At Santa Rosa Endodontics, we strive to save as much of the tooth as possible. Far too often, people will avoid seeking treatment out of fear of a dental checkup or the false idea of what a root canal is like. Thus, their teeth get into bad enough of a condition that an extraction is the only option. By seeking our treatment early on, we can remove the infected part of a tooth while allowing most of the tooth to remain in the mouth. The procedure itself is painless with only minor soreness after.
Our team has the skills, expertise and tools necessary to help patients keep their natural teeth and maintain a healthy smile. As an endodontist, we can help treat the inside of the tooth. By preserving as much of the tooth as possible, we can help patients continue to have functional and healthy teeth for years to come.
