Preserving Natural Teeth: The Ultimate Goal of Endodontics

The primary objective of endodontic treatment is to eradicate the causative agents of dental pulp infections, which are usually a consequence of tooth decay. Surgical endodontics is recommended when teeth have not responded well to conventional treatment or when they cannot be adequately treated by non-surgical means. The aim of endodontic surgery is to eliminate the disease and prevent it from recurring. At our practice, we specialize in endodontics, also known as root canal therapy.

This procedure involves removing the pulp chamber of the tooth and filling it with a suitable filling material. Root canals are usually necessary when decay has reached the tooth's nerve or the tooth has become infected. People have between 1 and 4 canals in a tooth, and the number of canals and the anatomy of a tooth can vary. The word “endo” comes from Greek and means “inside” or “inside”.

Endodontists are highly trained in diagnosing cases of complex oral diseases, administering local anesthesia for deep pain control, treating non-surgical root canals with intricate internal anatomy, performing surgical procedures, treating trauma cases, preserving the vitality of the tooth to allow its full development, diagnosing various tooth fractures to provide the correct treatment, treating failed cases of the root canal, performing internal whitening to improve the color of the tooth when it is stained, treating postoperative pain, and consulting with general dentists for comprehensive treatment plans. The main purpose of endodontics is to preserve natural teeth. Our primary goal is to save your natural teeth whenever possible. We strive to provide our patients with the best possible care and treatment options so that they can keep their natural teeth for as long as possible.

We understand that your teeth are an important part of your overall health and wellbeing, so we strive to ensure that you receive the highest quality care available.
