One of Dr. Strongs favorite procedures to do in dentistry is the Root Canal. This area of dentistry is most accurately called Endodontics. This is the treatment of root canal systems. It begins with removing the nerve/blood vessels from the tooth so it doesn't hurt anymore. The tooth is then disinfected and sealed to prevent any recolonization of the tooth with bacteria.
Root Canal courses taken include:
-Clean-Shape-Pack from Dr. Cliff Ruddle at Advanced Endodontics (www.endoruddle.com)
-Multiple courses by Dr. L. Stephen Buchanon (www.DELendo.com)
-Real World Endodontics by Dr.'s Koch/Brave
-Endo Magic by Dr. Arthur "Kit" Weathers
-Man there are just too many to list here.............at least 10-15 more continuing education classes.
Dental Implants are quickly becoming commonplace in dentistry. If you are looking for a dentist in Spanish Fork that places implants, you are in luck. Dr. Strong does place dental implants. His initial dental implant training was a 3 month training program with Dr. Dale Wahl in Aurora, CO. (www.wahldentalgroup.com) Dr. Wahl taught in conjunction with Nobel Biocare. During the training Dr. Strong was able to place multiple implants and do multiple bone grafting procedures. One of those grafting procedures was done on his MOTHER-IN-LAW! Talk about tempting fate. Since that time Dr. Strong has attended other Implant classes and lectures and will continue to do so to improve his implant skills. He has placed hundreds of dental implants and is comfortable knowing which cases need to be seen by a specialist, and which ones he can predictably complete.
