Specializing in Saving Teeth


Endodontics is the area of dentistry that focuses on the root tissues and dental pulp. Endodontic procedures can often save a badly decayed or damaged tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted.


Root Canal


The most common, but most feared, type of endodontic service, modern root canals are virtually pain-free. A root canal is needed when damage or decay has infiltrated the tooth’s roots, putting both the tooth and the jawbone at imminent risk.

After numbing the tooth and surrounding tissues with a local anesthetic, we drill through the crown of the tooth to the root chamber. We use specialized tools to carefully clean and reshape the root canal(s), place a post if needed, and fill and seal the canal(s) with biocompatible gutta percha. We then place a temporary crown, and ask you to return in a few days for a final crown. Most people have minimal pain that responds well to over the counter medications and are back to work within 48 hours.


Root Canal Retreatment


Although root canals performed by endodontists have a success rate of 95%, they can occasionally fail. If this happens, we can retreat the tooth, using a microscope to search for any additional canals or unusual anatomy that may have led to the failure. We will again carefully clean and seal the affected canal(s), place a temporary crown, and ask you to return for your final crown.


Apicoectomy


If a root canal retreatment fails, you may need apical surgery, known as an apicoectomy. This allows us to replace the root tip with a filling.

After the tooth and surrounding tissues are fully numb, we cut a small incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth root. Using magnification and precision instruments, we remove a few millimeters of inflamed tooth root. We then place a filling and close the gums with sutures. Over the next few months, the bone heals around the treated root.


Pulpotomy


Sometimes known as a baby root canal because it is most commonly performed on baby teeth, a pulpotomy removes infected tooth pulp. We then place a medicated dressing to aid in healing and seal the tooth chamber. A pulpotomy is not as invasive as a root canal, and it can be highly effective in treating teeth for which infection has not spread to the roots.


Cracked Teeth


A cracked tooth can cause intense pain, especially during chewing. A crack provides an easy entry point for bacteria, which can cause infections in the tooth pulp and spread to the surrounding gum and bone tissue. Therefore, it is important to diagnose and treat the cracked tooth as soon as possible.


Dental Trauma


If a root canal retreatment fails, you may need apical surgery, known as an apicoectomy. This allows us to replace the root tip with a filling.

After the tooth and surrounding tissues are fully numb, we cut a small incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth root. Using magnification and precision instruments, we remove a few millimeters of inflamed tooth root. We then place a filling and close the gums with sutures. Over the next few months, the bone heals around the treated root.
