Endodontics is the dental specialty that focuses on the treatment of the dental pulp, or nerve, of the tooth. We performs a variety of procedures including root canals, re-treatments of failing root canals, root amputation, apicoectomies, pulpotomies and more.
Primarily, trauma or decay causes the pulp to become inflamed or infected. Severe pain is often experienced and it becomes necessary to remove the nerve of the tooth in order to save the dentition. These procedures are performed on children and adults alike. If you think you may need the services of an endodontist, contact our office for a consultation.
