Root Canal Therapy in Beverly Hills, California, is an excellent investment in your smile and the rest of you! Generally (with the notable exception of impacted wisdom teeth), endodontic specialists like our own Dr. Fanny Yacaman at Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry will want to preserve natural teeth. Dental extractions or removing badly infected or severely damaged teeth should be a “last resort” procedure.
Tooth replacement is largely more time-consuming (and we all know time is money!). The process of replacing teeth also carries with it a heftier price tag. Moreover, as exceptional as tooth replacement has become with modern dental implants, there is still no lab-made tooth that is superior in form and function to a natural and healthy tooth.
Endodontists like Dr. Yacaman have extra training and clinical experience beyond dental school in procedures designed to treat deep decay, inflammation, and infection at the center of the tooth (its pulp chamber). Due to this specialized training and expertise, Dr. Yacaman pinpoints anatomical anomalies and other challenges to successful root canal therapy (RCT) proactively. In doing so, she is prepared to address those unique challenges. This increases the odds of a tooth being successfully treated with RCT.
For instance, other dentists often refer their patients to us after an RCT-treated tooth has failed to heal properly. Pain, swelling, and other undesirable symptoms may persist. Upon accessing the tooth, Dr. Yacaman may find that some teeth with narrow, curved canals or other anatomical complexities were not treated during the initial RCT. Patients can avoid the need for retreatment by partnering with a specialist in root canal therapy from the outset.
Additionally, Dr. Yacaman is trained in other surgical endodontic procedures outside of non-surgical RCT. So, even if other dentists have told you there is no way to “save” your tooth, that may not be the case! Patients travel to Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry from around the globe to benefit from Dr. Yacaman’s skills. Depending on your needs, she may recommend surgical treatment such as apicoectomy or “root-end resection” to address persistent inflammation or infection at the end of the tooth.
Dr. Yacaman’s global clientele also benefits from our in-house prosthodontist, Dr. Frank Vidjak, and our onsite dental lab. These additional capabilities mean that the restored visible part of the restored tooth will look like a natural, healthy, and unaltered tooth. The dental crowns and other restorations designed by Dr. Vidjak and our onsite lab are also built to last – they are as durable and strong as they are esthetically pleasing!
