Compromised teeth, teeth that are damaged from infection or from an injury, may need to be thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent further decay. In consultation with your dentist, our endodontists will determine the best course of action for your needs.
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, with reduced discomfort, over traditional means.
Occasionally, pain may persist after a root canal, or might flare up months or years later. While root canal therapy is generally highly effective, a tooth with a complicated anatomy can make it difficult to fully eradicate decay, damage, or infection from causing problems. Endodontic treatment in Ellicott City is the next step in avoiding an extraction.
Sports injuries, car accidents, and other situations can cause damage to your teeth. 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
Access Endodontics in Howard County uses 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.
