It’s About You!

You are unique and your situation is unique as well. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” treatment philosophy. We want to provide you with the best treatment options tailored for your specific needs. We have designed our office with your comfort in mind-from the color of the walls to the the Tempur-Pedic chairs, we go to great lengths to make your visit as stress-free and as comfortable as possible. We understand that you may be highly anxious about having endodontic therapy. We use advance anesthetic techniques to ensure that your root canal treatment is comfortable. For the very phobic and anxious adult patients, you may be presented with an option to have Nitrous Gas and Oral Conscious Sedation. For those who are extremely anxious, we also offer IV/conscious sedation, whereby most patients will not remember their treatment at all.

All of our treatments begin with a complete evaluation. Diagnosing oral and facial pain can be very complex and we want to spend the time to determine if endodontic therapy is right for you. With the help of digital radiography, the dental operating microscope, and clinical photography, and 3D Cone Beam CT scanning, we show each patient exactly what is going on in and around their teeth. Each tool plays an important role in helping the patient to understand and visualize the problem. With this level of information, our patients are informed and confident in their treatment. Read the tab below (Our Office Technology: The Modern Approach to Endodontics) to learn more about the cutting edge technology we use.

Many times, we can treat sensitivity with more conservative approaches. Root canal therapy is not always the best option in every situation, and we will not hesitate to recommend other treatment options when they are more appropriate. Rest assured, that we will answer all of your questions and address any concerns that you might have. If you are in pain, we will do everything in our power to make you comfortable. Above all, we value the confidence and trust between doctor and patient. We believe that this is a vital part of a truly positive and healing treatment experience.
