Our endodontists perform a wide range of complex treatment to help you retain your natural teeth. Endodontic treatment may involve:
Root canal therapy: We use root canal treatment to find and treat problems in the tooth’s soft core (dental pulp) that often cause infection, pain and swelling. Root canal treatment is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits.
Cracked teeth: Depending on the size and location of the crack, treatment may vary from bonding to root canal treatment. Our endodontists use high-powered microscopes to determine the severity of the crack and will recommend the best treatment for you.
Internal tooth bleaching: Internal tooth bleaching is used to whiten a discolored tooth that has had root canal treatment. Unlike external bleaching, internal bleaching brightens teeth from the inside out.
Orofacial pain syndromes: Our endodontists are experienced in the prevention, evaluations, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of orofacial pain syndromes. Our multi-specialty practice allows us to consult with oral surgeons, orthodontists and other experts to diagnose and refer you for treatment.
Periapical surgery: Usually, a tooth that has undergone a root canal can last the rest of your life and never need further endodontic treatment. However, in a few cases, a tooth may not heal or become infected. If this is true for you, surgery may help save your tooth. Our endodontists are experienced in periapical surgery and will consult with you about the best treatment.
