Alternative to Root Canals
Root canal therapy is a popular endodontic procedure that is used to save a tooth from severe infection or decay. A root canal involves drilling into the center of the tooth and removing the diseased portion of the tooth. In most cases, the tooth is then too weak to withstand everyday dental function and thus requires a dental crown. While a root canal procedure may be necessary in certain instances, a trained biomimetic dentist can often offer an alternative solution. In fact, biomimetic dentists report over a 90 percent reduction in the number of root canals their patients receive, which means fewer invasive procedures and more preservation of healthy tooth structure.
Root canals are often performed when the inner chamber of the tooth is compromised. Unfortunately, this can occur because of substantial decay, an unexpected injury or when excessive amounts of healthy tooth structure were removed to place a crown. In biomimetic dentistry, we can often help the patients avoid a dental crown in the first place, which eliminates the need for a root canal and even prevents the cycle of tooth death. Biomimetic dentistry is a holistic approach and a welcome alternative to traditional restorative methods such as crowns and root canal therapy.
