TREATMENT EXPLANATIONS

 
Evaluations & Consultations

Every patient comes to our offices with different needs. First visits begin with a comprehensive evaluation. Each patient is interviewed to discuss symptoms, health history and review potential treatment. Digital X-rays give the doctor a clear view of the “root of the problem.“ Once an individual treatment plan is made, an appointment is scheduled to get you back to a healthy smile.

Root Canal Treatment

 

Non-Surgical root canal treatment involves the endodontist making an access opening in the crown of the tooth to locate and remove access the injured or infected pulp material inside the root.  Once the pulp is removed, the canal is cleaned and shaped using very small instruments.  The endodontist then fills the canal  to seal it closed.

Root Canal Retreatment

 

Teeth treated endodontically can last for many years.  But sometimes the tooth does not heal as expected, new infection jeopardizes the tooth, restoration of the treated tooth was delayed, or for a host of other reasons a tooth may need retreatment. During the procedure the dentist removes previous restoration, cleans the canals, refills them and restores the tooth.

Minimally Invasive Microsurgery​

 

 

Surgical root canals are needed for various reasons such as: persistent bacteria or external root biofilm; “calcification” of the root or any situation that would make non surgical rootcanal treatment not possible. During a surgical root canal, the dentist opens the gum tissue. The treatment then occurs to the exposed root end and/or the surrounding bone tissue.
