Teeth can become endodontically involved for a number of reasons; the most common are decay and trauma. A tooth can require endodontics, and we may not know the exact cause, but the most common is infection that may go undetected. Regardless of the cause, our dentists must treat the tooth in order to save it.

Superior Endodontic Care for Patients in WV, VA, KY, & OH
Working closely with the dentist can mean that we will keep you comfortable while getting endodontic treatment. Delaying care for an abscessed tooth can lead to gum swelling and discomfort. This can happen with teeth that have had an untreated infection for a long time.
Delaying proper care always complicates treatment. Like Dr. Mark always tells his patients, “If you have a leak in your roof, waiting only makes it more expensive and harder to correct. If you think quality care is expensive, try neglect.”
The moral to the story is to get treatment early on a tooth that is compromised. You will save your teeth, your time, and your money! Patients in WV, VA, KY, & OH trust Simpson Dental for superior endodontic care.
Apicoectomy or Surgical Endodontics
On a rare occasion, a tooth with a root canal can become re-infected. This could be caused by a defective restoration or leaking. This is usually resolved by a minor surgical procedure called an apicoectomy. Surgical endodontics is performed to reseal the apex of the root. Often, the restoration may need to be replaced.
