Endodontic Dentistry is another name for the better know Root Canal.
If a cavity or break in a a tooth is large enough it will kill the nerve within the tooth and root canal therapy is required to save the tooth. Root canals can be performed on most teeth and basically it removes the nerve, blood supply and bacteria from within the sore or infected tooth. The canal is then sealed allowing the bone and ligament holding the tooth in place to repair and heal. Dr. Steve and Dr. Sarah use the most modern instrumentation methods to maximize the result and predictability of the procedure.
