Dentists and endodontists are challenged to stay up to date with the latest research on innovative treatments and materials.
There are many exciting advancements being made in the dental industry to improve patient health and care. As a dentist, it is important to stay up to date with the latest innovations and best practices so you can continue to provide the highest level of care to your patients. For example, there are many holistic practices that are becoming more common which use substances and materials that are biologically friendly, durable, and efficient such as:
- Biolase Waterlase Laser: This tool precisely combines water and laser energy to remove hard and soft tissue and bacteria silently and without the use of any harsh chemicals.
- EndoCal 10: EndoCal 10 is a holistic material used as a filling during root canals. EndoCal 10 is calcium oxide (CaO) and recent studies have shown that it is a safe alternative to amalgam or other conventional substances to fill a root canal
Responsible Research Elevates Patient Care
When it comes to implementing new technology and practices, the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) encourages dentists and endodontists to select only advancements that have been thoroughly researched and scientifically proven. There is a growing body of research based on laboratory, biological, and clinical studies that evaluates the safety and effectiveness of new methods and materials. The AAE recommends dentists and endodontists take time to research new and current methods to ensure the necessary laboratory, biological and clinical studies have taken place to support the use in patient care. The AAE further advises that dentists and endodontists abstain from implementing any material or practices that have not been adequately researched.
Consult an Expert
As specialists in oral care, endodontists receive extensive training in root canal treatment and oral surgery practices to gain additional insight and experience with new technology and root canal treatments. Endodontists have an additional two years of specialized training and are equipped with the latest technology and practices available to provide a more sophisticated level of care. Consequently, endodontists are prepared to play an important collaborative role in your dental team and can provide unique expertise to support a general dentist in managing and caring for a patient’s overall dental health.
To provide the highest level of patient care and stay up to date on the latest advancements in oral treatment, it is important that dentists and endodontists commit to researching new advancements and partnering to provide specialized collaborative care when appropriate.
