BUCKEYE  ENDODONTICS

If you are experiencing flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms, please call to reschedule your appointment Dr. Simpson always wears a mask to help prevent passing on any illness. 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 complex 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.

We hope the information on our website helps answer your questions about Endodontic treatment. You may visit the procedure page of this website to get additional information. We are confident it will help with your concerns and questions.  If you would like further information or to schedule an appointment at our office, please do not hesitate to contact us at our Office Phone Number: 614-488-3333 .  We know your time is valuable; therefore, our hours are by appointment only. The appointment time is reserved for you only. If you make an appointment, please ensure you can keep it. We do charge for missed appointments and for appointments that are canceled with less than a 24-hour notice. You may be rescheduled if you are tardy.  We know that dental insurance can be confusing. If we are not in-network providers with your insurance, we are upfront about your options.  You can still choose our office if we are out of network, but know we will have to collect a more considerable amount upfront. We are in-network with most dental insurance. 

We respect and understand that some patients have dental anxiety. When you call to schedule, please let us know, and we will explain what you can expect to help ease your dental fear. We have a few options Dr. Simpson can review with you at your evaluation appointment, if medication or IV sedation is needed. 

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 takes less than an hour and can attempt to save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. 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 sometimes 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 by a specialist will most likely be attempted first before any surgical procedure.  An evaluation is always needed before our practice’s surgical or apicoectomy appointment. For more information on root canal surgery or an apicoectomy, please visit our root canal surgery page.
