I wish to thank you for your professional services, your generosity and goodwill to have offered root canal treatment gratuitously. There was very little pain thereafter. I appreciated the call from your office to see how I was doing. I will continue to recommend you to anyone in need of endodontic treatment.

I wanted to thank you for your utmost care and attention given to me from the moment I arrived in your office. Your personality and caring manner means so much as did your two assistants Cecilia and Fabiola. Judi was quick to get me in right away so that I could get the care that was needed. You saw the broken tooth and took care of it immediately. This all meant a great deal to me and I just wanted to let you know that I think you and your staff are WONDERFUL ! If I ever need a root canal again I would definitely come back here. Thank you again for your loving care. You are a great dentist and have a great staff.

Sincerely,

 

Kathleen

I would highly recommend Dr. Marcos and the facilities of Dr. Dreyer to anyone needing endodontic care.  You may rest assured that the entire staff is highly skilled professionals and that they take great pride in their work.
 
Thank you, Dr. Marcos

Thank you for doing my root canal yesterday.  It was great to sleep through the night for the first time in three weeks and awake to no pain!  You and the staff showed professionalism, compassion, and humor.  Though I hope to not need oral surgery for a while, I will look to your office for my future needs.

Why go to a dentist that only does root canals?

Your general dentist may in fact do a lot of root canals in his/her office. You may have been referred here for consultation if the diagnosis is complicated or when treatment is more difficult than normal. Dr. Dreyer is equipped with a number of diagnostic aides which help him determine exactly what is causing your symptoms. He will diagnose your problem and will take the time to make sure you understand the treatment options available to you. He will do his best to answer all your questions prior to starting treatment.

What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a segment of Dentistry that deals with diseases of the dental pulp and its supporting structures. While Dr. Dreyer is not an endodontic specialist, he has limited his practice to endodontics, and has extensive experience in diagnosing and treating the diseases of the dental pulp. He employs all the high tech equipment typical of the progressive endodontic specialist, including the surgical operating microscope.

In order to understand Endodontic treatment, it helps to know something about the anatomy of a tooth. Teeth have several layers. The outside layer of the tooth is composed of a hard layer called Enamel. Enamel is supported by an inner layer called Dentin, which has at its center a soft tissue known as the Pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that are responsible for forming the surrounding Dentin and Enamel during tooth development. The pulp receives its nourishment supply from vessels which enter the end of the root. Although the pulp is important during development of the tooth, it is not necessary for function of the tooth. The tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it even after the pulp is removed.

Why would I need Endodontic treatment?

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. The most common reasons for inflammation or infection are deep cavities (caries),repeated dental procedures, cracks or chips. Trauma can also cause inflammation and often shows up as discoloration of the tooth. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

Signs and Symptoms

Indications for treatment include prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling or tenderness of the tooth or adjacent gums. Sometimes there are no symptoms.

How Can Endodontic Treatment help me?

The dentist removes the inflammed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the canal system and then seals the prepared space. Most treatment is now performed in a single appointment ranging from 60-120 minutes (depending on the number of canals and complexity of the case). Once treatment is completed, you may be instructed to return to your restorative dentist for permanent reconstruction. The restoration of the tooth is an important part of treatment because it seals the cleaned canals from the oral environment, protects the tooth and restores it to function.

Will I feel pain during or after the procedure?

Toothache pain is the main reason for patients seeking treatment. Fortunately, modern anesthetics can make the procedure pain free in most cases. Seeking treatment early makes the procedure more comfortable, so don't wait. When caught early, treatment should feel no different than having a regular filling. For the first few days after treatment, there may be some sensitivity to biting pressure, especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. Sometimes over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications (like Advil) are recommended for a day or two. Dr. Dreyer can prescribe other medications but they are rarely required.
