Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)

Endodontists provide services aimed at the prevention and treatment of dental pain and discomfort, and other care related to the inside of the tooth.

These specialists are focused on issues concerning the roots of teeth, as well as diseases of the nerve and surrounding structures.

Depending on the needs of the patient, treatment may be surgical or non-surgical.

Often, endodontists seek to save a damaged tooth by clearing any disease or decay and preventing further damage. The most well-known of these treatments is the root canal.

Please note, a referral from a dental provider is required for all endodontic evaluation appointments.

Services Include:

  • Root canal treatment
  • Endodontic retreatment
  • Endodontic surgery
  • Treatment and aftercare for dental traumatic injuries
