Services from Endodontic Associates Saratoga
Endodontics is the dental specialty that focuses on treating the tissue inside of the tooth. This tissue, known as the pulp, can become damaged or disease for a number of reasons. A large cavity may leave the pulp exposed to infection. Trauma can damage the tissue, causing it to essentially die. Cracked tooth syndrome is a common problem. Our doctors can help treat these problems with root canal therapy, endodontic retreatment, and special endodontic services designed to help in cases of infection, abscess, and injury.
What to Expect During Your Visit
When you come in for your appointment, you’ll be greeted by our friendly staff and given a laptop on which to fill out the paperwork; our office is completely chartless. However, if you’re uncomfortable with using a computer, we can provide you with traditional forms to fill out instead and we will scan them into your electronic chart. You are taken back and introduced to the entire staff and X-rays are taken. Once our doctors get a complete briefing on your case and gets a look at your X-rays, if a root canal is indicated then treatment can begin. After treatment is complete, information will be sent to your dentist about the treatment. We will provide you with information for contacting the office after hours in case of complications, and you’ll revisit the office as directed for a follow-up appointment to make sure that treatment was successful.
If you’ve received a referral to our office from your dentist and need to make an appointment or have questions, contact us.
