Can I Avoid A Root Canal?

If you’re reading this, then odds are you’ve been told you need a root canal. As a biomimetic dentist I have extensive training in saving the unsavable and depending on the particulars of your case, I may be able to help you avoid a root canal. If you’re not a Deering Dental patient, I would highly recommend calling my office and asking to schedule a 2nd opinion consult at no charge.

After your consult, if it turns out that a root canal is still needed, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing you’re getting the right treatment and not just being charged for dental work that could have been avoided.

What exactly is a root canal?

So it’s clear that you are going to need a root canal, but what exactly is a root canal? Well, imagine you’re watching one of those dream home remodeling shows on TLC. They show the prospective buyers a home that has good bones, but the interior is in total disarray and will require a complete interior gut and remodel. That’s basically what a root canal is.

We go in, remove all the decay down to the very roots and then build it back up and restore your tooth to its former glory using biomimetic principles that leave you with a tooth that is nearly as strong as it was before decay ever set it. In some cases you may also need to have a crown placed on top to add additional strength and to ensure that your restored tooth last for as many years as possible.

What should I do next?

Call my practice in Palmetto Bay today. My team and I will make sure your root canal is done correctly and we can also create a plan to help you avoid more major dental work in the future. Just like with a house, a little work now can save you a lot of work and thousands of dollars in the future.
