Why are you “managing” pain?

Immediately see a North Dallas endodontist to stop tooth pain, reduce the risk of further infection and regain your dental health!

What is an Endodontist?

An Endodontist is a dentist who has specialized in saving your natural teeth. Endodontists have two more years of specialized training that makes them experts in diagnosing the source of your tooth pain and taking care of issues relating to the inner structures of your tooth, the dental pulp. Specializing in root canal procedures and saving your natural tooth through the healing and repairing of a diseased tooth from the inside out, the American Association of Endodontics (AAE) calls endodontists the “superheroes of saving teeth.”

All North Dallas TX Endodontists are dentists but focus their practice solely on endodontic treatment. For this reason, our North Dallas endodontists will work with you and your dentist to ensure that you are receiving the personalized, high quality care that you deserve.

What is a root canal treatment?

Root canal treatments are performed to prevent or cure periradicular infection (infection in the bone adjacent to the roots). The basis is to eliminate bacterial infection that has entered the root system of the tooth. The tooth’s defense system can only tolerate so much insult. Therefore, if the infection is too great, symptoms and damage to the surrounding tissues will occur. On occasion, re-treatment of root canals or root end surgery (apicoectomy) is needed. This occurs when there is re-contamination or persistent infection due to anatomical variations of the root system. Most treatments are performed in one appointment. No additional preparatory measures are needed for treatment, in most cases. Patients typically return to work or daily duties immediately.

Why should I see an North Dallas endodontist?

All dentists, including your general dentist, received some training in endodontics while in dental school. Endodontists are specialists with two to three years of extra training beyond dental school who perform only endodontic procedures, both routine and complex. They are also experienced at finding the cause of oral and facial pain that is difficult to diagnose. Often, general dentists and other specialists refer patients needing endodontic treatment.

Are root canals painful?

No! Today’s root canal treatments don’t need to be painful. The advancements in technology have provided endodontists with tools to aid in administering profound anesthesia, therefore eliminating the fear and anxiety of treatment. Getting a root canal should be like any other routine visit to the dental office.

Treatment options other than a root canal?

If you are diagnosed with the need of a root canal or re-treatment of a root canal, you always have the option of having your tooth extracted. The options left if you chose to do so are: do nothing about the empty space or attain a removable partial, bridge, or implant. In many cases, unless you have the correct information, you might lose a tooth that could have otherwise been saved with a simple painless root canal procedure.

Why not just pull the tooth?

Complicated cases do not necessarily mean that your tooth needs to be extracted. Many endodontic treatments can save natural teeth for a lifetime. The consequences of extracting a natural tooth are not individual. It can affect the distribution of forces to the remaining teeth and cause more stress, resulting in a higher likelihood of damaging the adjacent teeth. Your teeth also tend to shift when they are not in contact with one another, resulting in unfavorable movement that causes food traps and cavities. A bridge or removable partial can be made by anchoring onto adjacent teeth, but this too can cause unfavorable stress and potentially damage the adjacent anchoring teeth. Implants, the more favorable of these options, can take six to eight months to complete and in many cases will also require bone grafting and additional surgeries. Before deciding what road to choose, be informed of your available options and consider what can be done to save your natural teeth.

How has a root canal changed over years?

With research and technological advances, the field of endodontics has seen some of the most advances of any dental specialty. The use of visual magnification through microscopes with enhanced lighting has allowed endodontists to locate anatomical variations that otherwise would be missed leading to the failure of root canals. CBCT is one of the most important innovations in dental diagnostics and has set an unprecedented standard of patient care. This eliminates the guess-work in diagnosis. Teeth that were suspicious of fractures or failing root canals can be analyzed to accurately determine what is going on and the correct treatment.

The home of North Dallas Endodontics and Endodontic Associates is the product of extensive research, thoughtful planning, and insightful vision. The dentists and staff put the fundamental concept of the endodontic office under the microscope, examining it with the same eye for detail and perfectionist discernment that underlies clinical excellence in endodontics. North Dallas Endodontics and Endodontic Associates enjoy a culture of compassion. The team wants patients to feel at ease and rest assured they will be taken care of. A technologically advanced office, the practice is state-of-the-art from its paperless records to the latest equipment which speak to its main focus—a painless and positive experience at every visit.
