What is Endodontic Therapy?

If you are experiencing sudden discomfort, have a damaged or broken tooth, or other symptoms of discomfort, you might need root canal/endodontic therapy.

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

During root canal therapy in North St. Louis County with Dr. John Martin, rotten nerves and infected pulp from the area are removed, and filler is inserted to prevent future damage or infection from recurring. Generally, root canal 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.
