Root Canal Therapy
Coastal Endodontics believes in saving teeth, comfortably! As specialists, we do things differently than others to make sure our patients have a comfortable experience. We utilize 3D CBCT imaging and digital radiographs along with superior clinic judgement to diagnose the presenting condition.
Using technologically advanced surgical microscopes, computer-generated anesthesia, and laser therapy, our Endodontists comfortably remove the injured or diseased tissues in the tooth known as the “pulp”. The disinfected space in the tooth is then filled with a rubber based, FDA-approved material called gutta-percha.
Healing will generally be complete in about 48 hours and the tooth will function just like other vital teeth, but will no longer be connected to your nervous system. The tooth will often need to be restored with your general dentist to ensure an adequate permanent seal is in place-usually in the form of a crown or “cap”.
The Endodontist will go over the follow up instructions at the completion of treatment. Our staff will then call in two days to make sure there is health & healing occurring. Each patient or guardian is given the contact number for their their treating doctor, should any questions arise.
Are You Experiencing Tooth Pain or Sensitivity?
Pain in your tooth or gums may be a symptom of infected pulp. Drs. Lea, Ferreira and Lindsey can perform a Root Canal to treat the infected pulp, relieve pain, and save your natural teeth!
