Ventura, CA Minimally Invasive Dental Treatments Reduce Root Canal Risk

Jul 31, 2023

Get your dental work done painlessly, by the experts using minimally-invasive treatments. The Anacapa Dental Art Institute (805-398-6647) can reduce your risk of needing a root canal by using gentle techniques combined with the most advanced technology on the market.

Did you know that sometimes a person might need a root canal because of more invasive procedures such as crowns when an inlay or inlay would have achieve the same result whilst preserving tooth structure.

Now, don't panic - I know that sounds backward, and it is, but it's not something that you, personally, need to worry about. At least, not now that you're here, reading this article, because I can tell you the simple way to make sure that never happens to you.

All you need to do is find a dental team that specializes in being minimally invasive and has both the training and technology to do it right.

Okay, maybe that isn't so easy... unless you're near my dentist's office, in which case, HUZZAH!

I'll tell you all about them in a minute, but first, let me explain.

Research suggests that while the most common reason you might require a root canal is that you haven't been brushing and flossing, sometimes that's not the reason. Some root canals may be required as a result of certain dental procedures - because all that work can sometimes make the nerve in the tooth respond unfavorably.

I know, I know, it's concerning. That's why I prefer to get my dental work done at a top-tier practice , where I know the team is fully up-to-date on the latest techniques, tools, and methods.

If you're nearby, you might have already guessed, I'm talking about the Anacapa Dental Arts Institute - where the name says it all. It's not just dental work, it's Dental Art, and your mouth is the masterpiece. You can check them out at

Obviously, the Anacapa Dental team has always worked to make every procedure as minimally invasive as possible, but what you may not know is that they have certain advantages that most dental clinics do not. This includes a full in-house lab, touchless dental impressions, and laser treatments that can help to improve your recovery time, just to name a few.

By combining modern tooth cleaning techniques, surgical procedures, and advanced technology, their dental team has been able to drastically reduce the chances of clients requiring a root canal as a result of problematic repairs or repeated procedures.

I can't stress how important that is, for me in particular - because as much as I like the work they do, I don't want to come back for a root canal on top of my regular cleanings.

Speaking of which, let me tell you something that is so cool - I thought my dentist was joking when he first told me about it.

Instead of the usual scrubbing, picking, and unpleasant scraping you get with normal cleaning, they did something totally different. It's called ultrasonic cleaning, and it eliminates hardened tartar and plaque build-up faster than the traditional method, while also being less invasive.

Don't tell anyone I said this about the dentist's office, because I'll deny it, but it was almost kind of fun.

Every treatment is like that now, even the well-known unpleasant ones are almost alright if you have the latest technology, but let me give you another example.

The last time I spoke to the Anacapa Dental team, they told me about their innovative laser dentistry techniques that treat gum disease, eliminate harmful bacteria, or reshape your gumline. Not only is this method way cooler, it also has a much faster recovery time and reduces the risk of damage which could lead to deep decay, and eventually to root canals.

Technology, right? Well, if you think that's cool just think for a second about how uncomfortable it is to get dental X-rays, or even worse, dental impressions.

Now check this out. Using their in-house lab, the Anacapa Dental team can do “touchless” scans of your teeth. That means digital X-rays that produce less damaging radiation than the traditional option, intraoral cameras that provide digital images, and a scanner that replaces the need for dental impressions.

You heard me. They don't take dental impressions with those gross-tasting trays, ever. I hope you weren't a fan of the bubblegum or root beer flavors, because, with any luck, they're gone forever.

Now let's see, we've covered minimally invasive, advanced technology, and getting rid of gross impression trays, what did we miss?

The pain! That's what I forgot to talk about.

Normally, that's like the number one concern visiting the dentist, and I forgot about it entirely.

That's what happens when your dentist offers three different types of sedation. The pain isn't even a factor anymore, because, by the time I sit down in the chair - I'm not feeling anything but comfy, relaxed, and sedated.

You should try it out.

Just make sure that you ask about sedation when you book your appointment, so they can have it ready when you arrive.
