventional dental x-ray machinery.

Will the treatment be painful?

We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. If treatment is needed, we will inject a small amount of anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-3 hours.

What new technologies do you use?


In addition to digital radiography, we utilize special operating microscopes. Magnification and fiber optic illumination are helpful in aiding the doctor to see tiny details inside your tooth. Also, a tiny video camera on the operating microscope can record images of your tooth to further document the doctor’s findings.

CS 9300 System

Tessaro Endodontic Group is committed to providing you with the best care possible. As part of this commitment, we have included a 3D x-ray system to our dental practice. The benefits are:

  • Detailed Images for Improved Treatment
    • The CS 9300 is a 3D imaging system that revolutionizes our patient treatment: It helps us to diagnose more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. With precise, crystal-clear 3D images, this innovative new 3D system offers our team powerful insights into your dental regions of interest. This capability is essential for a wide range of diagnostics that, in turn, help us devise more accurate treatment plans and answer any questions you have about your care and treatment options.
  • Reduced Exposure to Radiation
    • Because our new 3D system allows technicians to target a precise area for exposure, you will be exposed to significantly less radiation other dental 3D units that lack this capability. The system combines speed, image quality and precision placement to dramatically reduce the occasional need for retakes. By using less radiation dose than conventional CT scans, our 3D system better helps us adhere to the ALARA Principle – or, “As Low As Reasonably Achievable” – which we follow to ensure we take every precaution to minimize your exposure to radiation when obtaining the necessary diagnostic images needed for your treatment planning.
