Welcome to patients' information page.


Most of our procedures take approximately one and a half hours. Some procedures can be completed in one appointment while others require a follow-up appointment. Each case is unique and we base our treatment plan on the most appropriate procedure(s) for your long-term dental health.
Our role as specialists is to treat you for your endodontic needs and to refer you back to your dentist. Even though we will relieve you of your discomfort, your treatment is not complete until you return to your dentist for any necessary restorative treatment.

By referring you to our office, your dentist has shown their concern that you receive the finest endodontic care possible. Every effort is made to accommodate each patient on a timely basis.
We treat emergencies promptly and guarantee that all patients experiencing an emergency will be seen within 24 hours of referral. Unscheduled emergency visits can sometimes delay regular appointments and your understanding is greatly appreciated.

We also understand that root canals can come up unexpectedly and we would like to make this process as easy as possible.

After endodontic treatment.

There are usually no restrictions after the procedure concerning driving or returning to work. You may experience tenderness to your tooth and the surroundings gingiva for 3-7 days. The prescribed medication will reduce any discomfort. Should you experience discomfort that cannot be controlled with medications, or should swelling develop, please contact our office immediately. It is normal for a thin layer of temporary filling to be worn away. Small depression in the filling could be noticeable. Please call our office if the temporary filling falls out. You should get your tooth covered with a permanent filling by your regular dentist within 1-2 weeks after the completion of the root canal. Do not chew on the side of the treated tooth until then. Continue to brush and floss normally. A complete report of treatment will be sent to your general dentist.

Included in your treatment are follow-up examinations to evaluate the progress of healing. These appointments require only a few minutes and no additional fee will be charged.
