Endodontics

(root canal therapy)

 

 


The most common cause of a toothache comes from nerve pain in a tooth. Whether from an accident, a deep cavity, multiple fillings, or excessive grinding and clenching, nerves in teeth may become irreversibly inflamed and irritated. When this occurs, pressure in the tooth is created without any way out. This can cause severe pain.

Root Canal Therapy lets patients keep teeth that might otherwise need extraction. The process involves removing the nerve tissue while leaving the remaining tooth structure intact. Teeth with root canals often have the same longevity as other teeth.

Dr. Avis’s involvement with restoring severely debilitated teeth inspired him to advanced training in root canal therapy. Dr. Avis uses the most modern rotary and electronic instrumentation. This means the great majority of root canals are provided painlessly. Furthermore, procedures that used to take three to four visits are now typically finished in one to two visits.
