    We work with many PPO/HMO Insurance Plans

    Apexification:

    Procedure to make the Apex (the end of the root in the gum) form.    This service is common for under-formed teeth in children.

    Apical Surgery:

    Procedure to access a tooth via the gum.  Infected tissue is identified, removed and the gum closed.   This procedure is less typical, but performed with persistent post-endodontic disease (ie a normal treatment repeatedly fails).  

     

    Pulp Cap:

    A semi-common procedure where by only a portion of a root canal is performed such that only the infected part of pulp (nerve) is removed.

    Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT):

    Small Field Low Exposure Cat Scan  Imaging providing hard tissue and tooth in 3-D which can be used by your General Dentist or Specialist.

     

    Re-treatment:

    A service to re-access a tooth that previously under took an Endodontic therapy.  These  teeth may have been partial or fully treated and bacteria have re-entered the canals. This is usually due to decay or untreated canal areas. Symptoms can include swelling, pain on chewing. Sometimes, there is no pain involved, but your dentist may observe an issue during examination of your X-Ray. All re-treatments utilize our CBCT system.

  • Root Canal Therapy (Non-Surgical):

    A simple and common procedure that involves accessing a tooth and removing the infected pulp tissue with specialized files.   Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth such as deep decay cracks and chips. The canal is then disinfected,  filled and restored.

     

    IV Sedation:

    A relaxing element than can be added to any of our services  This enhanced anesthesia helps even the most apprehensive patient and minimizes the experience of the procedure. Most participants state they could not imagine procedures before this advancement.

    Trauma:

    Injuries to the mouth can cause teeth to be pushed back into the socket, partially out of the socket or completely knocked out.  Your General dentist or Endodontist can reposition the tooth and begin the root canal process by placing a medication inside it and eventually completing it.

    Cracked Teeth:

    Usually presents as pain upon chewing and temperature sensitivities.  Bacteria can penetrate

    through the fracture and infect the pulp. When this occurs a root canal should be completed prior to placing a crown on the tooth.  Sometimes a tooth can have a Vertical Root Fracture in which case it can not be treated.
