Our primary goal is to save your natural teeth whenever possible. We offer a wide range of endodontic procedures that treat the pulp and surrounding tissues of a tooth. When decay has reached the nerve of the tooth or the tooth has become infected,  Dr. Noreika can help prevent further damage while restoring the function of the tooth and beauty of your smile. 

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal or endodontic treatment may be necessary when the pulp tissue inside the root canals of a tooth becomes infected or damaged, which can be caused by dental trauma or decay. The pulp, which is located inside the root canals, contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. A tooth generally has between one and four root canals. A root canal procedure may be performed on a single root canal or multiple root canals within a tooth.

Cracked Tooth

Symptoms of a cracked tooth are varied and may include pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot and cold food and drink, pressure sensitivity or a combination of these. Because the pain often comes and goes, it can be very difficult to recognize what is causing the problem.

Pulp Treatment (aka Pulpotomy/Pulpectomy/Baby Root Canals)

Tooth Pain Emergency

The blood vessels, nerves, and tissue that keep a tooth healthy and alive are located in the tooth’s pulp, which is protected by the outer enamel and tooth structure. Sometimes the pulp can become infected. The infected pulp can be removed with a pulpotomy. A medicated dressing is then placed in the tooth chamber to prevent further infection and to promote the healing of the remaining pulp. The chamber is then sealed. Because this procedure is often performed on deciduous (baby) teeth, it is sometimes referred to as a baby root canal.

Dental Trauma

Surgical Orthodontics
Traumatic injuries can result in the need for dental treatment. Fractured, cracked, or displaced teeth are common results of dental trauma. Any dental trauma requires prompt medical evaluation and treatment. Treatments may include a splint, medication, a root canal, or other procedures. Once treated, your tooth will be monitored to ensure it is healing as expected and so that any injuries or infections can be quickly resolved.

Endodontic Retreatment

Occasionally a tooth that was treated months or years ago may develop new problems. In some cases a tooth that has received endodontic treatment fails to heal or continues to have pain. You may have another chance to save the tooth with a second endodontic procedure.
