Endodontics (Root Canal): The Secret To Saving Smiles
Endodontics, which is commonly known as root canal therapy, is the branch of dentistry that focuses on diseases and injuries of dental pulp, the soft tissues inside every tooth. Its purpose is to save a natural tooth, heal infection, and to relieve pain.
With incredible efficiency and beautiful esthetics, all of your 32 natural teeth are designed to help you chew and smile with incredible efficiency and confidence. At P+E Dental, we’re thrilled that crowns and bridges were invented so that we can fully restore damaged and missing teeth to their maximum beauty and performance.
Did you know that more than 14 million teeth receive endodontic treatment each year? By choosing endodontic treatment, you are making the decision to keep your natural teeth, which is really important as it gives you the ability to…
- chew a variety of foods so that you don’t have to give up your favorites and so that you receive a full range of nutrition – no compromising due to discomfort and inability to chew
- bite cleanly and confidently – no avoiding foods, especially in public, which allows you to relax and enjoy meals in the company of friends and colleagues
- speak clearly and without pain
- laugh with ease and confidence – no more covering your mouth due to the embarrassment of discolored teeth or pain.
