What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a specialization within the field of dentistry that focuses on the dental pulp, the soft tissue inside of each tooth containing nerves and blood vessels that are integral in the development of the tooth. The dental pulp can become infected with bacteria, resulting in the need for root canal therapy or other endodontic procedures to save the tooth.

Services We Provide

We provide the following endodontic services:

  • Non-surgical root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is the process of removing the dental pulp from the inside of the tooth and replacing it with a rubbery filling that is not susceptible to infection. The tooth will most likely need to be covered with a crown following a root canal. A root canal can treat or prevent a tooth infection. 
  • Non-surgical root canal retreatment. In some cases a tooth that has already had a root canal will become reinfected. This can occur if all of the dental pulp was not removed the first time or if a new root canal opens up in a tooth. Root canal retreatment is just a repeat root canal with special care taken to remove the pulp and fill the tooth. 
  • Apicoectomy (Endodontic Surgery). When the source of the infection is the root of the tooth under the gums, surgery is required to treat it. An apicoectomy is the process of removing the tip of the tooth root and the infected tissue in and around it. The root is then repaired and capped to prevent reinfection.  
  • Internal Resorption. A tooth that has sustained an injury can start to break down from the inside. To treat this condition a procedure similar to a root canal is performed where the dental pulp is removed and calcium hydroxide is placed inside the tooth. It is then filled with rubbery material to fortify the tooth and prevent infection.
  • External Resorption. Another possible result of a dental trauma is that the root of the tooth can start to break down from the outside. The treatment is similar to what is done for internal resorption and may also require the outer portion of the root to be repaired. 
  • Single Tooth Internal Bleaching. One common side effect of an infected tooth is discoloration. Because it occurs on the inside of the tooth, internal bleaching is required to restore the natural color of the tooth. 
  • Apexogenesis. Apexogenesis is a pediatric endodontic procedure that encourages the roots of the teeth to grow and develop properly when they don’t do so automatically. 
  • Apexification. Another pediatric procedure to address underdeveloped roots, apexification involves placing calcium hydroxide in the root canal to create a barrier between the tip of the root and the dental pulp. This allows the roots to develop without risk of infection. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a root canal painful?

Root canal therapy is a routine dental procedure that is similar, but slightly more complex than a cavity filling. Local anesthesia is used to numb the tooth and the area around it so that you don’t feel any pain. We offer sedation options as well to help you relax during your procedure if you feel the need. 

How long does a root canal take?

A root canal procedure can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. The length of the procedure varies from one patient to another depending on a variety of factors, such as the location of the tooth, the size of the tooth, and the amount of anesthesia required, among other things. 

Why do I need a repeat root canal?

In some cases a tooth will become reinfected after having a root canal. This can occur when the dental pulp is not fully removed during the initial procedure. In rare cases a new root canal will form in a tooth that wasn’t there before. As an endodontist, we have specialized equipment and expertise to ensure that the procedure is successful. 

Does dental insurance cover endodontic treatment?

Most dental insurance plans cover endodontic treatment to some extent. Contact your insurance provider to inquire about your plan and coverage. Financing is available if needed to make out of pocket costs more affordable.
