Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment

Nearly 85% of the American population has some stage of gum disease, medically, called Periodontal Disease. It is a painless disease, often unnoticed by patients until their teeth get loose and start shifting.

Surprisingly, many people know very little about it. This is going to change. As the body of evidence regarding the gum disease- systemic disease connection grows, we will see more and more reports about this in the media. Read more about Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment

Understanding Root Canal Treatment

The tooth is made up of 2 hard tissues the Dentin and the Enamel. The enamel is a rock hard outer shell of the tooth.  It is a transparent-whitish tissue that is 95% crystal and 5% collagen. Enamel is the hardest tissue in our bodies and is designed to withstand the abrasive nature of chewing.  Dentin makes up the inner core of the tooth as well as the roots.  Dentin is 50% crystal / 50% collagen and is a firm, flexible tissue similar to bone, but much denser.  It is made up of millions of microscopic tunnels where tiny extensions of the nerve reside.

The tooth is literally rocked out of the bone and ripped out. this caused incredible bone trauma and destruction. Read more about Gentle Tooth Extractions
