Endodontics – Root Canals

Our office uses advanced technology and modern techniques to ensure the highest quality dental care with minimal discomfort.

Endodontics – Root Canals

In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you’d probably lose that tooth. Today, with a special dental procedure called root canal treatment, your tooth can be saved. When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If left untreated, an abscess may form. If the infected tissue is not removed, pain woman in tooth painand swelling can result. This can not only injure your jawbones, but is detrimental to your overall health.Root canal treatment involves one to three visits. During treatment, your general dentist or endodontist (a dentist who specializes in problems with the nerves of the teeth) removes the affected tissue. Next, the tissue will be removed and the interior of the tooth will be cleaned and sealed. Finally, the tooth is filled with a dental composite. If your tooth has extensive decay, your doctor may suggest placing a crown to strengthen and protect the tooth from breaking. As long as you continue to care for your teeth and gums with regular brushing, flossing, and checkups, your restored tooth can last a lifetime.

Oral Surgery

Oral Surgeons are required to complete additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training upon graduating from dental school. Our Oral Surgeons have the training to perform a wide variety of procedures relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions including tooth extractions, wisdom teeth removal, and bone grafting.

Please contact us today for more information about root canals and oral surgery options, or to make an appointment for an evaluation.
