Laurel Endodontics: Give Your Tooth a Chance!
Nothing is as good as your natural tooth. Endodontics is a specialty in dentistry that specializes in saving your natural teeth, after the tissue inside of your tooth (i.e. the "pulp") has been diseased or injured. Not so long ago, many teeth which were diseased or injured were simply extracted. However, teeth today can be saved through modern root canal treatment. And contrary to popular belief, modern root canal treatment is very similar to having a routine filling – you may expect little to no discomfort!
If your dentist recommends you have you have your tooth pulled, ask if root canal treatment may be an option for you. Root canal treatment is usually completed in one to two appointments. At Laurel Endodontics, we like to say "give your tooth a chance!"
