We provide the highest quality endodontic therapy for adult patients. Endodontics is the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental pulp diseases. Endodontic therapy (root canal therapy) is a sequence of treatments to remove the pulp from a tooth to eliminate infection and protect it from future infections. Without treatment, the dental pulp infection will spread to the bone surrounding the tooth and beyond.
The procedure is usually painless when done correctly. Garelick offers sedation dentistry for those who may be anxious or who prefer to sleep during the procedure. The dental crown is crafted to complete the restoration of the natural tooth. The process is usually extended over several visits to make sure that the infected pulp and associated bacteria have been eliminated.
Garelick will help you decide which treatment is most suitable for your comfort and crown replacement options (for example, dental implants offer an alternative to endodontic therapy). In some cases, dental implant surgery may be preferred and provide a safer anchor for crown replacements. Only a qualified dentist, after examining the patient's unique condition, can help you decide which treatment is best. These are just a few of the possible conditions where endodontists provide a more detailed level of care.
Endodontists have the experience to do more than just clean a tooth. If a patient has problems with a broken or cracked tooth, the damage can extend to the pulp. Once the damage reaches the tooth pulp, the pain will intensify and eventually lead to infection. At Dental Arts of Chandler in Chandler, Arizona, we offer you and your family the most advanced and affordable dental treatment options available.
When endodontic treatment isn't possible, our endodontists can provide other dental treatments to maintain tooth health.
