Endodontics, commonly referred to as root canal therapy, is designed to address issues related to the roots and nerves of the teeth. Untreated dental damage or decay can eventually work its way into the middle part of the tooth where the blood supply, lymphatics, and nerves of our teeth are found. This part of the tooth is called the pulp and if the pulpal tissue is affected and left untreated, more serious concerns such as pain and infections can develop. In addition to causing considerable pain, these infections can have a negative impact on oral health and even lead to dangerous overall health conditions and affect other areas of the mouth. Root canal therapy from our certified endodontist is designed to clear away the infection, alleviate discomfort, and save the affected tooth. Furthermore, our patient-centered approach makes the root canal process easier and more comfortable than ever before.
The following root canal treatments are performed as part of our multi specialty team:
If you’re experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, we can help. Contact us today for more information about endodontic treatment, or to schedule a consultation.
Even if you brush and floss regularly, the need for a root canal can still occur. Chips, breaks, decay, dental or oral injuries, and untreated cavities can eventually lead to an infection. If you develop intense sensitivity to heat or cold, pain or swelling in the face, a severe toothache, and/or an abscess, we encourage you to schedule an appointment so we can identify and treat the concern as quickly as possible.
