Endodontics is a dental specialty that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and injuries that affect the dental pulp and surrounding tissues. Our endodontists have received advanced training in treating tooth pain, performing root canal procedures, and more. If you have been experiencing tooth pain, contact Indian Trail Dental Studio today to speak with a member from our care team.

What Is Endodontics?

Our endodontists  help patients with a range of dental issues, including treating cracked teeth, dental abscesses, and traumatic dental injuries. We are also experts in treating dental pain and diseases that affect the dental pulp, like pulpitis and irreversible pulpitis. By performing root canal procedures, we help save severely damaged or decayed teeth, preventing the need for extraction and preserving each patient’s natural smile.

Cracked Teeth

Cracked teeth can occur due to a variety of reasons like teeth grinding, trauma, or large fillings, and can cause pain, sensitivity, and further damage. Endodontic treatments like  root canals or tooth extractions may be necessary depending on the severity of the crack.

Dental Abscesses

Dental abscesses occur when there is a buildup of pus in the tooth, usually due to severe tooth decay or gum disease. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and fever, and if left untreated, can lead to further infection and complications. 

Traumatic Dental Injuries

Traumatic dental injuries occur when teeth are broken, cracked, or knocked out due to physical impact, like sports injuries, falls, or car accidents. 

Dental Pain 

Dental pain is a common symptom of several dental problems, ranging from minor toothaches to more serious issues like an abscess or cracked tooth.

Root Canals 

Root canals are a common endodontic procedure used to treat dental conditions that affect the tooth’s pulp, like decay or infection. The procedure involves removing the damaged or infected pulp, cleaning the root canal system, and sealing the tooth to prevent further damage.

We believe in personalized care and start every appointment with a thorough consultation. During this visit, our endodontist will review your dental history, discuss your symptoms, and perform a comprehensive examination to determine the most effective treatment plan for you.

Treatment Plan

Based on your unique dental needs, our endodontist will provide you with a detailed treatment plan that outlines the recommended procedure, expected timeline, and cost. We believe in transparency and will answer any questions you might have to ensure you feel comfortable with your treatment plan.


Once you’ve agreed on the treatment plan and feel ready to move forward, we’ll begin the procedure in our comfortable and modern treatment room. Our endodontist will use the latest techniques, tools, and anesthesia to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the procedure and that the treatment is as gentle as possible.


After the treatment, we’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help manage any pain or discomfort you might experience. We encourage our patients to rest for at least 24 hours following the procedure, but we’re always available to answer any questions or concerns you might have.


Our care doesn’t end once the procedure is complete. We’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure everything is healing properly, review the aftercare protocol, and provide guidance on how to maintain optimal dental health.

Frequently Asked Questions

Root canal procedures are not typically painful, and patients often report improvement in their level of discomfort after the treatment is completed. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, which ensures a comfortable experience. 

While root canal treatment has a high success rate, a small percentage of cases may need to be re-treated due to additional infection, incomplete treatment, or other factors. Our team will work with you to address any issues that arise during your recovery period.

Good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing regularly, can help prevent the need for root canal therapy. Additionally, routine dental check-ups and cleanings can help identify and treat dental issues before they become more severe.

In some cases, our team may recommend an alternative treatment, such as tooth extraction or placement of a dental crown. Your endodontist will discuss all treatment options with you and help you make an informed decision based on your individual needs.

Depending on the severity and complexity of the case, a root canal procedure can take between one and three hours. Our team will provide you with a detailed estimate of the expected timeline during your consultation.
