Endodontics is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association, and specialists in this field receive extensive training in addressing problems involving tooth vitality and the preservation of natural teeth. You can rest assured that your smile is in the best of hands at our office.  We use leading edge technology and methods of care to provide you with the precise and effective treatment you require.

Every tooth contains an inner chamber, which houses the delicate living tissues that supply it with nutrients and innervation. When deep tooth decay or a dental injury causes irreversible damage to this inside region of a tooth, it’s important to provide the appropriate care before an infection or further problems ensue. If there is enough healthy tooth structure remaining to ultimately place a restoration, a root canal procedure is often recommended as the best course of care.  Since a fully developed tooth once it has erupted into place no longer requires the dental pulp to remain completely functional, by removing the damaged inner tissues and then sealing the canal with a biocompatible filling material you can effectively preserve your natural smile. With approximately 15 million root canals performed every year and a success rate that exceeds 95%, root canal therapy remains the best way to save a compromised tooth and avoid the need for a dental extraction.

At the office of East Coast Endodontics, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
