What is endodontics?
Endodontic treatment is often a straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. Patients typically need treatment when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. Dr. Allen who specializes in such treatment carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a temporary filling to seal the space.
What happens after treatment?
Upon completion of your root canal, it is your responsibility to contact your general dentist for an appointment 2 weeks after treatment, for the permanent restoration.
