An endodontist is a dentist who has completed at least two years of additional specialty training beyond dental school. This specialty training is specifically focused on diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp and periradicular tissues (tissues that surround the roots). Our endodontists are efficient because they exclusively perform root canal treatments, retreatments, and surgical procedures. To manage complex endodontic cases, our endodontists continually update techniques and materials through continuing education. Our doctors use state-of-the-art technology such as operating microscopes, digital imaging, apex locators, ultrasonic and rotary instrumentation, to treat their patients quickly and comfortably.
Your dentist has referred you to our office because they have identified one or more of your teeth that need endodontic diagnosis or treatment. By choosing to send you to our office your dentist has begun the process to return your tooth to better dental health. You may or may not be currently having a toothache. While toothaches can indicate the need for endodontic therapy sometimes a tooth can need a root canal treatment and not be hurting. In our office every patient is thoroughly examined and a diagnosis made prior to beginning any treatment.
