Root Canal Treatment

This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. For more information on root canal treatment at either of our office locations, please visit our root canal page.

Root Canal Surgery 

Endodontic (root canal) surgery can be used to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth. Damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection.
