Endodontics is the dental specialty dealing with the treatment of problems related to the soft tissue located within the roots of a tooth. The root canal specialists at Endodontic Associates of Greater Washington and their team provide services that will allow you to maintain your teeth and keep them for a lifetime.
Conventional Root Canal Treatment (Read More)
Pulp is soft tissue made up of blood vessels and nerves. It is located inside the root canal of your tooth. The pulp helps your tooth grow, but it is not needed once your tooth is fully developed. If the pulp gets infected, it needs to be removed. This procedure is referred to as conventional root canal treatment.
Surgical Root Canal Treatment (Read More)
When conventional root canal treatment cannot be done or has not been successful, a surgical root canal procedure may need to be performed. Surgery may be done to check the end of the root for cracks, to remove parts of the root that could not be removed during conventional root canal treatment, or to clear up an infection that has not healed after conventional treatment.
Endodontic Retreatment (Read More)
In some cases, a tooth that has received endodontic treatment fails to heal or remains painful. Occasionally, the tooth becomes painful or diseased months or even years after successful treatment. If your tooth has failed to heal or has developed new problems, you have a second chance. Another endodontic procedure may be able to save your tooth.
