“Like others have said.. you don't want to come here but if you must it's really not that bad. I had an appointment with Dr. San Filippo. Very cool and very knowledgeable about what he's doing. I think it took longer for the shots to work then the procedure. I had a root canal yesterday and it was less painful than a cavity fillings I've had done in the past. Basically didn't feel anything. Staff is very nice and sympathetic to your pain. They must hear it a 100 times a day but they still care and want to make sure you're taken care of. If you have a choice then go see these people. You'll be very happy you did.”
“I was seen by Dr. Lee and I have to say that her treatment of me went way above and beyond in professional care. I've never had to have a root canal treatment and was extremely nervous. I also tend to need a lot of numbing, even for regular fillings, which I always make dentists aware of when I need them. Dr. Lee regularly checked on me to make sure I was okay and would immediately stop when I indicated I felt any sort of discomfort. While I'm sore today from the treatment, the throbbing pain of the toothache is completely gone and I was able to finally get a good night's sleep.”
“Having a doctor like Dr. Nguyen makes you actually want to get a root canal! First let me say that I hate going to the dentist. When I get my teeth cleaned I am counting the seconds until they finish. So, when I woke up one weekend with bad tooth pain, I was really hoping it would just go away on it's own. By Monday, it was clear that it was not, so off to my dentist I went. The dentist was pretty sure that I needed a root canal, so she called and got me into Endodontic Associates right away... The pain before you get a root canal is absolutely terrible, but the root canal process, in the hands of Dr. Nguyen, is great.”
Your teeth are actually composed of multiple layers, and the innermost one is called the dental pulp, which contains blood vessels, nerves, and various connective tissues. When this pulp becomes infected due to decay or trauma, a root canal is needed to treat it. With root canal therapy, your endodontist will gently remove the pulp, meticulously clean the interior of the tooth, and carefully fill the space before sealing it. This will save the tooth from being extracted and also relieve any dental pain.
Sometimes, after a tooth has been treated with a root canal, it may not heal properly, becoming infected and painful in the months or years that follow. If you have a tooth that still experiences problems after a root canal, we can help you. With endodontic retreatment, we can save your tooth and make sure it fully heals this time around. We’ll simply reopen the tooth, remove any infected tissue, and seal it with new filling materials to completely relieve your pain.
A tooth can become cracked due to an injury or just normal wear and tear, and this can cause a patient to experience a variety of symptoms including pain when chewing food or when the tooth is exposed to hot or cold temperatures. If one of your teeth has cracked, you should see an endodontist as soon as possible. Our endodontists are specially trained to save cracked teeth and can offer a variety of effective treatments. With our help, your tooth should be able to function normally for many years to come.
The apicoectomy procedure has been around for many years, but the name can be quite deceiving. Other than the basic idea, it’s very different from how it has been performed in the past. When done by an endodontist specifically trained in modern surgical endodontic techniques, an apicoectomy is a very precise and effective procedure. It requires the use of a surgical operating microscope, special micro-instruments, and the most advanced materials along with a special set of skills.
Dental injuries typically occur as the result of an accident or sports injury, and most of the time, they tend to be very minor. However, sometimes a tooth can become dislodged or even knocked out completely, and the neighboring teeth may have an additional, initially unnoticeable injury as well. Regardless of the extent of the injury, your tooth requires immediate examination. Our endodontists are specialists in treating traumatic dental injuries. If you have a cracked or injured tooth, time is of the essence. Please call us as soon as possible.
When you perform the kind of sensitive, highly-advanced dentistry that we do, you need the right tools for the job.

With these tools, we’ll be able to find, accurately diagnose, and treat your dental problem in a timely manner so you can get back to your life pain-free in less time. With us, you’ll only experience the very best of what modern-day dentistry has to offer.
