Endodontist Raleigh NC
What is Endodontics?
Endodontics focuses on preserving teeth that have become damaged or diseased. Endodontic treatment may be necessary if the inside of your tooth (pulp or root canal) becomes infected or injured. This can be caused by decay, repeated dental procedures, cracks or trauma to the mouth. If left untreated, you may experience:
- Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
- Discoloration of the tooth
- Swelling or a draining pimple on the gums
In the majority of cases, your tooth can be saved from extraction through endodontic therapy. The chance of success increases when the problem is diagnosed and treated early. Talk to your dentist about treatment if you start noticing the symptoms of an infection listed above.
What Are Common Endodontic Procedures?
Endodontic procedures are usually performed to clean out infection and save the tooth. Glenwood Village Dentistry performs both routine procedures and complex surgeries, including:
- Root canal treatment
- Endodontic retreatment (Intentional replantation)
- Endodontic surgery (Apicoectomy)
- Traumatic dental injuries
- Dental implants
