Why A Referral To Our Office?

Posted by

At the office of East Coast Endodontics, our goal is to help patients preserve their natural smiles. We offer the most precise and gentle care to save teeth in which either dental disease or injury have compromised their inner, vital tissues. Whether patients require a non-surgical root canal procedure, surgical root canal therapy, or treatment for an injured tooth, we provide the highest quality of care to get them back on the road to oral health.

There are several reasons why a general dentist or another dental specialist may refer a patient to our practice. Sometimes the anatomy or location of a tooth presents significant challenges for the performance of a root canal therapy, and the expertise of a specialist is required. On other occasions, a case is referred to our office when the canals inside the tooth are particularly intricate or narrow, making the access for treatment more difficult. Also, (as happens in a small percentage of cases) a tooth that has had a previous root canal procedure may be sent our way when the symptoms have not resolved, or a problem has recurred.

Advanced specialty training and leading-edge methods of care

 Endodontists are trained to address a wide range of problems affecting the vital tissues of the teeth and to use the most advanced diagnostic imaging technology to obtain a detailed view of the anatomy of the involved tooth and the surrounding jaw. Our office also uses surgical operating microscopes to provide superior illumination and visibility, allowing us to perform procedures with the utmost exactitude.

Armed with advanced skills and leading-edge technique, endodontists provide precise treatment for the best outcomes of care.  And, beyond providing non-surgical and surgical root canal therapy, endodontists also treat a range of challenging dental injuries, from avulsed teeth to chipped, cracked or fractured teeth.

With patient care and comfort are our top priorities; our practice also offers anxious patients options in dental sedation to help ensure a stress-free dental experience.

 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.
