A SMILE TO LAST YOU A LIFETIME
Today’s advanced endodontic treatments and materials can give you a healthier, more complete smile that can last you a lifetime. Your endodontist can help you save your teeth, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted.
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
With the appropriate care, your teeth that have had endodontic treatment will last as long as other natural teeth. Yet, a tooth that has received treatment may fail to heal or pain may continue to exist.
Occasionally, root canals are not sufficient to heal the tooth. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection.
Cracked teeth demonstrate many types of symptoms, including pain when chewing, temperature sensitivities, or even the release of biting pressure.
Injuries to the mouth can cause teeth to be pushed back into their sockets. Your endodontist or general dentist may reposition and stabilize your tooth.
