National Root Canal Day
Today, May 10, 2023, is recognized as National Root Canal Day. The holiday was created in 2005 by Chris Kammer, a founding member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, to educate people about the importance of dental care. He’s also a known advocate for the oral-systemic approach to the prevention of disease.
I would like to celebrate this day with an opportunity to raise awareness about a gentler, less invasive approach that may help you avoid having to have root canals with Minimally-Invasive Biomimetic Dentistry.
Biomimetic Dentistry can restore a damaged or broken tooth in a minimally-invasive manner, helping to preserve the integrity of the tooth by minimizing the removal of tooth structure. This in turn reduces the risk of the tooth needing a root canal procedure.
At my dental practice in Lansing, MI, I am committed to providing restorative dental services that uphold our holistic and biologic wellness standards. I provide a biologic alternative to conventional crowns with biomimetic, minimally invasive restorations. Biomimetic Dentistry is a superior form of dentistry that’s been proven to provide better long-term oral health than traditional dental techniques. Dentists who have completed advanced biomimetic training are qualified to perform these unique and improved procedures. I have successfully completed extensive training, including ongoing continuing education course work to sharpen my skills and acquire the latest advancements in this special area of dentistry.
Preventing Root Canals
Biomimetic Dentistry is an important part of how I practice dentistry. As a Biomimetic Dentist, I use Biomimetic Dentistry techniques to treat teeth with large cavities thereby helping prevent root canals in badly decayed or infected teeth when possible. I strive to conserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible and preserve the structure and function of your natural teeth. I am fully committed to tooth-conserving dentistry using several biomimetic techniques, including removing as little actual tooth as possible when treating cavities and infections.
I use natural methods to fight the bacteria invasion, including Dental Ozone Therapy in our treatments that can hyper-oxygenate tissue, which promotes healing. With our minimally invasive procedures, you experience less pain and discomfort, longer-lasting restorations, and an overall healthier mouth.
The Benefits of Biomimetic Dentistry
Teeth that are restored with the biomimetic approach are at significantly lower risk for requiring endodontic therapy, can avoid crowns, and reduce the risk of needing extraction. Biomimetic Dentistry allows our team to restore teeth with a minimally invasive tooth structure restoration method that mimics the natural design of a tooth.
Biomimetic methods offer the incredible benefit of being a more cost-effective option than traditional restorative treatments. Approaching oral health with Biomimetic Dentistry dramatically reduces the need to remove tooth structure or grind them down for crowns. I truly care about your long-term oral health. Biomimetic Dentistry is very conservative, which means you have stronger, longer-lasting teeth throughout your lifetime. If you prefer biological or holistic dentistry to support your long-term oral health and wellness, the principles of Biomimetic Dentistry will be a good fit for you. I believe Biomimetic Dentistry is better dentistry and better for your overall health.
