Traditionally, root canal treatments were considered to be “saving” a tooth, however, a root canal, at its essence, creates a dead tooth that stays in your mouth to wreak havoc on your whole system by increasing your risk of developing chronic, systemic illnesses.
During our root canal extraction, the entire tooth is removed with immense care. Because the bone and roots are extremely fragile, they are more prone to breakage. In order to preserve the bone surrounding the tooth for a future implant, we carefully extract the infected tooth, and decontaminate the surgical area by removing the PDL (Periodontal ligament) and employing ozone therapy techniques. It is then replaced with the patient's bone or synthetic bone, and PRF is used to maximize and speed-up the healing process. In some cases, patients must wait several months until a biocompatible Zirconia implant can be put in place to ensure the site is fully healed.
