Should you require root canal therapy, you should know that most endodontic procedures can be completed in-house at State of the Art Dental Group. This prevents the need to refer you to an off-site endodontist, which can potentially increase your cost of care.
Why Do I Need a Root Canal?
A root canal is used to preserve teeth that have been damaged by:
Severe internal infection (abscesses)
Traumatized, dying nerves
Large areas of tooth decay
Extensive, deep dental restorations
Gentle Root Canal Therapy
If your tooth is suffering from a large crack, cavity, severe pain, or an abscess, Dr. Pinsky may recommend endodontic therapy to save it. If the idea of a root canal makes you feel nervous, don’t let it! Root canal therapy is a relatively painless procedure. Your comfort is always our priority. Once your procedure is completed, a dental crown will be placed to protect your tooth from further damage.
Infected tooth and abcess
Tooth cleaned and shaped
Root filling replaced
Permanent filling or crown placed
Dr. Pinsky uses advanced technology that decreases the length of most root canal appointments by 50%. WaveOne Technology reduces the amount of manual manipulation that is needed during the preparation of the nerve chamber. This creates a faster, cleaner, more accurate root canal site.
