Calcium Oxide/Oxygen/Ozone Root Canals

Despite the fact that there are serious objections to the use of root canal treatment, the fact remains that even highly aware and health conscious patients can become subject to the conundrum of whether to lose a tooth or keep it. At Mercury Free Dental we offer calcium oxide root canals. The IAOMT recognizes the endodontic treatment of using calcium oxide as a root filling to minimizes the toxicity that develops in root treated teeth. It has disinfecting properties and has been used since the 1960’s as a safe alternative filling.

Oxygen/Ozone Therapy

Oxygen/Ozone Therapy in dentistry offers a non-surgical intervention for the treatment of osteonecrosis, infection, and inflammation of the head, neck and associated structures. Ozone is a naturally occurring oxidant and when exposed to biologic systems induce multiple biologic reactions. These biologic reactions result in a positive therapeutic response and outcome. Oxygen/Ozone is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic. With proper application these pathogenic life forms can be controlled and eliminated with no toxicity or side-effects.

TMJ Diagnosis and Treatment

To properly diagnose we do a comprehensive history and clinical examination. Next, we choose a diagnostic study best suited to the individual need of the patient. Treatment is also individualized to each patient and may include non-surgical splint therapy.

Nitrous Oxide

There are ways to make dentistry more pleasant for those that have fears or anxiety associated with going to the dentist. Nitrous Oxide is one solution which helps to calm nerves.

Nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas): An inhaled mixture of nitrous oxide and pure oxygen will mildly relax and sedate the patient. The patient is aware of what is going on but feels less anxious. It may be used in combination with music headphones to enhance the experience. At the end of the procedure, by breathing oxygen only, the patient leaves the office in a normal state. This works well with children also.
