Saving teeth from the inside out
Some like to think of endodontists as the lifeguards of teeth. That’s because of their ability to save teeth that have experienced such deep decay or damage that they might otherwise need to be extracted. Endodontists are specialists in caring for and treating diseases that affect the inside soft tissue of your teeth. Sometimes referred to as pulp specialists, they have extensive training in root canal therapy. Rather than having to remove the tooth itself when dealing with serious decay or injury, they instead can scoop out the damaged pulp or soft inner tissue at its center, then fill the remaining space with other material and seal the tooth. Thanks to innovations in root canal therapy, our endodontists are routinely able to save teeth to ensure a natural appearance and ongoing functionality.
