Endodontics is a specialization of dentistry that specifically treats the inside of your tooth. Using advanced techniques to treat dental pulp and root issues, we address the overall health of your teeth. Your tooth pulp includes the nerves, blood vessels, and other tissues deep inside the tooth. The root is the part of the tooth beneath your gums that holds the tooth in place in your jaw. We treat complex causes of mouth pain to focus on relief and recovery.
A treatment to remove any infection or bacteria in the tooth. After removing the infection, we reseal the tooth to prevent any future infection.
The removal of previous root canal fillings. This is followed by replacing, cleaning, and shaping the tooth.
Treating physical injury to the teeth or gums. May involve treating complex injuries or emergent tooth infections.
An artificial tooth that is rooted into your jaw to hold a prosthetic tooth or bridge. Used to restore functionality or looks of a tooth after removal.
This is the destruction of your tooth enamel and the outer layer of your teeth. Decay is removed and treated with a filling in most cases.
When a crack runs all the way to the roots, the treatment is a root canal. If the crack is severe enough, it can potentially require extraction.
Most endodontic treatments are outpatient, and you are free to go home directly afterward. You may feel discomfort and soreness for a few days, but some patients can immediately return to work. You may have a follow-up appointment – which is important to protect and restore your tooth. It is important to take dental pain seriously. For that reason, we recommend that you see us as soon as possible.
