Dr. Jeffrey Chung and associates provide endodontic treatment to help save your teeth and improve your oral health. Endodontics is a field of dental care that focuses on treating the dental pulp, or the innermost layer of the tooth. This pulp contains the tooth’s living tissue and cells, tooth nerves, and blood vessels. When it becomes injured, infected or diseased, it can cause serious pain and discomfort and may eventually cause the tooth to die and need extraction.
Endodontic treatment works to remove the infected or diseased tissue so that you can avoid the need for an extraction. While there are several types of endodontic treatment available, the most common is root canal therapy. Root canal therapy involves removing infected tissue, cleaning the tooth and then sealing it against future decay. Treated teeth are usually capped with a dental crown to fully restore them.
Our dentists and team will do all we can to ensure that you are comfortable during your endodontic treatment. We use the latest treatment techniques and technologies in combination with sedation dentistry to minimize your discomfort and ensure that your treatment is as effective as possible.
