What Is Endodontics?
Endodontics is a dental specialty that involves the pulp found deep inside the tooth. When bacteria and tooth decay reach this area, it can lead to severe toothaches and signs of abscesses. These both should prompt patients to seek dental attention - or risk losing the tooth altogether.
There are many advanced procedures, such as root canal treatment, endodontic retreatment, and pulpotomies that can help to remove infection and decay while restoring the tooth and overall oral health.
The highly skilled specialists at Forest Lake Endodontics, offer a long list of procedures to meet the endodontic needs of our patients, including:
We also offer endodontic treatments using the GentleWave System. Using sound waves and cleaning fluids, the infection and decay can be cleared out of your tooth in a very minimally invasive way. This is not only as effective as traditional root canal treatment, but it also allows more of the tooth to be preserved.
