My Dentist Says I Need a Root Canal, What Should I Do?

The most feared dental news from a dentist is “You need a root canal!” Dr. Jeffrey Etess says, “Do not fear,” as root canals are often over-recommended and unnecessary. Skill and expertise are not necessarily synonymous with every dentist. Technique is the key to success. Some people experience tooth pain and/or sensitivity from an improperly placed dental composite filling and are then told they need a root canal.

Root canals get a bad rap because 74 percent of general dentists perform the procedure without a sterile barrier, commonly referred to as the rubber dam. With no rubber dam, the root canal becomes contaminated with mouth germs from the very beginning, thereby never having a chance for success. A poorly executed root canal can lead to systemic illness. Dr. Etess has treated many failed root canals properly resulting in improvement or disappearance of the patients lingering autoimmune dysfunction. 

More than 50 percent of the root canals undertaken by Dr. Etess are failed root canals. “Do it right or do not do it at all” is his mantra. He incorporates cutting-edge root canal cleaning and disinfection protocols, including but not limited to photo acoustic/photo mechanical laser, ozone and intra-root canal ultrasonic shockwave cavitation root canal therapy. It is the best root canal therapy available, and Dr. Etess refuses to be anything less than the best. All the materials used are biocompatible and biomimetic in nature.  

Some patients are convinced that biological root canals, even those that Dr. Etess provides, are still “dead vesicles” harboring bad bacteria that will cause them harm. What if the tooth can be made alive again? With ToothRegenesis it can. ToothRegenesis is a proprietary procedure which combines all the disinfection protocols of Dr. Etess’ biological root canal with the regenerative properties of the patient’s own stem cells from their platelet rich fibrin (PRF) derived from the patient’s own blood. This has been a GAME CHANGER in a patient keeping their own tooth.
