While the words, “root canal” may still tend to elicit feelings of reticence among patients, the procedure actually remains the most effective ways of relieving severe dental pain and saving a natural tooth that has been compromised by injury or decay. And, despite lingering myths to the contrary, this routine procedure has been perfected into one of relative comfort thanks to multiple advancements in endodontic technology and care. At the office of East Coast Endodontics, our specialty-trained endodontist performs gentle, precise root canal therapy to help preserve your natural smile.
As a specialist with several years of advanced training in treating teeth where the vital tissues have been compromised, our endodontist is well equipped to address a wide spectrum of “root canal” needs. From performing a typical, straightforward root canal procedure to dealing with cases presenting more difficult challenges such as teeth with unusual anatomy, teeth that are hard to access, the management of calcified canals, or retreating treat that have had previous root canal procedures, our specialist provides a comprehensive spectrum of services to get patients back on the road to oral health. In addition to being specialty trained to offer all of the above mentioned types of care, Endodontists are also skilled at providing diagnostic and therapeutic services for the treatment of cracked or fractured teeth as well as for ones that have been dislodged or knocked out of their sockets. Furthermore, we provide the skilled care required to promote the completion of root development in situations where the vital tissues of a newly erupted permanent tooth have been exposed or damaged.
As part of our ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality of care, our office uses the most advanced 3D imaging systems along with operating microscopes to view, magnify and illuminate dental anatomy with the greatest of detail. Moreover, with the use of precision instrumentation and electronic apex locators, we are able to prepare and seal a tooth’s canal with the utmost exactitude for consistently reliable and successful treatment outcomes.
Of course, the most important thing for patients to remember is that root canal therapy is a beneficial procedure that relieves pain, helps to resolve infection, and prevents the extraction of a compromised tooth. With proper maintenance and care a tooth that has been treated with a root canal procedure can last a lifetime.
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.
