Endodontic Specialist Near Me, Lake Forest CA

Endodontists are dental specialists that focus on the tooth pulp and the tissues involving the root structure. The pulp contains many of the nerves and blood vessels of the tooth. These tissues can become diseased or injured and once this occurs, the pulp is unable to repair itself. The damaged pulp will eventually die and can cause immense pain that will require a root canal to be treated.  Endodontics saves the tooth, helping to avoid the most common alternative to root canal treatment-an extraction.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Therapy is one of the most frequently performed dental procedures, with well over 14 million performed in the United States every year. Don’t believe the self-professed experts citing outdated research! This is a nearly painless, safe and reliable treatment, and can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

Root Canal Surgery

Endodontic Surgery can be used to locate fractures or treat hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth. Damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection.
