What is Endodontics?
What Happens During Endodontic Treatment? or What is a Root Canal?

The interior of a tooth, the pulp, can become inflamed or infected. This is often very painful and, if left untreated, can lead to infection or an abscess. During a root canal, one of our doctors will remove the pulp, carefully clean the affected area, and fill the interior of the tooth. After the tooth has had a chance to calm down, a crown or permanent filling will be completed by your general dentist. This procedure has a nearly 90% success rate and is the best option for maintaining your own healthy teeth. You will be given a local anesthetic during this procedure and should not experience any pain or discomfort while we are treating your tooth.


What other conditions do Endodontists treat?

In addition to root canals, endodontists treat cracked or damaged teeth. Our doctors are trained in endodontic procedures designed to save injured teeth. Even teeth lost during an injury can be saved! Our team will do everything in our power to help you retain lost or damaged teeth and keep your beautiful, natural smile.

Will I need additional visits?

Most treatments can be completed in a single visit. However, some treatments will require additional visits. During your initial consultation, our experienced team will tell you what to expect and help schedule visits that fit into your schedule.
