Endodontics

We provide a wide range of endodontic care options

Endodontics is a specific kind of dentistry that focuses on your tooth roots and nerves.

At DeCo Dental Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we’re happy to provide root canal therapy – and other types of endodontic treatment - to our patients.

If you suspect you may need a root canal, please continue reading to learn more about endodontics.

What does an endodontist do? Well, the center of a tooth contains a pulp, which is comprised of nerves, arterioles and tissues. If this pulp becomes diseased or damaged, an endodontist is trained to save the tooth with a root canal.

Not every tooth can be saved, and in those cases, an endodontist will recommend a bridge or dental implant. But endodontists do their best to save a natural tooth if at all possible.

The most common procedure in endodontics is a root canal, where the damaged pulp is removed and the space is sealed off.

But endodontic treatment is also required if someone has a cracked tooth or experiences any other dental trauma that affects the inner workings of a tooth.
