Endodontics

What is Endodontics?

It is a highly specialized area of dentistry that treats the "inside" of a tooth (pulp) and surrounding tissues. Most common endodontic treatments consist of root canals or apicoectomy. We have many dedicated endodontic dentists (or endodontists) that specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of challenging endodontic conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the signs and symptoms of endodontic conditions?

    Generally most people with an endodontic condition will experience sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, or swelling or tenderness of the tooth or surrounding tissue.

  • What is an endodontist?

    An endodontist is a dentist who has received specialized education and training following dental school and has earned a specialty degree or certification in the field of endodontics. Endodontists primarily perform surgery and therapy for root canals.

  • Why would I need endodontic treatment?

    Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp (contained inside the root of a tooth) becomes inflamed or infected due to the introduction of bacteria from deep cavities, tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth fractures or other conditions.
