An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in root canal treatment and the sensitive inner tissues of the teeth. We can diagnose and treat tooth pain and dental trauma, as well as perform microsurgery on the tips of a tooth's roots. Endodontists are often instrumental in saving natural teeth that otherwise would have to be extracted. Learn more about Endodontics.
Our Endodontic services include:

Root Canal Retreatment
Occasionally, as in any medical procedure, the body may not heal as we expect it to after a root canal treatment. If this happens, it may be in your best interest to repeat the procedure. Learn more about Root Canal Retreatment.
Root Canal Surgery (Apicoectomy)
An apicoectomy involves removing a small portion of the apex (tip) of a tooth root that has become infected by bacteria. Learn more about Root Canal Surgery.
Diagnosis of Tooth Pain & Sensitivity
If you are suffering from tooth pain or your teeth seem extra sensitive to temperature, touch, or sweet foods, we can help. The first step is to make an accurate diagnosis. Learn more about Tooth Sensitivity.
Whitening Traumatized Teeth
Achieving a pleasing, even shade of whiteness can be challenging when a tooth has been injured in the past. However, we can often achieve excellent results with internal bleaching. Learn more about Whitening Traumatized Teeth.
Emergency Dental Treatment
If you have a life-threatening or severe injury, call 911 or go directly to the nearest hospital emergency room. We can treat severe tooth pain and a variety of traumatic dental injuries, including teeth that have been moved, knocked out entirely and even cracked teeth. Please call our office for assistance.
