Root Canal Treatment Mexico
Root canal therapy has been a widespread practice in general dentistry for years. In the dental world, there exists a great amount of contention regarding the overall competence of root canal therapy for the treatment of deep infection. Dr. Amy, a dental professional of Excellence Dental, understands the multitude of reasons why both dentists and patients question the legitimacy of this treatment. Executed in the traditional manner, there are undeniable issues that can arise from the standard root canal procedure.
It’s important to understand that a person’s oral structure contains more than just teeth, gums, and the roots that connect the teeth to the jawbone. Miles of dentinal tubules span from the roots of teeth into the dentin. Dentinal tubules are miniscule areas of the mouth in which bacteria travel from an infected root canal. Traditional root canal therapy homes in on the core of the infection, which lies in pulp tissue. The concept behind this standard practice is that the removal of infected tissue (along with the root, nerve, and blood vessels in the root canal) and the subsequent cleansing and sealing of the canal, will fully exterminate infection and any remaining bacteria. Simply put, this is not the case.
The main complication with this ideology is that the natural shape and structure of the tooth’s core (primarily dentinal tubules) make it virtually impossible to eradicate any bacteria efficiently using a “bleach” liquid solution. The incompetence of this approach leads to lingering infection beneath the surface, which persists long after the tooth has been restored.
Dr. Amy’s approach to endodontics is aimed at simultaneously allowing her patients to keep their natural teeth and their overall health for a lifetime. Root canal therapy is executed in exceptional cases after a thorough discussion of both the advantages and disadvantages of treatment has taken place. Patients learn about efficient alternatives and are provided with full details into the way Dr. Amy performs successful root canal therapy for patients.
When root canal therapy is performed in her office, Dr. Amy utilizes diagnostic planning with precision digital radiography. This phenomenon allows for an accurate view of the tooth structure. When all areas of the tooth are clearly visible, treatment may then take place by using ozonated water to irrigate the canals after the removal of infected tissue. Before moving forward with the final sealant, Dr. Amy treats the affected canal with ozone gas and situates a temporary seal over the tooth. The tooth will remain concealed for a few weeks, during which time the ozone gas can fully permeate the dentinal tubules, thereby eliminating any remaining bacteria before the canal is completely sealed off.
Root canal therapy is not always Dr. Amy’s preferred method of restorative care. In some cases, the best treatment choice is the removal of the tooth. Throughout the consultation and evaluation phase Dr. Amy collaborates with each patient to resolve which treatment option is suitable based on his or her specific needs.
