Endodontics is the area of dentistry dealing with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dental pulp disorders. Endodontic therapy (root canal) is a treatment modality that saves diseased or injured teeth. Typically, a severely decayed tooth, or a tooth with a large filling, will begin to ache. At first, the pain might be intermittent, but can progress over time to a constant dull throbbing or severe ache that might be felt on all teeth on the affected side.
We are committed to saving your existing teeth, if at all possible. We stand behind the root canal procedures done in our office since 99% of them are successful! If the tooth is severely compromised, our doctors recommend replacement with a dental implant and crown.
