Our office is equipped with the state-of-the-art technology, and we have established a reputation for providing the highest quality of care. Whether you should require a root canal, endodontic re-treatment, surgical root canal therapy or the most delicate treatment of cracked or fractured teeth, you'll be in the very best of hands at our office.
Endodontists have advanced training beyond dental school and specialize in techniques to perform procedures relating to the inside of the teeth. They are probably best known for performing root canal therapy, when a tooth's nerve or pulp becomes infected and inflamed due to decay or a crack, break or injury.
While initial root canal treatment has a success rate of well over 90 percent, sometimes additional care or re-treatment requires an advanced level of care from an endodontist. They also perform endodontic treatments and surgeries, address traumatic dental injuries and place dental implants. Our endodontists will often work with our other dental professionals to develop customized treatment options for your individual needs.
At that same time, an endodontist is skilled and experienced in treating teeth with unique or complex root structures, such as curved or narrow canals, minuscule extra canals or recurrent symptoms. If a tooth that has previously been treated with root canal therapy is still causing issues, our endodontist will carefully examine the tooth to determine the best way to proceed.
