Frequently Asked Questions

Is root canal treatment painful?
Root canal treatment does not cause pain, it relieves it. With modern technologies and advanced anesthetics techniques, root canal treatment is about as comfortable as having a filling done.
Why not just extract the tooth?
The very best option is to save your natural teeth. Root canal treatment, along with an appropriate restoration, is a cost-effective way to treat teeth with damaged pulps and is usually less expensive than extraction and placement of a bridge or a dental implant.
Why choose an Endodontists?
Endodontists are dental specialists with an additional two or more years of specialized training beyond dental school. Because they limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and precise. This helps equate to an overall positive experience for the patient.
