Cracked Tooth Symptoms and Treatment, With Dr. Glenn Doyon of Scottsdale, Arizona

Cracking a tooth can happen by an accident or simply by use.  It is very common to crack a tooth and depending on the severity, there are different treatment options available.

Dr. Glenn Doyon, of the Center for MicroSurgical Endodontics in Scottsdale, Arizona says that the classic symptoms of a cracked tooth are pain to cold or biting.  A minor crack can be solved with a filling or crown.  If the tooth is cracked badly enough that the pulp is involved, root canal must be performed to get rid of the pain.  Sometimes, Dr. Doyon says, a tooth can be cracked so badly it needs to come out and be replaced and all of these assessments are done through a thorough examination.

Following treatment, Dr. Doyon says that the tooth needs to be restored with a general dentist to get it capped.  The tooth will need to be followed over time to make sure it doesn't propagate.

Dental Sedation Methods, With Dr. Glenn Doyon of Scottsdale, Arizona

Dentists now have wonderful, adequate anesthetics available to take care of any anxiety issues patients may have.  When patients come into Dr. Glenn Doyon's endontic practice, the Center for MicroSurgical Endodontics in Scottsdale, Arizona, depending on their anxiety level, he has several options available.

Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is an adjunct to the anesthetics he uses.  Oral drugs take the patient's mind off of things and they won't remember the procedure.  IV sedation is used on highly anxious patients.

Patients recover easily with IV or oral sedation, says Dr. Doyon and while they may still be a bit drowsy at home following the procedure, by the next day, things are back to normal.

All forms of sedation are very safe and Dr. Doyon says that with IV sedation, it has a titrated effect that can be adjusted based on the patient's needs.  Patients are still responsive, as they are still conscious without any anxiety.

Implant Treatments After Root Canal, Featuring Scottsdale, Arizona Endodontist Dr. Glen Doyon

Dr. Glen Doyon, of the Center for Microsurgical Endodontics in Scottsdale, Arizona talks about how far dentistry has come by the advent of teeth implants.  When a patient undergoes root canal, sometimes saving a tooth is not an option, as either the tooth has been knocked out or is too badly damaged from trauma or decay.  There is now a fallback position of a dental implant when a tooth needs to be removed. 

While each patient differs, a crown can be placed the same day and time of the root canal or because of the bone quality, time must be spent letting the bone heal and then a crown is placed some time thereafter.  Dentistry has come a long way in that dental implants can restore a smile and replace a tooth, almost as good as new.

What is the Purpose of Root Canal Treatment? Scottsdale Arizona Endodontist Dr. Glen Doyon

Dr. Glen Doyon, of the Center for Microsurgical Endodontics in Scottsdale, Arizona discusses the root canal procedure as the first treatment option for a damaged tooth. As blood vessels and nerves have no function after a tooth is made, there are times when this does cause a probles and when it does, the inside of the tooth needs to be cleaned out of damaged tissue.

Root canal is the preferred treatment, as saving the tooth is always best. Sometimes, however, a tooth implant is a better option when the tooth cannot be saved. Dr. Doyon performs both procedures and in doing so, confidently makes the appropriate determination as to course of treatment for the patient.
