We believe that saving your natural tooth is often the best choice. The fascial tensegrity (tension + integrity) and sensory-motor integration between your teeth, brain, and the muscles in your jaw are lost when a tooth is extracted. Not even the most advanced bridges and implants can truly replace your natural tooth. Whenever possible, we recommend minimally invasive root canal options, such as regenerative techniques, to heal the tooth.
To save your tooth, our doctors use advanced technology in conjunction with holistic therapies and treatments. This is why we call ourselves Integrative Endodontics. Thanks to these techniques, our patients can experience pain relief without materials, medications, or treatments that could compromise their long-term health. Learn about our “wholistic” approach.
If your dentist or your child’s dentist recommends extracting a diseased, cracked, or injured tooth, ask if an endodontist can help save it with a root canal treatment or other procedure. Saving natural teeth is very important for healthy jaw and bite development in children, and these procedures also have a very high rate of success when performed properly.
To ensure the eradication of harmful bacteria during your root canal procedure, our doctors harness the power of light and sound (through the Fotona LightWalker® and GentleWave®). Seeing an endodontist who specializes in these procedures is key, as general dentists may not have the depth of training and experience necessary for an optimal result. Read insights from Dr. Val.
EndOzLase™ by Dr. Val
We perform a scope of endodontic treatments in conjunction with laser and ozone therapy inside the tooth. We call this signature process EndOzLase™, and we use it in both root canal treatment (RCT) and vital pulp therapy (VPT) procedures. We utilize laser treatment to thoroughly open and clean the dentinal tubules. The ozone gas, acting as a final disinfectant, penetrates the dentinal tubules and targets anaerobic bacteria that can not survive in oxygen-rich areas.
