Endodontics

Endodontics is the area of general dentistry that concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of problems with the insides of the teeth, including the soft tissues known as dental pulp.

The most common endodontic procedure is the root canal which is performed to save the tooth when the tooth becomes infected due to decay, cracks, chips, or trauma. Root canals can save teeth that would otherwise have to be extracted.

Despite their reputation, root canals don't have to be painful. Dr. Naini uses only the most state of the art technology to provide you with the most sophisticated, effective and pain-free treatment possible. She will spend time with you before hand, explaining the procedure to you in detail and addressing any questions or concerns you may have. Paraffin treatments, blankets and other amenities can be made available to further ensure your comfort and relaxation. Sedation is also an option for more fearful patients. Dr. Naini even has a massage therapist on staff to massage patients in between procedures and while they are waiting. This is the Aesthetic Dental Spa difference.

Once you are ready to begin your root canal, Dr. Naini will administer local anesthetic as gently as possible and ensure your comfort once again before beginning the procedure. With the use of local anesthetic, a root canal offers virtually no discomfort. Treatment will usually be completed in as little as 1 to 2 hours, and you will leave the office with a healthier and improved smile. If necessary, Dr. Naini can prescribe pain medication to ease any tenderness you may feel after the procedure is completed.

"Dr. Naini and her staff are amazing.

They make you feel so comfy and relaxed, I forget I'm at the dentists!"
