“An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in saving teeth.” — American Dental Association
Endodontics includes procedures that deal with the dental pulp and the tissues surrounding the roots of teeth. Endodontics also deals with salvaging teeth that have suffered damage from trauma or accident, as well as teeth that are cracked or severely chipped. Sacramento’s Marconi Dental Group includes an endodontist, and a master lab technician to supply crowns, for all endodontic procedures.
Typical Endodontic Treatments
Our dentists and endodontist may help you with any of the following endodontic treatments:
- Root canal procedures
- Root canal retreatment
- Internal tooth whitening
- Repairing cracked teeth
These are by no means the only procedures performed under the umbrella of endodontics. Anything that involves saving a tooth from extraction or dealing with the roots and surrounding gum tissue is part of dental training in endodontics.
