Endodontics is the dental specialty that concentrates on the study and treatment of the dental pulp. The most common endodontic treatment is endodontic therapy, commonly referred to as root canal therapy (or “a root canal). Endodontists perform a variety of other procedures including treatment for cracked teeth, dental trauma, and endodontic retreatment. Dr. Mitul Patel is a board certified Doctor of Dental Surgery and is highly qualified to provide root canal therapy as well as other endodontic procedures including complete restorative dental care.
Severe tooth pain is the most common symptom that indicates endodontic treatment is necessary. Sensitivity to heat or cold, teeth discoloration, and swelling or tenderness of the gums are also signs that endodontic treatment is needed. It is very important for people to understand that they should not allow any of these signs or symptoms continue without seeing an endodontic dental expert. Failure to get adequate endodontic treatment in a timely manner can lead to serious dental issues such as abscessed teeth and tooth loss. An infection in the root of the tooth can also spread very easily via tissue and the blood stream to other areas of the body, leading to diseases such as heart disease and kidney failure.
