Better care from a specialist for you and your family

Why choose an endodontist over a general dentist for your root canal? If teeth are not properly treated, patients could encounter lifetime dental costs of $15,000-$20,000 per tooth, hours in the dental chair and future dental problems, such as periodontal disease. An endodontist may be able save a tooth from extraction by performing a root canal, removing the injured pulp (soft inner tissue) of the tooth and filling and sealing the space. Previous root canals that have failed can often be retreated.
