Endodontics is the treatment of the soft tissue inside (pulp) inside the tooth. Endodontists, who perform root canals, receive advanced education after graduating form dental school and typically only deal with endodontic –related problems. We refer our patients to Endodontic Specialists, a practice who we feel are the very best in their field.
A common misconception is that a root canal is an uncomfortable procedure. Actually, they are similar to having a cavity filled, producing minimal discomfort.
Common causes for the need of root canal treatment are:
- Severe sensitivity to hot and cold
- Tooth decay
- Chipped or broken tooth
- Severe trauma to the tooth such as a blow to the tooth
- Trauma from repeated dental procedures
- Infection in the tooth pulp
Please contact our office for an evaluation if you experience any of the symptoms above.
