Dr O’Rielly and his staff have a very strict infection control protocol. This includes negative pressure and high-speed filtration in our operatories to protect patients from infection. These filters clean and exchange the air in the treatment rooms every 5 minutes. Read more about the precautions we have in place.

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.
Fast, effective and minimally invasive treatments!
Amalgams are silver-colored metal fillings. 50% mercury by volume. It has been estimated that up to 14% of the metal waste in the oceans is from dental amalgam. Its use has been banned entirely in Norway, Denmark and Sweden. In September 2020 an article published in...
I was a little surprised when I heard that Dr. Mercola interviewed Dr Kanter, a root canal specialist. Dr. Mercola is a man with a mission, familiar to many health-minded people as an advocate for natural health. The current conversation about root canals among many of his followers is generally along the lines of: ‘If you need a root canal, extract the tooth!’ or ‘Why would you want a dead tooth in your mouth?’
When a tooth has an infected root canal often times it needs to be removed and a ceramic implant placed instead. In dentistry we always try to leave the patient better off, and with old infected root canals, sometimes it is better to just remove the problem and start...

Heal areas in your mouth where inflammation and infections are active. This may be due to decay, old root canals or gum disease.

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.
