Endodontics is a specialty of dentistry that involves treatment of diseases of the tooth pulp (root canal system), thus the name “root canal therapy”. Commonly perceived as a painful procedure, a “root canal” is often the humorous standard to which unpleasant tasks in life are compared. Modern endodontics, however, allow us to treat the majority of teeth with little discomfort. Nonetheless, we realize you may not be looking forward to your visit wo we will make every effort to ensure your comfort, see you promptly, and provide you with the best possible care. – Wayne M.

Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. The most common reasons for inflammation or infection are deep cavities (caries), repeated dental procedures, cracks or chips. Trauma can also cause inflammation and often shows up as discoloration of the tooth. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

Indications for treatment include prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling or tenderness of the tooth or adjacent gums. Sometimes there are no symptoms.
