Expect a Comfortable Restoration
I got to tell you, Dr. John Birch is one of the best I’ve ever seen. He takes his time. He talks to the patients about what exactly is a root canal, so they know about it once they get into it. But if we have a patient that comes in, and they’re in abject pain, if they’ve got a large swelling, and you’d like to get them on an antibiotic, reduce the swelling ahead of time, reduce the pain, then Dr. Birch will see them, be able to open up the tooth, and take out the offending infection, and treat it, and put a beautiful fill into the tooth there, and then be able to put a crown over the top.
But the reason we like putting a crown over the top, if they don’t have a crown on it already, once you do a root canal on a tooth, the irrigation system, as we like to call it, is reduced, and the tooth becomes brittle. The patient has gone through the root canal treatment, which I got to tell you, very, very, very few of his patients have any post complaints when he does a root canal. He’s got a magic touch with them. I really say. When the crown is put on, it protects the tooth from biting down on something hard and fracturing it, and having to have the tooth taken out and an implant placed. So, this is one of the best services that we can do. As I say, Dr. John Birch is one of the best that we’ve got.
