Scientific studies show that all root canals become infected over time. Our doctors have personally tested dozens of extracted root canals to determine the level of infection. 100% of them have come back with severe levels of infection ranging from anaerobes, viruses, amoebas and mold. It stands to reason that when dealing with this level of infection, every effort should be made to ensure that the infection is totally removed and that the body is left in a state best prepared for healing. The Safe Root Canal Removal technique used by Dr. Blodgett and Dr. Neish includes the use of laser therapies, ozone treatments, and “L-PRF” (Leukocyte and Platelet-Rich Fibrin; which is a concentration of your own blood’s immune cells and clotting factors). The entire extraction site, once filled with your own healing cells, will regenerate new healthy bone and gum tissue within approximately 3 months, much faster than with traditional grafting methods. If your goal is to have optimal health and longevity, then removing dead and infected teeth in a manner that supports bio-regeneration is the only way to go!
