In the vast majority of cases, root canals are caused by infections, and the bacteria that cause root canal infections are difficult to remove completely once they get into the tooth and the bone around the tooth.
When teeth get infected the tubules get filled with bacteria and traditional root canal therapy doesn’t have an effective way of dealing with the bacteria in the tubules of the root.
Advanced Laser Endodontic Therapy (ALET) successfully addresses the two major disadvantages of traditional root canal therapy: the inability to clean and sanitize anatomically complex root-canal systems and to deeply disinfect dentinal walls and tubules. Using the PIPS and SWEEPS modes of the Fotona Erbium laser, virtually all the bacteria present in infected teeth is eliminated.

I wanted to get out some DIY ways that my subscribers and patients can use to meet the challenge of the Coronavirus. So, over the next couple of weeks I will be posting tips and guidance on what you can do on your own to maintain and improve the health of not only your mouth, but your entire body.
One of the services dentists in California have had to eliminate is teeth cleanings. This includes all routine recall appointments. While this is not a big problem short term, long term it’s an issue. The gums and the mucosal lining of the mouth is exposed to the outside world and susceptible to microbial growth and infections. If you don’t get cleanings done on a regular basis, then these microbes make a home around your teeth and under your gums, creating constant inflammation. These microbes can also gain access to the rest of your body, because bleeding or ‘leaky’ gums can give aggressive microbes access to your bloodstream.
Due to the changing global landscape caused by the Coronavirus, dentistry has had to adapt as well. Based on the ‘shelter in place’ mandate issued by California’s governor, all elective, non essential services are going to be suspended. This is the guidance from the CDA, the ADA, the CDC and Home Health as well. But what does that mean? If you have an appointment for a non essential dental procedure like a cleaning, you’ll need to reschedule your appointment. However, if you have an essential need that can’t wait, then you should definitely seek care and not put it off. What is essential care? Read more to find out.
Can the microbiome in your mouth affect the microbiome in your gut? The answer is yes, according to a study in the Journal of Oral Microbiology, published in March of 2019. More on this later. First, let’s explore what the microbiome is and why it’s so important. We are actually walking, talking microbial ecosystems.

Ceramic Dental Implants
Natural Gum Care
Heal areas in your mouth where inflammation and infections are active. This may be due to decay, old root canals or gum disease. Dr O will check extractions and root canals for bacteria leakage, a 24/7 source of unseen infection called cavitations. Treating areas of bacterial infection is important for healthy gums.
Did you know that many diseases are linked to oral health?
For many decades dentistry has been considered a separate discipline outside of general wellness and health, but this is rapidly changing with new tools like the high definition microscope and a greater understanding of inflammatory, chronic and auto immune conditions.
Did you know that there are two types of Dental Implants available?
Until recently, titanium has been the only material available for dental implants. Thanks to modern advances in dentistry, Zirconia (or Ceramic) has become a viable alternative for those seeking a healthy, biologically compatible solution to missing teeth.
Did you know that two of the greatest nutritionists of the 20th century were dentists?
Drs. Weston Price and Royal Lee, two giants in the field of dental health, knew that proper nutrition is the key to a healthy mouth, mind and body. See how common nutrients and minerals in food affect the mouth and immune system.
