If you are missing a tooth, the best restorative solution is to replace that single tooth with a dental implant. It is a one-tooth solution to a one-tooth problem!
Our titanium implants can last for decades. In addition, we offer zirconia implants which are a great option for those who don’t want metal in their mouths.
Ask us which implant system best suits your needs for tooth replacement.
Without question, root canals are one of the “hottest” topics in holistic dentistry today. Dentists have been performing them for years and telling their patients that it’s a good health choice.
But here is the truth:
Root canals trap bacteria and/or dead nerve tissue inside the tooth and bone.
This dead tissue requires the body to mount an immune response so that the bone around the dead tooth doesn’t also die. If you have already had a root canal (or more than one), then it is best to understand that:
- This tooth may be a constant “tax” on your immune system.
- You may be healthier in the long run by removing the tooth and replacing it with a dental implant.
At Blodgett Dental Care, we still offer root canal therapy for those patients who find that it is the best solution for their health goals. For those who prefer to go this route, we make it clear that you should not plan on that tooth being in your mouth forever. The best option, of course, is to engage in preventative care so that your teeth stay healthy in the first place.
