About Riverbend Endodontics

Who We Are

Located in Bettendorf, Iowa, Dr. Duane Van Nieuwenhuyzen and his staff offer exceptional endodontic care using the most advanced technology, ensuring excellence in diagnostics and treatment. We understand the importance of “from the heart” customer service and will always strive to exceed your expectations.

Advanced Technology

Using the most advanced techniques available today, we can perform root canals, treat endodontic injuries and perform endodontic surgery with precision and comfort. We utilize state-of-the-art technology, including 3D digital imaging, to ensure you are receiving the specialized care you deserve.

Cone Beam CT

Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of endodontic disease. This allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular dental x-rays). Cone-beam CT technology allows us to provide innovative, high-quality, patient care.

Digital Imaging

Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is minimal. Riverbend Endodontics utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 90 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information.

The doctor carefully chooses which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.

Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to your dentist or insurance company.

Surgical Microscopes

The introduction of the surgical microscope has revolutionized the field of Endodontic Microsurgery. We have invested in surgical microscopes that provide unparalleled magnification and illumination for our surgical procedures.

Our success depends on us being able to see the smallest of details – you cannot treat what you cannot see. In addition, we have incorporated the use of high resolution cameras that allow us to record our procedures with clarity and detail.

Ultrasonic and Rotary instrumentation

Riverbend Endodontics uses the most advanced methods available to clean and disinfect the root canal systems.
