Charlottesville Endodontics at Hollymead Dental Arts

Endodontics, more commonly known as "root canals," is the dental specialty concerned with treating the infected nerve tissue of teeth. Root canals are usually performed as a result of extensive decay, tooth damage or trauma to the teeth which results in an infection of the pulp. The root canal process includes reshaping and disinfecting the pulp chamber.

What most people don't realize is that root canals are actually quite painless. With the advances in dental technology today, having a root canal is no more invasive than a routine filling or crown. Local anesthesia in combination of oral or intravenous sedatives helps alleviate anxiety and makes the procedure very tolerable for patients of all ages.

In our Charlottesville dental office, our Charlottesville endodontists and oral surgeons preform all endodontic therapies with rubber dam isolation and a state-of-the-art surgical microscope, both, which facilitate a more comfortable experience and a highly successful outcome.
