Endodontics and Root Canal Therapy
Discover Root Canal Treatments with our experienced Endodontist
When suffering from a tooth infection it is important to seek treatment to avoid further complications. Endodontic treatment, otherwise known as a “root canal” is a valuable treatment option for the prevention of tooth loss.
Performed by our Endodontic Specialist – Dr.Ryan Soden, root canals effectively eliminate infected tissue to preserve your natural teeth, and maintain your health. Read on to learn about our endodontic treatments, and how Dr.Soden can help preserve your smile.
What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is a dental specialty focusing on the tooth’s inner chamber that houses nerves and blood vessels, also known as the pulp. When these tissues become infected, an endodontist will work to eliminate the infection and preserve the natural tooth.
What is the Difference Between Dentists and Endodontists?
While general dentists perform root canal treatments, endodontists are skilled in treating complex cases regarding dental pulp. These specialists are experts in diagnosing and treating complications within the tooth’s chamber.
When referred to a skilled endodontist like our own Dr. Soden, patients will experience a higher level of precision treatment. We are able to utilize our advanced dental technology to ensure patients have a swifter, more comfortable procedure.
Why See an Endodontist?
Your general dentist will likely recommend you visit an endodontist if your case is complicated or severe. While not every toothache or infection will warrant a trip to the endodontist – it may be recommended by your dentist to properly assess sources of infection for the best prognosis. Endodontists are also often referred to in cases of root canal retreatment.
During a root canal Dr. Soden will remove any infected tissue from the tooth before thoroughly cleaning the area. A filling will then be placed to restore the tooth’s appearance and function – shielding it from unhealthy bacteria.
