Does the thought of having a root canal make you cringe? Well you are not alone – an advanced specialist in microscopic Endodontics and microsurgery – Dr. Fanny Yacaman, shows us how to help personalize treatment and technology has really improved the health of her patients. An Endodontist is a specialist in the industry that diagnoses and treats the pulp or nerves as the patients calls it – the diseases and the surrounding tissues of the tooth. The patient will say I have a tooth ache or I have a tooth infection or my gums are swelling or I have pain with cod hot sweet or something with chewing would wake me up at night and I need to take pain medications to relive the pain or sometime the whole face is swelling and I have a pimple in my gums.
Root canal therapy has changed over the years; today procedures are virtually painless and more efficient – resulting in a more positive patient experience. My practice is extremely personalized – that is the key of a good treatment and this together with a use of the microscope in Endodontics the attest magnification and illumination with digital x-rays and instrumentation that we have now, this may facilitate the retreatment outcome. With the microscope now we can find tooth cracks that were impossible to see before and we can find extra canals it the same root however it is important to understand that faster doesn’t mean better there is nothing that will substitute a trained clinician and the time we take for each specific procedure the steps of a root canals as I mentioned in one procedure or 2 procedure – we need to have a good diagnosis and a biological and mechanical cleaning and a filling of the root canals – we must understand that nothing is better than keeping our own teeth – we have to remind our patients that our teeth are part of our mouth and our body – having good oral health will contribute towards our overall health towards our body. It is important that our patients also see their dentists 2 times a year, and after the root canal they must have restoration and of course brushing and flossing 3 times a day is extremely important to prevent future problems. I am always scared to go to the dentist and I usually have pains and I am never calm and Dr. Yacaman was very clam and soothing and I had a really nice experience with her. Dr. Fanny Yacaman knows that when it comes to your dental health you want the best endodontic treatment available.
