We offer a wide range of endodontic services, including root canal therapy, endodontic retreatment, and apicoectomy. We use the latest technology and techniques to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care. If you are having pain, or suspect a cracked tooth, seek treatment before the problem gets worse.
We specialize in treating dental injuries caused by trauma, such as fractures, dislodged teeth, and pulp damage. Our endodontists will work quickly to save your tooth and restore your smile.
We have Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT technology). CBCT is a 3-D image that shows features of the tooth that are not visible on 2-D radiographs. CBCT has numerous advantages including (but not limited to): fast imaging, low patient radiation, and the ability to identify ways to save teeth that otherwise would need extraction. In this picture to the left, (CBCT image on right), we were able to identify missed canals that are difficult to see on the 2-D xray.
Our team offers oral sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) options to help anxious patients feel more comfortable during their endodontic procedures. We will work with you to determine the best option for your needs.
We specialize in root canal treatments to relieve pain and save your natural teeth. A root canal is typically needed when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of the tooth. When root canal treatment is performed, the pulp (center layer of the tooth) is removed. The inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected, and the canals are shaped and sealed with a filling material.
If you have a previously treated tooth that is causing pain or infection, our endodontists can perform a retreatment to remove any remaining bacteria and save your tooth. Click learn more to learn more about how a retreatment is performed.
Occasionally, a nonsurgical root canal procedure alone cannot save your tooth and surgery may be necessary. The most common surgery to save the tooth is called an apicoectomy, or root-end resection. Our specialists remove the tip of the tooth root and seal it to prevent further infection. Local anasthetics make the procedure comfortable, and most patients return to their normal activities the next day. Click below to watch a video about apicoectomy.
CBCT (3-D Imaging)
We have Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT technology). CBCT is a 3-D image that shows features of the tooth that are not visible on 2-D radiographs. CBCT has numerous advantages including (but not limited to): fast imaging, low patient radiation, ability to identify ways to save teeth that otherwise would need extraction, diagnosis and management of dental injuries, and diagnosis of unusual disorders that may be confused with dental injuries.
Our smiles are built to last, but as we live longer and expose our teeth to stresses like clenching, grinding, or chewing on hard objects, we can put our smiles at risk. If you think you have a cracked tooth, it's important to seek treatment quickly, before the problem gets worse.
