Endodontic Dental Services

Saving teeth everyday!

General Dentistry Patient

At Zealous Dental in Dayton, Ohio, we offer a wide range of endodontic services to help our patients maintain the health and function of their teeth. Endodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries that affect the dental pulp and the surrounding tissues. Our team of experienced endodontists use the latest techniques and technologies to provide our patients with the best possible care.

One of the most common endodontic procedures we perform is root canal therapy, which is used to remove infected or damaged tissue from inside the tooth and prevent the spread of infection. This involves removing the nerve and pulp from the tooth and sealing it with a filling or crown to prevent further damage.

In addition to root canal therapy, we also offer other endodontic treatments such as apicoectomy, which involves removing the tip of the tooth root to treat infection, and pulpotomy, which is a partial removal of the pulp in children to preserve the tooth. Our team also specializes in treating traumatic dental injuries, including cracked or broken teeth, which can be treated with a variety of restorative procedures such as bonding, crowns, or veneers.

At Zealous Dental, we understand the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums, which is why we provide comprehensive endodontic services to our patients. If you are experiencing dental pain or discomfort, don't hesitate to contact us and schedule an appointment with one of our experienced endodontists.

Common Questions About Endodontics

What's the difference between an Endodontist and a Periodontist?

While both endodontists and periodontists are dental specialists, they focus on different areas of the mouth. Endodontists specialize in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries that affect the dental pulp and the surrounding tissues. This includes procedures such as root canal therapy and treating traumatic dental injuries. On the other hand, periodontists specialize in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and conditions that affect the gums and the structures that support the teeth, such as the bones and ligaments. This includes procedures such as scaling and root planing, gum grafts, and periodontal surgery.

How long will a root canal last?

The longevity of a root canal depends on several factors such as the severity of the initial infection, the amount of remaining tooth structure, and how well the tooth is maintained with good oral hygiene practices. In general, a well-performed root canal by an experienced endodontist has a high success rate and can last for many years or even a lifetime with proper care. However, it is important to attend regular dental check-ups to ensure that the tooth is still in good condition and to address any issues early on if they arise.

Do you have to put a crown over a root canal?

In many cases, a dental crown is recommended after a root canal procedure. This is because the tooth structure can become weakened and brittle after the removal of the infected pulp and the drilling necessary to access it. A crown can provide additional support and protection to the remaining tooth structure, preventing further damage or fracture. However, in some cases, a crown may not be necessary if the remaining tooth structure is strong enough to support chewing forces without the risk of breaking. Your dentist or endodontist can best advise you on whether a crown is necessary for your specific case.
