More About Our Endodontic Services
Endodontics is a dental specialty focused on dental pulp diseases and injuries. People who need endodontic work find themselves in pain and need to find solutions quickly. Our endodontic practice can assess your problem, deliver the proper treatment to end your discomfort, and, in many cases, preserve your natural tooth from extraction.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is the most common endodontic procedure. To perform a root canal, the endodontist opens the tooth's crown and cleans and disinfects it from the inside. Special equipment like the GentleWave system helps to kill bacteria and clear infections. The endodontist reseals the tooth with durable material and places a temporary crown. The patient then visits their family dentist to receive a permanent crown. We also offer internal tooth bleaching to combat the discoloration that can sometimes result due to dental trauma.
We enhance our endodontic care through the use of digital dentistry techniques. We use digital radiographs and a sophisticated CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scanner that provides diagnostic information with pinpoint accuracy. In addition, we use electronic dental records to facilitate sharing information with your family dentist.
If you suffer a dental injury, call us for help. We can often save broken, knocked-out, or dislodged teeth. Depending on the location and depth of the break, a damaged tooth may respond well to a root canal and reconstruction. Endodontists can treat dislodged or knocked-out teeth with splints or other methods.
While endodontic work is generally no more uncomfortable than general dentistry procedures, we take care of our anxious and phobic patients. We offer several levels of sedation, including conscious sedation, nitrous oxide, and general sedation, to ensure you are as comfortable as possible.
Not all dental problems can wait until your next appointment. Injuries, broken or lost restorations, and other emergencies need immediate treatment. We will do our best to see you promptly if you have an issue that can't wait.
