Our name tells you a lot about what we do, but not everything. Here at Root Canal Specialists, PC, we also perform apicoectomies, endodontic retreatment, as well as providing care for cracked, dislodged, and avulsed teeth. It’s all done in a state-of-the-art environment, which along with optional sedation, ensures that you will have a comfortable experience when you see our Preston endodontist.
Root canal therapy is designed to rescue a tooth that has sustained an infection, and is also the remedy of choice for a tooth that has suffered pulp damage from a traumatic injury. There are some misconceptions about the procedure that our Preston endodontist would like to clear up. First, it is not surgical. There is no cutting, nor stitches afterward. Second, it is not a scary process. Our office is equipped with the latest in technology, and the most advanced methods are used to make certain that you have very little to no discomfort at all. You can also get nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to stay relaxed and at ease. The success rate for root canal is over 90%, but that means there will be some that simply fail. That’s a fact. The good news is that with endodontic retreatment (doing the root canal again) or an apicoectomy (a surgical treatment), many such root canals can still be salvaged, allowing you to keep your tooth. Speaking of which, our Preston endodontist is also pleased to take care of cracked teeth, as well as the dental trauma such as when a tooth comes loose from its socket, either dislodged (still attached) or avulsed (completely free of the socket).
Of course, it’s not ideal when you have tooth pain or the need for endodontic treatment of any kind, but it should be reassuring to know that you have the gentle, specialized care that our office provides so that you can be confident in the outcome. Contact us for a prompt appointment.
