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

Root Canal/Implant Treatments Scottsdale Arizona Endodontist Dr. Glen Doyon from Sequence Media on Vimeo.

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.

Dr. Glen Doyon, of the Center for Microsurgical Endodontics in Scottsdale, Arizona describes 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 problem 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.

What is Endodontics? Scottsdale Endodontist Dr. Glen Doyon

What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a specialty of Dentistry that deals with diseases of the dental pulp and its supporting structures. Endodontists are Dentists with special post-graduate training in this field. Endodontists are also experienced at finding the cause of oral and facial pain that has been difficult to diagnose.

Although General Dentists can perform Endodontic treatment, patients are often referred to an Endodontist when the case is complicated or more difficult than usual.

In order to understand Endodontic treatment, it helps to know something about the anatomy of a tooth. Teeth have several layers. The outside layer of the tooth is composed of a hard tissue called Enamel. Enamel is supported by an inner layer called Dentin, which has at its center a soft tissue known as the Pulp.

The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that are responsible for forming the surrounding Dentin and Enamel during tooth development. The pulp receives its nourishment supply from vessels which enter the end of the root. Although the pulp is important during development of the tooth, in an adult it is a remnant and is not necessary for function of the tooth. The tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it even after the pulp is removed.
