A Root Canal Therapy is needed when the pulp of your tooth becomes infected. This involves removing the infected pulp from your tooth to prevent further problems such as abscess and bone loss. You may know that require a Root Canal if you have sensitivity that lasts more than 15 seconds after drinking hot or cold substances, or if you experience pain upon biting. In some cases a tooth will have no symptoms at all, but after full dental evaluation and X-Rays will show that the Root Canal is needed.
Root Canals are done by an Endodontist and requires the Specialist to make a hole through the enamel and dentin surfaces to gain access to the pulp chamber, where he/she proceeds to remove the pulp, clean the pulp chamber and seal the chamber with gutta percha.
To insure the long term success of the tooth after a Root Canal an antibiotic is prescribed and a post and Core Build Up and Crown is recommended to prevent fractures or filtration of bacteria to the tooth.

We use the Bicon System of Short Implants in order to take advantage of minimal bone levels and avoid vital structures such as the sinus or mental foramen, which usually require multiple visits.
Zygomatic Implants are Implants that are much longer in length than conventional Implants (40 mm – 50 mm), and are placed in the dense Zygoma bone or otherwise known as the cheekbone. The advantage of using Zygomatic Implants is that it eliminates the need for procedures like ridge augmentation (Bone Grafting) and/or Sinus Lifting, which would require more surgery and longer healing periods before the placement of the final restoration.
