We are specialist members of the American Association of Endodontists. We look forward to being of service to you. Our expert team, led by respected endodontic specialists Dr. Mark Jensen, Dr. Susan Penniston, Dr. Bradford Pugh, Dr. Bernard Hofmann and Dr. Matthew Del Mastro, includes an experienced endodontic staff.
We work closely with your general dentist who has entrusted us with your care. Before providing treatment we take the time to explain your options and answer any questions you may have. We feel this will lead to a trusting relationship and, for many people, relieve some of the stress about seeing an endodontist.
Endodontic therapy, also referred to as “a root canal” is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth, preventing extraction and the need for dental implants or bridges. For more information on root canal treatment at our office, please visit our root canal page.
Endodontic (root canal) surgery can be used to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth. Damaged root surfaces or the surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection. For more information on root canal surgery at our office, please visit our root canal surgery page.
