Our Dental Services
An Endodontist is a dentist who specializes in the field of Endodontics, which comes from the Greek endo (inside) and odons (tooth). This specialty deals with the diagnosis and treatment of the dental pulp (nerve, blood and lymphatic tissues). Root canal therapy can be very successful, furthermore, it could be the last chance to save a tooth.
Endodontists have graduated from dental school and then completed an additional two to three years of specialty training. Endodontists limit their practice to root canal therapy and root canal surgery only. Procedures at Apex Endodontics include Root Canal Therapy, Endodontic Retreatment, Apical (Root) Surgery, Internal/External Resorption, Perforation Repair, Post Space and Removal, Pulpal Regeneration, Apexification, and Dental (Tooth) Trauma.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth, and save the natural tooth.
Endodontic retreatment is necessary if your tooth hasn’t healed as expected after initial treatment.
Occasionally, a nonsurgical root canal procedure alone cannot save your tooth. Apical surgery is performed to treat an abscess or infection and save the tooth.
Whether your tooth cracks from an injury or general wear and tear, you can experience a variety of symptoms. The treatment and outcome for your tooth depend on the type, location, and extent of the crack.
Traumatic dental injuries often occur as a result of an accident or sports injury. Treatment depends on the type, location and severity of each injury.
