At RR Dentistry, Dr. Ryan Robeson, Dr. Cory Roach, and Dr. Bart Smith believe they can only deliver a certain level of care and services to the highest degree possible on a limited number of procedures. The old saying of “good at all, master of none” is appropriate in this conversation. In the dental field, there are specialists in each area of dentistry who have isolated their offices to these specific procedures only. When one does a specific treatment all day long they or very often they become very efficient at that specific procedure. The areas of specificity when we are dealing with the nerve of each tooth (endodontics) or the gums and supporting bone and supporting structures (Periodontists and Oral and maxillofacial Surgeons) are some of these specialties. When a root canal is necessary if the individual doctors at RR Dentistry feel the expertise of a specialist is warranted, we will refer you to one of those specialists to ensure you are given the highest level of care you have grown accustomed to and deserve here at RR Dentistry.
What Are Bioceramics?
Bioceramics are ceramic materials designed specifically to be used in medical and dental implants. They replace hard tissue, including dental tissue, and can be bioactive (meaning they bond with living tissue and are gradually incorporated) or bioinert (meaning they do not interact with living tissue). Common bioceramics used in endodontics are alumina, which is highly resistant to wear, and calcium phosphate, which bonds to bone and promotes new bone growth.
How Do Bioceramics Affect Root Canal Treatment?
Thanks to bioceramic fillers and sealers, your root canal treatment can have an even better result! It will take fewer visits to complete than it used to, and the way the material bonds to the tooth gives it a higher chance of success. Just don’t take that as an excuse to skip out on your daily brushing and flossing!
