We are following the same protocols as always to help protect our patients and ourselves from all infectious diseases including COVID-19. We do ask that you work with us and follow the new protocols as well. You can feel free to wear a mask in the office but please refrain from wearing gloves into the building.  You can wash your hands in the restrooms before coming into the office. We still use disposables, still decontaminate between every patient, including all door handles. We are still continuing to use all the infection control precautions as required by law. We are currently seeing fewer patients a day so that we can follow the social distancing rules.

Our goal is to provide unsurpassed quality and we aim to exceed your expectations. Why should you choose an Endodontist? An Endodontist has at least 2 additional years of advanced and specialized training in diagnosis and root canal treatment. An Endodontist has a practice limited to Endodontics (root canals) and Endodontic related surgeries. Endodontists use their specialized training and experience in treating difficult cases, such as teeth with narrow or blocked canals, or unusual anatomy. This practice uses advanced technology, such as operating microscopes, digital imaging, and ultrasonics to perform these special services.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures with well over 14 million performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.  This procedure takes less than an hour. For more information on root canal treatment at our endodontic office, please visit our root canal page.

Root Canal Surgery / Apicoectomy

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 of the surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is called an apicoectomy.  An apicoectomy will not be performed on an initial visit. Retreatment (re-doing) of the initial root canal treatment will most likely be attempted first before any surgical procedure.  An evaluation is always needed prior to any surgical or apicoectomy appointment at our practice. For more information on root canal surgery or an apicoectomy, please visit our root canal surgery page.
