Biomimetic Dentistry

Did you know that about 80 percent of root canals can be prevented? That statistic is cringeworthy, wouldn’t you agree? There are so many things that, if detected early, can be treated conservatively and relatively inexpensively.

How? We’re glad you asked.

At Columbus Avenue Smiles, we utilize the principles of Biomimetic Dentistry that, at its core, strives to conserve the existing tooth structure rather than just replacing it, offering a treatment option that is more sustainable and longer-lasting. This sort of practice feeds into our core philosophy: No dentistry is the best dentistry.

We treat weak, fractured and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and seals them from bacterial invasion. This method of treatment has practically eliminated cutting teeth down for crowns and destructive root canals. The best part? Your mouth’s health isn’t the only thing benefited so is your pocket book!

We’re committed to providing you treatment that preserves your mouth’s health and enables it to fight off disease with natural defenses.
