Proper diagnosis is the most important part of your treatment. Oral pain such as toothaches or cracked/fractured teeth can often be difficult to pinpoint. Because of the vast network of nerves in the mouth, the pain of a damaged or diseased tooth often is felt in another tooth and/or in the head, neck or ear. An endodontist is a specialist in diagnosing and treating this type of pain.
Commonly referred to as “root canals,” endodontic therapy is a common procedure that can address a variety of issues within the pulp of a tooth. With today’s technology, root canals are generally very comfortable procedures.
Endodontic retreatment addresses teeth that were not completely corrected during or did not heal appropriately from earlier treatment.
Endodontic surgery is sometimes needed to locate tiny fractures that can’t be found via x-ray. Other times, endodontic surgery is needed to treat the ends of roots and surrounding bone.
We treat a variety of traumatic tooth injuries, like chipped teeth, dislodged teeth, and fractured teeth. If you experience a traumatic tooth injury, be sure to seek care as quickly as possible.
Internal bleaching is whitening the tooth from the inside out! It can be performed as part of a root canal procedure.
At Scott Endodontics we utilize the latest technology to provide you with the best care. Technology such as the Surgical Operating Microscope, Digital Radiographs, Cone Beam Computed Tomography, and Ultrasonic Endodontic Instruments, are just some of the tools that we use to help us manage your case.
