Each year, endodontists perform millions of root canals to treat severely compromised teeth, helping patients retain their natural smile and restore oral health. At the office of Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC, we deliver precise and gentle care, and keep pace with the most advanced technology in the field of endodontics. With the care of our highly trained specialist, you can rest assured your smile is in the best of hands.
When a tooth has been extensively damaged by injury or decay, bacteria can seep in through the tooth’s outermost surface and infect the tooth’s center layer, which is called the dental pulp. While the dental pulp contains core tissues, which play the role of supplying your tooth with nutrients and innervation as it’s first developing, these tissues are not absolutely essential for a fully matured tooth to remain functional. This is the very reason that a root canal procedure offers an effective option in care for saving a tooth from an extraction. By expertly removing the damaged dental pulp and then cleaning and sealing the tooth with biocompatible materials, our skilled endodontist can save the tooth as well as help to prevent any subsequent problems or reinfection.
For the most precise and effective outcome of care, you can rely on our office to utilize the most advanced techniques and technology to perform your root canal procedure. Microsurgical endodontic treatment delivers care with ultimate precision and the least damage to the surrounding tissues. Also, by using operating microscopes to illuminate and magnify the inside of the tooth, we can view the operating area with maximum clarity. This level of accuracy also facilitates faster healing times.
