As a patient, you likely think of your general dentist or hygienist as your partner in your dental  health. These are people you see frequently, who monitor your oral health during each visit and  talk with you regarding any progress or potential issues that they find. While both of these dental professionals are vital, your endodontist can be a valuable partner in ensuring your oral health, as  well. 

It is likely that you were originally referred to our office by your general dentist because you needed root canal treatment. Endodontists specialize in performing root canal therapy to help save an infected tooth from extraction. However, this is not our only area of expertise. As an endodontist, our doctor’s specialty training also focused heavily on providing effective treatment for dental trauma. 

Damage or trauma to the teeth, mouth, or jaws can range from very mild to extreme. Our office is available for expert consultation, evaluation, and treatment of dental trauma, often extending  beyond normal business hours. If you or your child experience dental trauma, contact our office and your general dentist immediately, so you can be seen and treated as soon as possible. 

Dental trauma includes: 

● Chipped tooth 

● Cracked or fractured tooth 

● Knocked-out tooth 

● Soft tissue injury to gums, lips, cheek, or tongue 

● Jaw bone injury 

● Damage to dental restoration 

● And more 

As one of your partners in dental health, our team is happy to provide you with any information  you need regarding the services we offer. Whether you need a quick appointment for dental  trauma treatment, root canal therapy to stop the pain from an infected tooth, or a second opinion on whether a tooth needs to be extracted, we are here to help. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact our office.
