Great News, We No Longer Have An Endodontist
As some of you may know, our in-house endodontist recently moved on.
For those not familiar, an endodontist is a dentist who specializes in root canals – these are last resort procedures to salvage a tooth where an infection has reached the nerve. If a root canal fails, the remaining option is an implant, an expensive procedure requiring months of healing. Over the years, my husband Peter and I have strived to offer comprehensive services, hoping to save you the hassle of seeking specialist procedures elsewhere.
The departure of our endodontist may seem inconvenient, but I’m genuinely excited about this change.
Almost two years ago, we committed to becoming a 100% biomimetic dental practice. After immersing myself in the scientific literature and completing a year-long master course under one of the pioneers of this revolutionary process, I am convinced that biomimetic dentistry far surpasses conventional methods taught in dental schools. If our mission is to offer you the best dental care possible, biomimetic dentistry is the only ethically sound choice.
So, how does losing our endodontist – and no longer providing root canals in-house – benefit you?
Before switching to biomimetic dentistry, we had an endodontist come in six days a month, and they were always busy. However, a curious shift occurred after we embraced biomimetic dentistry. Our endodontist’s schedule started thinning out. Initially, we chalked it up to a fluke, but the trend of fewer root canals persisted. We scaled back our endodontist’s schedule, first to four, then to two days a month, but even that wasn’t enough to keep her busy. So, in May, we amicably decided to part ways – simply because we had so few root canals left for her to do.
Incredibly, by adopting biomimetic dentistry, we are preserving more teeth and helping our guests sidestep the need for root canals altogether. To quantify, this year we have diagnosed 79% fewer root canals than in the past. Teeth that would normally require a root canal using standard dental practices are now being saved with biomimetic restorations. I know if there’s one thing you’d like to avoid, it’s a root canal, so it’s heartening to report that Deering Dental can offer a 79% lower likelihood you’ll need one.
In the meantime, we are exploring options to provide in-house root canal treatments again at some point in the future. However, as a dentist whose goal it is to maintain and preserve your natural teeth as long as possible, I find it thrilling that so few of my guests now require them.
