Our Technology

Endodontic therapy provides a predictable method to retain most teeth. The evolution of treatment has been greatly influenced by new technologies. With that being said, we have available to us many new devices and methods to make your care comfortable and successful. However, it is very important to remember that choosing the appropriate instruments and techniques for your treatment is why our years of clinical experience are so important.

STA™ Single Tooth Anesthesia System

The STA™ System technology utilizes computer-controlled local anesthesia delivery to enhance the injection process for both the dentist and the patient. Audio and visual confirmations make injections like the PDL more accurate and less stressful. STA increases confidence administering the Block - proper technique prevents needle deflection - improving the ability to inject into the Block the first time. Single tooth anesthesia means patients return to their routine without collateral numbing.

Digital Radiography

This technology utilizes sensors that instantly transmit the radiographic image of your tooth directly onto an operatory computer monitor. This system lowers the already low dosage radiation needed to take a conventional film by over 90%. Because these images are digital, they can be enlarged and enhanced to help in the diagnosis and treatment of your tooth. These images are archived in your dental record, and can also be e-mailed to your referring doctor.

Operating Microscopes

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.

Apex Locators

These are instruments that can electronically help determine where the end, or terminus, of the root is located. This is most critical in successful endodontic therapy.

Ultrasonics

These devices help in locating canals, removing obstructions from canals and in cleaning canals.

Nickel-titanium instruments

These instruments have helped to revolutionize endodontics. They have greater flexibility than the standard stainless instruments, allowing more efficient cleaning and shaping of the canals. These instruments are able to follow the different curves and bends that are encountered. This will allow for more complete removal of bacteria and any debris that accumulates in canals.

Electric motors and handpieces

These instruments are used along with the nickel-titanium files. Being electric, the motor’s speed and torque can be easily managed, resulting in more control in cleaning root canals.

Our Happy Customers

"What can I say about Dr. Sprague, he is simply THE BEST dentist in the Northern Hemisphere!!!!!!!!!!! What other dentist do you know of that can do a Root Canal and Crown within 1.5 hours on the same visit (Instead of going back 2-3 times)? His prices are reasonable and his work is absolutely flawless! He has even fixed crap dental work from two previous root canals done by two bad dentist. I really cant say enough about Doc Sprague! I love this guy and dont actually mind going to the dentist anymore (Outside of the cost of course). I am moving to Nevada in September, and will actually be coming back to Southern CA just to have him do my major dental work, that's how good he is! Thank you Dr. Sprague!!!!!!!"

Vivian

"Dr. Sprague is an amazing dentist. He is extremely caring and his biggest concern is his patients and their needs. He met me at his office after hours to replace a crown. His pricing is very fair and he is truly a genuine caring physician. I would honestly recommend him to care for anyone's dental needs."
