Endodontic treatments are the standard of care for those experiencing pain, inflammation, or discomfort relating to significant cavities, cracks, or chips in a tooth. The timely treatment offers the opportunity to save a tooth rather than having it extracted. More importantly, our endodontic services can help relieve severe pain and the potential health risks caused by an infected tooth. The interior tissue of a tooth may become aggravated as a result of tooth damage, trauma, or decay. Whether you’ve experienced dental trauma and are looking for help, or your dentist has referred you to us, we will assist. Contact our Ellicott City, Maryland office at 410.304.7226, or use our online resources to schedule an appointment and learn more about our endodontic treatment services.

Our Endodontists in Ellicott City

Endodontists are dentists with two to three additional years of training, particularly focused on diagnosing and treating problems associated with a tooth’s interior structure. Our endodontists, Dr. Lina Jarboe and Dr. Burton Waxman, have extensive experience with both surgical and nonsurgical endodontic techniques. Working together in partnership at Access Endodontics, they quickly and efficiently relieve patients’ pain and discomfort caused by infected teeth.

Our endodontists are respected for their compassion and genuine patient care. They are also well-known for leveraging the latest technology to maximize their treatment successes.

If you’re experiencing tooth pain or having a relapse of pain from a prior procedure, you might have concerns about whether the tooth needs to be extracted. We’ll do our best to save your tooth. With our leading-edge technology, there is an excellent chance that we will mitigate any persistent infection.

We Utilize Leading-Edge Technology

At Access Endodontics, we use Biolase dental lasers to perform endodontic treatment and related procedures. Biolase lasers are safe, effective, and gentle for treatments such as root canal therapy, retreatments, apicoectomies, biopsies, and irrigation and disinfection procedures.

The benefits of Biolase technology include:

  • Reducing treatment time and discomfort
  • An improved patient experience through enhanced precision and accuracy
  • Enhanced tissue removal capabilities for a more thorough cleaning of the affected area

Coupled with our gentle bedside manner, our state-of-the-art equipment enables us to provide advanced endodontic services in Howard County.

Access Endodontics Treatment Services

If you’re experiencing tooth infection or severe pain, or if your dentist recommends a visit to an endodontist, reach out to us today. We provide the necessary services you require. Teeth that have been compromised due to infection or injury may need thorough cleaning and sealing to prevent further decay. Working closely with your dentist, our team of endodontists will determine the most appropriate course of action to address your specific needs. We provide the following services to help you achieve better dental health:

Root Canal Therapy

Pain or discomfort can be relieved through root canal therapy. While the traditional root canal takes two visits to complete treatment, we’re able to accomplish the procedure in just one visit using the industry-leading Biolase technology. This advanced technology cleans the root canal with greater efficiency and reduces discomfort compared to traditional procedures.

Endodontic Retreatment

Occasionally, pain may persist after a root canal or might flare up months or years later. While root canal therapy is often highly effective, a tooth with complex anatomy can make it difficult to fully eradicate decay, damage, or infection, leading to problems down the line. A retreatment procedure at Access Endodontics in Ellicott City is the next step in avoiding an extraction.

Traumatic Dental Injury Services

Sports injuries, car accidents, and other situations can cause damage to your teeth. These cracked, chipped, or dislodged teeth can be prone to infections. If you’ve experienced dental trauma, an endodontist can correct the interior damage to your teeth.

Laser-Assisted Irrigation and Disinfection

We use Biolase to remove infected tissue from the interior of the teeth. Biolase is a fast, efficient, and virtually painless alternative to traditional root canal therapy. Faster recovery times, less bleeding, and a more comfortable experience are just some of the benefits of this technology.


Root end surgery is a minor procedure that focuses on the tooth’s root tip and adjacent tissue. This treatment typically occurs when a root canal cannot be performed. During an apicoectomy, the tooth is accessed through the gum, and the tip of the tooth’s root and infected tissue are removed. Once removed, the remaining tooth is sealed. The endodontist will suture the incision and provide you with post-surgery instructions.
