What is Endodontic Therapy?

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

Endodontic therapy is designed to alleviate pressure from a damaged 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 pain is reported right away.

During root canal therapy in University City with Dr. John Martin, infected pulp or damaged nerves from the area are removed, and filler is inserted to prevent future damage or discomfort from recurring. Generally, 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.
