ROOT CANAL TREATMENT STEP BY STEP

Need a root canal? Don't be anxious. This informative video will walk you step-by-step through the procedure and explain how our endodontists, the root canal specialists, can save your teeth.


Our Endodontists (Root Canal Specialists)

Dr. Cha and Dr. Jiang are Endodontists - "Specialists in Saving Teeth through Root Canal Treatment". While all endodontists are dentists, less than 3% of dentists are endodontists. Just like a doctor in any other field, endodontists are specialists because they’ve limited their practice to endodontics after completed an additional two or more years of training beyond dental school. Our endodontists work very closely with your referring general dentist who will place the final restoration after the root canal treatment is completed. Both of our endodontists are clinical faculty members at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine and certified by the Americal Board of Endodontics. Their advanced training focuses on diagnosing dental pain and performing root canal treatment based on scientific knowledge using the latest technology. In vast majority of cases, a diseased tooth can be saved with endodontic treatment with high degree of sucess. More than 40 million teeth are extracted in the U.S. every year and many of these extractions are unnecessary. Nothing can truly replace your natural teeth.

3D Micro Root Canal Technology
Using CBCT Imaging and Microscope

Using 3D CBCT Imaging and Dental Operating Microscope (DOM), our endodontists provide root canal treatment with increased safety and accuracy which results in a predictable outcome.

3D Cone Beam radiograph allows viewing the root canal space and the anatomy of the jaw bone in 3D, which helps endodontists to make more accurate diagnostic decision, establish improved treatment planning
and enhance their performance during the treatment procedures. Learn More

    Carol

    The entire root canal took a little over an hour - and that's it. A few hours of rest and time for the anesthetic to wear off, and now there's hardly any discomfort at all. I am truly amazed.

    Geoff
