Frequently Asked Questions

Who is an Endodontist?

An Endodontist is a dentist who has undergone a minimum of 2 years of extra postgraduate training to specifically treat Root Canal related cases. This Specialist training allows an Endodontist to:

  1. Manage and cure diseases of the dental pulp and supporting structure.
  2. Diagnose facial pain and related problems.

Your general dentist sometimes refers patients for consultation when the diagnosis is complicated or when treatment is more difficult than normal. Aside from providing treatment, Dr. Salehipour educates his patients to understand why they require that treatment. Dr. Salehipour also discusses what treatment involves and what they can do to ensure the best possible outcome. He believes that a properly informed patient has the best chance of achieving the optimal result.

What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a specialty of Dentistry that deals with diseases of the dental pulp and its supporting structures.

Although General Dentists can perform Endodontic treatments, patients are often referred to an Endo specialist when their case is complicated or more difficult than ordinary one.

The tooth pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that are responsible for forming the surrounding Dentin and Enamel during tooth development. The pulp receives its nourishment supply from vessels which enter the end of the root. Although the pulp is important during development of the tooth, it is not necessary for function of the tooth. The tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it even after the pulp is removed.

Why would I need an Endodontic Treatment?

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the tooth pulp becomes infected. The most common reasons for inflammation or infection are deep cavities (caries), repeated dental procedures, cracks or chips tooth structure. Trauma can also cause inflammation and often shows up as discoloration of the tooth. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

Signs and Symptoms for necessity of Treatment:

Indications for treatment includes prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling or tenderness of the tooth or adjacent gums. Sometimes there are no symptoms. If the infection passes a certain level, shocking pain and abscess also becomes inevitable.

How can an Endodontic treatment help me?

By Endo Treatment the inflamed or infected pulp is removed, and the tooth canal is cleaned. Then Endodontist shapes the canal system and then seals the prepared space. Most treatment is now performed in a single appointment ranging from 60-90 minutes (depending on the number of canals). Once treatment is completed, you may be instructed to return to your dentist for permanent restoration. The restoration of the tooth is an important part of treatment because it seals the cleaned canals from the oral environment, protects the tooth and restores it to function.

Am I going to feel pain during or after treatment?

Toothache is the main reason for patients seeking treatment. Fortunately, anesthetics can make the procedure pain free in most cases. Seeking treatment early makes the procedure more comfortable because the infection is in smaller area and freezing can be very effective, so don’t wait. When caught early, treatment should feel no different than a regular filling. Once the infection passes a certain level the tooth and area around it becomes very painful and that causes the anesthetics not to function well. This results in feeling more pain during the treatment. For the first few days after treatment, there may be some sensitivity to biting pressure, especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. Sometimes over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications (like Advil) are recommended for a day or two. We can prescribe other medications, but they are rarely required.
