Endodontics deals with the roots of the teeth. The most common endodontic therapy is a root canal, which involves removing infected pulp and then filling the tooth. Dental pulp is the soft tissue, nerves and blood vessels inside the tooth. When the pulp becomes infected, root canal therapy can save the tooth; without a root canal, the infection will spread and eventually the tooth will fall out, requiring more costly dental implants or bridges to repair your bite. After a root canal, the tooth is dead because the nerve tissue and infection have been removed, and the pain is gone. A filling or crown may be added to protect the tooth.

Dr. Sal is dedicated to providing exceptional endodontic and root canal therapy, offering the latest in dental technology and highly experienced and qualified doctors to provide you with a comfortable and positive experience.


Are you suffering from dental pain after having endodontic treatment, root canal, month or even years later? With regular care, teeth that have gone through endodontic treatment may last as long as natural teeth. With a 95 percent success rate, a root canal may seem like a sure bet.

Unfortunately, this is not the case for everyone. In some cases, a tooth that received endodontic treatment may heal improperly causing continued pain. Believe it or not, pain may continue to occur months even years after endodontic treatment.

Luckily, an endodontic retreatment may be the best solution. An endodontic retreatment can provide the relief and peace of mind that you need.


If you are looking to get a complex dental procedure, such as dental implant, more than likely you will encounter a dental cone-beam CT scan or CBCT. The device will be used to provide your dental professional with the needed information before any procedures.

Even though most people have concerns about radiation from an x-ray apparatus, radiation doses from a CBCT are lower than traditional x-ray equipment. Also, dental CBCT are standard of care for most implant related procedures.
