One of the advanced tools used by our endodontists is an electronic apex locator. This device works by measuring and comparing the resistance of tooth structure and tooth support tissue to provide a visual and audible signal. This indicates precise root length so that Dr. Jeffrey Javelet and Dr. Erik Stalder can plan more effective treatments. The electronic apex locator is extremely accurate and, in many cases, can minimize the need for extra X-rays during to your treatment.
