In traditional dentistry, treating root canal infections are done by removing infected tissues in the visible root canal and filling them with inert gutta percha. It may relieve symptoms in some cases, but it also leaves a dead tooth in the body and a lot of microbes in the microscopic channels of the dentin. Thus, in the future, the body’s immune system is compromised by the microbes in the dentin, and they can attack the body. The tooth becomes a focus of infection and may spread to the rest of the body.
La Jolla Center for Holistic Dentistry, a San Diego holistic dentist’s practice, is the most experienced dental practice in using ozone therapy in treating root canal infections—an alternative root canal treatment. We’ve treated many root canal infections with alternative root canal treatment successfully. In the following series, we will report a few cases to educate and spread this wonderful therapy of using ozone and homeopathic remedies to enhance the body’s immune system and let teeth revive their own vitality. This is a true holistic dentist’s approach.
