This may have been true in the past, but with modern technology, root canals at Martha’s Vineyard Endodontics are relatively painless. In fact, they relieve pain more than they cause it. Thanks to new technologies, getting a root canal is comparable to getting a filling.
There is no scientific evidence available to support the claim that illness can result from having a root canal. This myth originated several decades ago when a physician claimed that root canals could cause trapped bacteria to be released into the bloodstream and make patients sick. This is an outdated claim that is not supported by any current medical research. The American Dental Association continues to support root canals as a safe and effective treatment option.
Natural teeth will always feel and function better than prosthetics. Root canals at Martha’s Vineyard Endodontics have a high success rate and have given millions of patients the chance to keep their natural teeth. Unlike prosthetics, real teeth don’t cause difficulty eating or speaking, nor do they allow for bone deterioration. Natural teeth both look and feel better while keeping the jaw healthy.
The CS 8100 3D extraoral imaging system gives our practice the ability to capture both high quality 2D and 3D digital images, all while limiting dose exposure, which means a safer and quicker dental visit for our patients. Digital images are available for viewing almost immediately and some images can even be captured in as little as seven seconds, using 50 percent less radiation than standard image capture.
The true-to-life, high resolution images that 3D technology provides means that Dr. Gear has the most accurate view of patients’ anatomy for improved diagnostic, treatment planning and surgical predictability. Additionally, the CS 8100 3D provides more services in-office, reducing Dr. Gear need to refer patients to outside imaging centers: That means fewer visits and faster treatment for you.
As patient well-being is always our top concern, the innovative patient-centric design of the CS 8100 3D helps us obtain high-quality images while always taking your comfort into consideration. The open design of the CS 8100 3D makes exams more comfortable and less stressful for patients; the unit can also capture images whether a patient is seated or standing, ensuring that you’re at ease no matter what.
