We are proud to offer endodontic services for our patients. Endodontics is a dental specialty, dealing with the dental pulp. When the dental pulp is infected or diseased, it is important to perform treatment in order to have healthy teeth and a healthy mouth.
The most common endodontic treatment is root canal, though we also deal with cracked teeth and numerous forms of dental trauma. We will do everything that we can do to protect your dental pulp so that you can keep your teeth.
We are proud to be able to offer endodontic services for our patients so that they don’t have to go to multiple dentists to get the care that they need. We are constantly learning and growing to give you the very best dental care available.
If you have any questions about our endodontic services or you need to be seen by one of our dentists, feel free to contact us today.
When is a root canal needed?
Root canals are needed when decay and bacteria have spread within a tooth for too long without treatment. After a while, the infection will make its way into the pulp within your tooth which contains nerves that can cause a lot of pain if infected. Since the infection is happening within the tooth, you won’t necessarily see the damage, but instead will feel it or notice other signs such as bleeding, swelling, and bad breath.
If left untreated, you may lose a tooth or risk the infection spreading further into the body, which can result in more extensive treatment than a root canal would require.
