How Can I Avoid Root Canals?

The thought of a root canal or crown can be intimidating for many people. To help you avoid having to undergo such procedures, we use the latest tools and techniques to more effectively rebuild a damaged tooth’s structure. Biomimetic dentistry uses flexible materials that can bend and flex with your natural tooth and better protect against future damage.

The word “biomimetic” means to mimic nature, and these tooth-colored materials can create a more natural aesthetic than the bulky metallic fillings that were frequently used only 10-20 years ago. Using the innovative materials of biomimetic dentistry, we are also able to save and strengthen more of your original tooth structure. Metal fillings can actually allow bacteria to re-enter the tooth cavity, cause more decay, and even lead to tooth loss. Conversely, biomimetic fillings can prevent these concerns, ultimately helping you avoid the need for a root canal, dental crown, or dental implant.

As a certified biomimetic instructor, I was trained at the Alleman-Deliperi Center for Biomimetics. This specialized training has provided me with the skills and expertise to address chipped, cracked, worn, or decaying teeth with a conservative approach that can save you from needing more extensive dental work in the future.
