Endodontic Treatment At John M. Purdy, DDS

What Is Endodontic Treatment?

Endodontic treatment (also called endodontic therapy or root canal therapy) is done to remove infected pulp from a tooth to prevent further tooth decay. It often means the difference between a patient being able to keep their tooth and needing to have it extracted.

Protecting Your Overall Health

Endodontic treatment focuses on saving your teeth. Dr. Purdy always recommends that, if possible, we save a patient’s tooth rather than extracting it and replacing it with an implant. Not only are root canals less costly than implants, but root canals do not have the risk of bone loss that can occur with a dental implant.

Dr. Purdy Has The Experience To Save Your Tooth

Dr. Purdy specializes in root canals and all other root canal related therapies. This allows him to perfect the techniques used in saving your teeth and increases the success rate of such treatments. For more information on endodontic treatment, please see root canal therapy.
