Root canal removal: a holistic treatment option for infected teeth

Holistic Option for Root Canal Removal in Fort Lauderdale Area

Modern dental technologies have dramatically improved how we can treat and save decayed, diseased, or damaged teeth. However, there are times when teeth become so badly infected or compromised that the only two viable options are to have root canal therapy performed or to have the tooth extracted. However, root canal treatment can result in a prolonged infection in the tooth that can eventually enter the bloodstream. At Go Natural Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, holistic dentist Dr. Yolanda Cintron offers comfortable, gentle tooth extractions and root canal removal for patients who are concerned about the impact that root canal-treated teeth may have on their health.

The issues with root canals

While this approach effectively eliminates the pain associated with the tooth because the nerve has been removed, the problem is that many patients have intricate canal structures that cannot be completely disinfected during root canal treatment. The end result is a lingering bacterial infection deep within the tooth that can ultimately enter the bloodstream, carrying the infection and corresponding inflammation to other parts of the body such as the brain and heart.

Removing problematic teeth like this, gets rid of the source of infection, and a natural-looking, biocompatible tooth replacement such as:
