You have been referred to our office by your dentist to either determine the need for a root canal or to treat and/or retreat one. In either case, it is always our policy to confirm your dentist's diagnosis prior to any treatment.
Our office is an endodontic specialty office. Therefore, it is our goal to try to save your tooth by performing endodontic procedures commonly called "root canal". Basically, this means removing the dead or diseased tissues from the small channels in the root of the tooth and replacing it with a special filling material.
The majority of root canals treated in our office will be completed in one visit. On some occasions (excessive infection or very difficult teeth), you may be asked to return for another visit. Please be assured that if any differences in treatment or unforseen complications arise, this will be discussed with you during or after the treatment.
IT IS NECESSARY TO RETURN TO YOUR DENTIST FOR PROPER RESTORATION OF THE TOOTH UPON COMPLETION OF YOUR ROOT CANAL.
We make every effort to adhere to your scheduled treatment time, but an occasional emergency toothache or a very difficult tooth will cause us to have slight delays. Should this occur, we thank you in advance for your patience.
