Shelby Township Dental Patient has Root Canal to Relieve Pain

Dr. Antolak:  Hi, my name is Dr. Antolak from in Shelby Township, Michigan. Our phone number is (586) 247-3500, and today, John has agreed to allow us to tell his story about what we’ve done. Maybe you can share it with us.

Shelby Twp. Dental Patient: What I had was a 4 tooth bridge and one of the teeth had  a severe cavity and needed a root canal.   Dr. Antolak was able to do a root canal, you know, with leaving the bridge intact, allowing to save the bridge and save the cost of a new bridge or dental implants.

Dr Antolak:  If you take a look right here. This is what he’s talking about. So he has what’s called a bridge. It connects from one tooth to fill a couple missing teeth right here. From here to here. So there are two natural teeth that are supporting this one piece, which gives him the ability to chew. Well, he had a pretty deep cavity right in this area here, and the reality is, is that it probably would have been better to extract that tooth and actually put an implant in there.  But because of financial constraints, we’re just going to do what it’s going to take to get him out of pain…keep and use that.  We don’t always do the most ideal dentistry here but what we want to do it meet our, our situation that we have with the people who trusts us to make the best decision for their health specific issues because part of our, our mission statement is that we, you know, we listen to your needs first and then deliver uncompromising care with respect and  integrity, so you’re aware of what ideal is.  But at the same time, we’re trying to help transition you to at least get your mouth healthy and, and go from there.

Anyway, that’s just the type of level of care that we believe is important so that people are well informed and we meet their needs where they are at that time.
