Holistic root canal practices provide efficient and comprehensive care for dental patients thanks to innovative technology and materials, combined with the advanced training and experience of the doctors at Professional Endodontics (PE).
When it comes to a root canal, there are many holistic methods that can be used to ensure the procedure is as safe and healthy for the body as possible. These procedures use substances and materials that are biologically friendly, durable, and efficient. The following products and practices are generally used upon request during holistic root canal treatment at PE:
We realize that there are patients for whom conventional endodontic treatment and materials are simply not an option.
Biolase Waterlase Laser™
This tool precisely combines water and laser energy to remove hard and soft tissue and bacteria. It is a silent process that creates no heat or noise and is completely safe for use on children and adults. During a root canal, the laser is used to disinfect the targeted area. It can also be used to remove general decay and in soft tissue and surgical procedures.
Ozone Oxygen Therapy
Ozone production is a naturally occurring practice in the human body and the dental applications for ozone treatment date back to the 1930s. There are now hundreds of published research studies documenting the use of ozone in dental procedures. Today, holistic dental practices use ozone to disinfect and sterilize. Pathogens such as bacteria and viruses are especially vulnerable to ozone because they have little or no antioxidant enzymes. Because of this, ozonated water and pure oxygen/ozone gas can be safely used to disinfect and sterilize. Ozone is not associated with any harmful byproducts or side effects. Once it breaks down, ozone simply produces oxygen and water.
EndoCal 10 is a natural material used as a filling during root canals. EndoCal 10 is calcium oxide (CaO) and recent studies have shown that it is a safe alternative to other conventional substances to fill a root canal.
Holistic root canal practices ensure that the overall health of a patient is supported. They provide safe effective way of treating a root canal and providing reliable long-term solutions for oral health.
