Why choose a board-certified endodontist?
Every dentist completes dental school to become licensed and begin practicing, but some opt to pursue further schooling within a particular specialty. Each program focuses on one of nine core competencies and requires an additional two to three years of program-specific residency. Board-certified endodontists demonstrate exceptional knowledge and skill, dedication to their continued professional growth, and a commitment to providing the highest quality of patient care. Their certification means that they not only have reached the highest level of education in endodontics but also provide enhanced techniques in their care of patients.
In other words, the work you need on your teeth is work that our specialists perform with precision day after day after day.
Dr. Maupin tirelessly leads the team in his efforts to learn about and incorporate the latest technology into our practice.
Currently, we utilize:
The Digital Office
With The Digital Office, we have eliminated almost all paper from our office, making it completely digital, more efficient, and environmentally friendly. This state-of-the-art computer software allows our team to communicate with you and with referring dentists through highly protected, fully encrypted internet communication.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
In order to provide his patients with the safest, most modern diagnostic care, our team uses Cone Beam Computed Tomography, or CBCT. In fact, Dr. Maupin contributed to CBCT research and is extremely familiar with its advantages. An advanced type of digital radiography, CBCT provides 3D images of structures beneath the teeth and gums, including unprecedented views of teeth roots, internal canals, and bone structure. It is generally used for evaluation prior to surgery and for difficult diagnostic cases. CBCT drastically reduces radiation exposure while providing the necessary information for more targeted and effective endodontic treatment.
Surgical Operating Microscope
With extensive training in microsurgical and microscopic techniques, Dr. Maupin’s dental office is well-equipped with surgical operating microscopes and uses only the top-of-the-line Zeiss ProErgo. With these incredible technological tools, our team is able to preserve more of your natural tooth structure while identifying tooth canals, locating problems such as cracks and root fractures, and providing the highest level of care available to you.
The X-Guide is a revolutionary new system that extends the capabilities of the cone beam system for simplified and more accurate implant procedures. The X-Guide is a 3D navigation system that delivers interactive, turn-by-turn guidance which allows our doctors to improve the precision and accuracy of the implant. Currently, our office is the only one in Lubbock that utilizes the X-Guide.
You’ll love the rest of our team, too.
The entire Maupin Endodontics family is dedicated to making your experience as comfortable, efficient, and effective as possible.
