Here at Family Dental Associates we offer a vast array of orthodontic and dental services to better suit the needs of our patients in and around Pompano, Coconut Creek and Margate, Florida. We are a multi-specialty practice that prides themselves in quality. One of our specialties that we offer is Endodontics. An endodontist is a specialist in the area of soft tissue inside the tooth. Endodontists, who perform root canals, receive advanced education after graduating from dental school and typically only deal with endodontic-related problems.
A common misconception is that a root canal is an uncomfortable procedure. Actually, root canals are similar to having a cavity filled, producing minimal discomfort.
Common causes for the need of endodontic treatment:
- Inflamed/infected tooth pulp
- Severe sensitivity to hot and cold elements
- Tooth decay
- Chipped or broken tooth
- Blow to the tooth
- Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth
- Repeated dental procedures on a tooth
Should you have any additional questions on endodontics or any one of our other specialties please contact our office for an evaluation. We look forward to hearing from you!
