Providing Specialized Endodontic Care in Whittier, CA
What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is concerned with many of the most vital tissues inside and around teeth, including the dental pulp, teeth roots, nerves, and more.
These tissues keep teeth healthy and strong, and damage to them can affect many other structures in and around the mouth. When decay, infection, or injury weakens these vital areas, endodontists can help. Endodontic experts pride themselves as being “specialists in saving teeth,” and provide a number of procedures to heal damage to the mouth’s deepest tissues. Endodontic interventions are designed to eliminate infection and bacteria, restore teeth, heal gums, and more. This not only helps to restore a patient’s smile but also protects their long-term health.
At Whittier DSC in Whittier, CA, we use the most advanced techniques and technology to help and heal tooth roots, nerves, and surrounding tissue. Endodontists are specialists that continue their education and training after dental school for three years to diagnose and treat conditions specifically affecting dental pulp and surrounding tissues. This additional training and experience with the latest procedures allow endodontists to stop deeply embedded infections, diagnose complex oral health problems, restore oral health after injuries, and much more.
