Emergency Dentist Delray Beach

Immediate treatment for your dental emergency.


One of the essential aspects of our practice is endodontics, a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on treating the innermost part of your teeth, known as the pulp. In this article, we'll delve into the world of endodontics, discussing what it entails, its benefits, the treatment process, and key considerations for a successful dental treatment.

What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a dental specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of issues involving the dental pulp, which contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. A common endodontic procedure is a root canal treatment, aimed at preserving a tooth that might otherwise require extraction due to infection, trauma, or decay.

The Endodontic Treatment Process:

  • Diagnosis: Our experienced team will conduct a thorough examination, which may involve digital imaging and clinical tests, to determine the extent of the pulp problem.

  • Local Anesthesia: Before the procedure, a local anesthetic is administered to ensure your comfort during treatment.

  • Access Opening: The dentist creates a small access opening in the tooth's crown to reach the pulp chamber.

  • Cleaning and Shaping: The infected or damaged pulp is carefully removed, and the inner space is cleaned, disinfected, and shaped.

  • Filling: The now-empty space is filled with a biocompatible material, sealing the tooth to prevent recontamination.

  • Restoration: In most cases, a dental crown is placed over the treated tooth to restore its strength, function, and appearance.
