What is Endodontic Therapy?

If you have sudden pain or pressure, have a cracked or chipped tooth, or other symptoms of discomfort, you might need root canal/endodontic therapy.

Endodontic therapy alleviates pressure from a broken or sensitive tooth or surrounding areas of the mouth, preserving as much of a patient's natural tooth as possible. In many circumstances, 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 endodontic therapy in Richmond Heights with Dr. John Martin, rotten nerves and infected pulp from the area are removed, and filler is placed in the space to prevent future damage or discomfort from recurring. Typically, root canal treatment takes one to two in-office sessions.

After the procedure(s), Dr. Martin will go over preventative maintenance and answer any questions that you might have.
