X-Rays and Digital Imaging

Your dentist may send one or more x-rays for us to review prior to your initial consultation. Although these x-rays are helpful in diagnosing your treatment, one or more digital x-rays will be taken at your consultation appointment to provide a more precise view of the tooth. Our practice is outfitted exclusively with digital x-ray equipment. These digital x-rays are also utilized during the treatment. Rest assured that any x-rays taken at our office are critical to your treatment. You may also be assured that our low dose digital x-rays are designed to limit radiation exposure.


In addition to digital x-rays Modern Endo of Napa is also equipped with Dentsply – Sirona Cone Beam CT Scan 3-dimentional digital imaging system.  This provides an unparalleled diagnostic view.


Dr. Tigrett utilizes the microscope throughout every dental examination andd procedure. The microscope provides optimum visibility and illumination to give you the best treatment outcome possible. Microscopes are essential in providing endodontic treatment at the highest level, and they have numerous clinical benefits:


  • The microscope allows for the use of smaller instruments and more precision during treatment. Conservation of tooth structure is the key to the best, longest-lasting outcomes.
  • The increased magnification of the microscope allows Dr. Tigrett to minimize the size of the operative site, thereby minimizing healing time.
  • The microscope allows Dr. Tigrett to identify root canals and locate problems such as cracks and root fractures.
  • The use of the microscope increases efficiency and often saves you from additional and more complex procedures.

TDO Software

Paperless Office

We use TDO Software as it is considered the best endodontic software available. It is used to manage all patient records and information and has comprehensive modules that make our office paperless, a great convenience for our patients and referring dentists.  The website integration allows our patients to securely access the site to complete the medical history and consent forms online before their appointment.

The software allows our referring dentists to make referral and receive their patients’ reports and imaging through secured HIPAA compliant portal right after the patient is seen.  This technology enables us to diagnose and treat our patients more efficiently and to communicate more effectively with both the patient and referring doctor that is secured and HIPAA compliant.

Modern Endo Napa Cone Beam CT Scanner

Our Dentsply Sirona 3D CT Scanner allows us to take high-quality three-dimensional images of your condition, thereby providing you with more precise and more effective treatment.  Cone Beam CT scans are only taken when necessary, and the benefits of them are innumerable:


  • Three-dimensional Cone Beam CT scans allow Dr. Tigrett to better detect, locate, and treat endodontic conditions, such as abscess, resorption, and complex anatomy.
  • Digital imaging utilizes 80% less radiation than a traditional x-ray, but yields far more usable information.
  • Unlike a conventional dental x-ray, a Cone Beam CT scan can distinguish the differences among various tissues, such as bone, teeth, nerves, and soft tissue.
  • The Cone Beam CT scan will help Dr. Tigrett give you the most accurate diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment recommendations.  These scans often yield information that helps you avoid unnecessary treatment.
  • A Cone Beam CT scan is a cost-effective way of identifying a wide range of dental issues. The efficiency of a Cone Beam CT scan allows for less expensive and more efficient treatment.

Digital Photograph
