What Sets Access Endodontics Apart

What is an endodontist? These dental specialists go through two to three years of additional training so that they may diagnose and treat issues relating to the interior structure of a tooth.

Our highly experienced endodontists, Dr. Burton M. Waxman, D.D.S. and Dr. Lina Jarboe, D.D.S., M.S., P.A., quickly relieve the discomfort that can accompany a broken, cracked, or infected tooth.

A traditional root canal takes two visits to complete. However, our approach using Biolase allows us to complete a root canal in just one visit to our office. Biolase is efficient and highly effective. For patients who have had a root canal in the past but are still experiencing pain or discomfort, endodontic retreatment using Biolase ensures that the tooth is thoroughly disinfected.

Our top-of-the-line technology and gentle chairside manner will make Access Endodontics the premier endodontist in Howard County. We pride ourselves on helping patients feel comfortable in our office through personalized care and a high level of courtesy. If you have a compromised tooth, we’ll do everything we can to restore it. We’ll also be honest about what your individual situation requires and won’t recommend unnecessary treatments or procedures. If concerns about the cost of a root canal or other endodontic procedures have kept you from getting the help you need, contact Access Endodontics today.

Our Services

Root Canal

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. We offer relief by performing root canal treatment/therapy. This procedure includes removing the compromised or infected pulp and thoroughly cleaning the canal. Then we seal the prepared tooth. After the root canal is complete, a crown or bonded filling is placed into position to cover the tooth.

Endodontic Retreatment

Sometimes, a tooth that has had root canal treatment may not heal properly, requiring an additional treatment. Using our laser-assisted approach, we clean out the infected material and disinfect the interior before sealing the tooth.

Cracked Teeth and Traumatic Injuries

Traumatic dental injuries often occur in accidents or sports-related injuries. Chipped, broken, cracked, or dislodged teeth can result from a blow to the face. Root canal treatment can relieve pain and protect the tooth from further damage or decay.

Laser-Assisted Irrigation and Disinfection

We incorporate Biolase in root canal procedures to quickly disinfect the tooth and to promote healing. This allows our team to be efficient during root canals and to relieve pain quickly.


Endodontic surgery can be used to locate small fractures or hidden canals that weren’t detected on x-rays or during previous treatment. An apicoectomy, or root end surgery, removes the very tip of the tooth’s root and adjacent tissues in an effort to save the problematic tooth.
