Endodontic services are most often characterized by those dental services that diagnose and treat tooth pain. This specialized area of dentistry focuses on what is going on inside your tooth, rather than any conditions that affect the gums, bones or supporting ligaments.
Endodontists continue their education after dental school to focus on diagnosing tooth pain, practice the art of root canal treatments and learning other procedures centered on the interior of a tooth. When a general dentist refers patients to see an endodontist, the hope is that an endodontic treatment can save the diseased tooth and therefore not force it to be removed.
South Gables Dental works with one of the best endodontists in Coral Gables, utilizes advanced dental technology and our staff is highly trained to provide you with superior service along with quality dental care both during your general dental visit and any subsequent visits to the practice to see our endodontist.
Endodontists repair infected or damaged teeth, primarily with three typical procedures: a root canal, pulpectomies and apicoectomies.
The most common endodontic service that endodontists perform is root canal treatments. Rather than remove the entire tooth, endodontists drill into the tooth to remove the infected nerve, clean and dry the nerve chamber and canals, and then seal the tooth to protect it from bacteria in the future.
Another type of endodontic service includes pulpectomies. While endodontists also have to drill into the tooth for pulpectomies, the procedure differs from a root canal in that the endodontist applies a medicated paste to the area. This salve alleviates the pain in the tooth and helps to heal the infection.
In addition, during an apicoectomy, the endodontist surgically removes the tip of the root of the tooth, also called the apex.
