At Associated Endodontists, P.C., we understand that endodontics may seem daunting or intimidating, but endodontic treatments are actually some of the most commonly performed in dentistry, and have been proven safe and effective. #Endodontists

An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in root canal therapy and endodontic surgery. To become an endodontic specialist, one must complete dental school plus an additional two or more years of advanced training in endodontics.

In some cases, the retreatment of a tooth that previously had a root canal is necessary for a healthy outcome. Retreatment may be required due to deep, narrow, curved or calcified roots which were unable to be seen during the initial root canal. #Endodontists

While a perfect smile and cosmetic appeal may be what most dental patients are looking for these days, you cannot begin an aesthetic overhaul if the foundation of the teeth is weak and decaying. Endodontics gets to the root of tooth pain, treating the pulp of the tooth and decontaminating the surrounding tissue. #Endodontists #EndodonticTreatment

There are several reasons why a tooth may need endodontic surgery:
- Persistent infection and/or pain that does not subside
- Root cracks
- Chronic tissue and/or a cyst
- Extremely narrow, curved or blocked canals that cannot be reached from above
- Extra canals or unique anatomy
- Repair- attempt to fix problems that occurred during the routine root canal treatment

Endodontic retreatment begins by re-entering the tooth to obtain access to the root canal filling material. This may include removal of restorative materials and a post/core. #Endodontist #EndodonticTreatment

There are various surgery options in #endodontics but the most common is known as an apicoectomy. This may be needed to eliminate infection or pain from the root apex (root end) and usually in combination with removal of periapical tissue. #Endodontist #EndodonticTreatment
