As a patient, you likely think of your general dentist or hygienist as your partner in your dental

It is likely that you were originally referred to our office by your general dentist because you
needed root canal treatment. Endodontists specialize in performing root canal therapy to help
save an infected tooth from extraction. However, this is not our only area of expertise. As an
endodontist, our doctor’s specialty training also focused heavily on providing effective treatment
for dental trauma.

Damage or trauma to the teeth, mouth, or jaws can range from very mild to extreme. Our office
is available for expert consultation, evaluation, and treatment of dental trauma, often extending
beyond normal business hours. If you or your child experience dental trauma, contact our office
and your general dentist immediately, so you can be seen and treated as soon as possible.

Dental trauma includes:

  •  Chipped tooth 
  •  Cracked or fractured tooth 
  •  Knocked-out tooth 
  •  Soft tissue injury to gums, lips, cheek, or tongue 
  •  Jaw bone injury 
  •  Damage to dental restoration 
  •  And more

As one of your partners in dental health, our team is happy to provide you with any information
you need regarding the services we offer. Whether you need a quick appointment for dental
trauma treatment, root canal therapy to stop the pain from an infected tooth, or a second opinion
on whether a tooth needs to be extracted, we are here to help.
