What is
Endodontics?

Endodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the internal structures of teeth, with a primary emphasis on the preservation and care of dental pulp. Dental pulp is a vital part of the tooth, providing essential nourishment for its growth and stability. Through meticulous endodontic therapy, our skilled team can safeguard the integrity of this crucial component by effectively removing decay, bacteria, and trauma-related damage.

These advanced procedures not only help prevent the need for tooth extractions but also ensure that your teeth can continue to function normally. Neglecting the proper treatment of dental pulp can lead to rapid decay and further complications if left untreated. Thankfully, our dedicated professionals are here to offer exceptional endodontic care, ensuring the restoration of your teeth’s optimal health.

Gentle Root Canal Therapy

As part of our comprehensive endodontic care, we offer effective root canal therapy. When a dental crown isn’t enough to restore deep decay, root canal therapy is a pain-relieving and tooth-preserving solution. Infected dental pulp is removed and comfortably sealed for lasting protection. By choosing root canal therapy, you can not only find relief from discomfort but also preserve your natural tooth, ensuring the integrity of your smile.

At Washington Square Dental, we’re committed to helping our patients achieve not only a beautiful smile, but optimal dental health. Let us show you how our orthodontic services can benefit you beyond appearances.

Pulpectomy Treatment

A pulpectomy treatment is designed to address infected dental pulp in teeth where complete root canal therapy may not be required. During a pulpectomy, the infected pulp or soft tissue is carefully removed from the tooth, and the area is then filled with a protective material. Unlike full root canal treatment, a pulpectomy can often be completed in a shorter visit, as it does not involve the placement of a dental crown

Pulpectomies are also commonly recommended for baby teeth in order to preserve their functionality and overall oral health. By opting for a pulpectomy, early tooth extraction can be avoided, and the integrity of the tooth can be maintained until it naturally falls out.
