Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

As an endodontic patient, what should I expect? A comprehensive examination is performed to diagnose orofacial pain and pulpal injury, and to determine if the tooth is a good candidate for endodontic therapy. Non-surgical treatment eliminates the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. Under certain circumstances, microsurgery may be indicated. We are experts in performing this procedure, and utilize sophisticated equipment to ensure the best result. Non Surgical Endodontic Treatment – Root Canal   What is a root canal? A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year.

Cracked Teeth

Cracked Teeth

Cracked teeth demonstrate many types of symptoms, including pain when chewing, temperature sensitivities, or even the release of biting pressure. It is also common for pain to come and go, making it difficult to diagnose the cause of discomfort. Chewing can cause movement of the cracked pieces of your tooth, and the pulp within the tooth becomes irritated. At the same time, when biting pressure is released, the crack can close quickly, resulting in sharp pain. Eventually, the pulp will become damaged and tooth will consistently hurt, even when you are not chewing. It is possible that cracks can lead to infection of the pulp tissue, which can spread to the bone and gum surrounding the problematic tooth.     Types of Cracks   Craze Lines These are tiny cracks that only affect the outer enamel of the tooth. These cracks are more common in adults. These types of cracks are superficial and are usually of no concern.   Fractured Cusp When a cusp becomes weakened, a fracture may...
