We utilize the latest technology and techniques in our root canal therapy, ensuring we are able to eliminate any and all harmful bacteria from the teeth of our patients.

Trained Endodontist Performs Root Canals

An endodontist is a dental professional that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of root canal issues. We will perform thorough exams and x-rays to help you determine the severity of your infection, as well as what type of treatment is necessary to return your teeth to an optimal state of health.

When a serious infection is left untreated for too long, it can eventually lead to the development of an abscess. If you want to avoid severe decay that can only be stopped with tooth removal, don't hesitate to consult our practice as soon as possible.

Multiple fillings, small cracks, and even minor chips can all lead to the infection of your root canal. We are more than qualified to help you identify signs of deep decay and help you get treated successfully.
