Endodontics - Preserving Your Natural Teeth

Endodontics at Jenkins Dental focuses on treating the inside of the tooth, specifically the pulp and root canals. Our endodontic treatments, like root canal therapy, are designed to save teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted.


What Is Endodontics and Why Is It Important?

Endodontics involves treating dental pulp and surrounding tissues of the tooth. It's crucial for treating infections and damage within the tooth, which can cause pain and lead to tooth loss if untreated.

What Does Root Canal Treatment Involve?

Root canal treatment involves removing the infected or damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, and then filling and sealing it. This procedure saves the natural tooth and restores its functionality.

Is Root Canal Treatment Painful?

Modern root canal treatments are typically no more painful than having a filling. We use local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

How to Care for Your Tooth After Endodontic Treatment?

After treatment, it's important to practice good oral hygiene and schedule regular dental check-ups. Sometimes a follow-up restoration, like a crown, may be needed to protect the tooth.
