Endodontics

When a canal is too narrow for instruments to be used during non-surgical root canal therapy, endodontic surgery may be needed to reach the ends of the roots and help save your tooth, particularly if the bony areas around the end of your tooth is inflamed or infected.

A small incision is made in the gum to expose the underlying bone so that the diseased tissue can be removed. A filing may be placed in the root at the end of the canal as well as a few stitches to help the tissue heal properly. Over time, your bone will heal around the end of the root. This is all done under local anesthesia utilizing a sophisticated microscope and special instruments. We recommend you have someone to drive you home after this procedure.

Our Happy Patients

"My husband had to have a root canal for a tooth that had been hurting for more than two years. Dr. Vij and his staff were outstanding. The treatment was effective and Dr. Vij was happy to explain all procedures to him. He has been searching for years for a family dentist and now we have found one. We recommend Dr. Vij to everyone looking for a friendly, professional, and effective dentist."

"I developed a small fear of Dentists mainly due to bad experiences when I was a child. I avoided visiting the dentist for more than 8 years. After constant nagging from my girlfriend I decided it was time for a clean up and boy did I go to the right place. From the start, I was given exceptional service from Dr. Vij and his wonderful staff. I have been to his practice a few times now and I have nothing to say but great things. Dr. Vij showed me the before and after pictures of my gums and they look GREAT!
I definitely recommend this practice to anyone, especially those who have any Dental phobias!
Pros:
Dentist: Dr. Vij Does an excellent job explaining every procedure. Created a great game plan to get my gums back to health!
Procedures: No pain no irritations.
Great Staff - Casey does a great job breaking down the prices for procedures (what insurance covers etc. )
Cons:
None! Just wish I didn't wait 8 years to go to visit a Dentist again haha."
