Working Together to Save Smiles

Dr. Welk works closely with your general dentist to ensure the best possible solution to restoring your damaged tooth to normal function and esthetics.

It is important that you know all of the options. Sometimes the best option is a root canal procedure followed by a filling and/or crown. Sometimes extraction of a tooth and consideration of the area for a dental implant is needed. At Cascade Endodontics, we will take time to explain to you the options best for you.

Root Canal Therapy

When a tooth is infected or at risk of infection, root canal therapy can often save the tooth. The procedure involves removing the dental pulp and replacing it with a filler material that preserves the tooth and prevents infection. Root canal therapy can be done proactively to prevent infection or retroactively to treat a tooth infection.

Endodontic Retreatment

After a root canal procedure has been performed on a tooth, a tooth may still become reinfected if the root canal was not complete. This calls for endodontic retreatment, which is essentially a repeat root canal. We use an endodontic microscope to ensure that we remove all of the dental pulp and completely fill every space within the root canal to prevent the need for retreatment.

When underdeveloped or damaged root tissue allows bacteria to enter the root canal it can result in an infection. An apicoectomy removes the tip of the tooth root, cleans out the infected tissue, and places a cap on the end of the root to seal it off from further infection.

Cracked Teeth

A crack in a tooth can allow bacteria to invade the dental pulp and cause an infection. A cracked tooth should be filled or covered with a crown to prevent infection. In some cases root canal therapy will be performed before the crown is placed.

Traumatic Injuries

An injury to the mouth can knock a tooth loose or out of place. It can also cause internal problems with a tooth that are unable to be seen right away. Prompt treatment after an injury improves the chances of saving the tooth.

A pulpotomy is an endodontic procedure that is most often performed on deciduous (baby) teeth. This treatment is needed when deep tooth decay reaches the pulp inside of a tooth, causing an infection called pulpitis.
