What is Endodontic Therapy?

If you are experiencing sudden pain or pressure in your upper or lower jaw, have a cracked or chipped tooth, or other symptoms of discomfort, you might need root canal/endodontic therapy in St. Louis, Missouri.

Endodontic therapy is designed to alleviate pressure from a damaged tooth or surrounding areas of the mouth, saving as much of a patient's natural tooth as possible. In many cases, most of a person's natural tooth can be saved if symptoms of discomfort are reported at the first sign of pain or discomfort.

During endodontic therapy in St. Louis with Dr. John Martin, infected pulp or damaged nerves from the area are removed, and filler is placed in the space to prevent future infection or discomfort from recurring. Typically, endodontic treatment takes one to two in-office sessions.

After the procedure(s), Dr. Martin will go over maintenance techniques to prevent further issues with your oral health and answer any questions that you might have or address lingering concerns.
