Saving Your Natural Teeth
Saving your natural tooth should always be your first choice when dental care is needed. Nothing, not even the most advanced bridges and implants, can truly replace your natural tooth.
Why Choose an Endodontist?
Endodontists are dentists with at least two additional years of advanced specialty education in diagnosis and root canal treatment.
Root Canal Myths
There are many misconceptions surrounding root canal (endodontic) treatment. The Connecticut Association of Endodontists wants you to have accurate information.
Endodontic treatment treats the inside of the tooth and can often be performed in one or two visits.
As occasionally happens with any dental or medical procedure, a tooth may not heal as expected after initial treatment for a variety of reasons.
Surgery can help save your tooth in a variety of situations. Surgery may also be performed to treat damaged root surfaces or surrounding bone.
Restoration After Endodontic Treatment
Once your root canal and any follow-up appointments are completed, you’ll need to return to your dentist for the final restoration to protect the tooth from cracks, fracture, and leakage.
With more sophisticated procedures, endodontists are helping people keep their teeth longer.
