Endodontics is a highly specialized type of dental care developed to remove infected and/or damaged “nerve” tissue from the root canal system of a tooth.
The success of treatment is preserved by subsequently sealing that system to prevent re-infection.
The entire procedure is accomplished with little or no discomfort through the use of routine dental anesthetics. We also have Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) available, as well as liquid oral Valium or Halcion tablets. These are for anyone who is in need of a little extra help in calming fears to make your endodontic experience with us a very pleasant one.
Many teeth require core buildups after root canal therapy is completed. This is done to provide a sound foundation onto which your dentist can build a crown or too close an existing crown restoration. The success of treatment is preserved by subsequently sealing that system to prevent re-infection.
