Put an End to Uncomfortable Mouth Pain
Endodontic Dentists work hard to make sure that all of your teeth are in good health and do all that they can to save your natural teeth. While the most common procedures performed by endodontic dentists are root canals and various extractions, they specialize in other procedures as well.
Our Reno dentists can diagnose and treat oral and facial pain that may be caused by infection, injury, decay, or a cracked tooth. If you are in pain and need immediate attention our staff will make sure you get the best treatment possible. Our root canal procedures and extractions can help reduce pain and get you back to your normal routine.
Root Canals or Extractions

While these dreaded terms are not popular amongst patients, we promise to make your visit as pain-free as possible. We take pride in performing high-quality dentistry.
What is a Root Canal?
When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected, a root canal procedure may be necessary. The procedure begins with your nerves and pulp being removed. The pulp is tissue that is located within the enamel on your teeth. It is made up of blood vessels, nerves, and tissue. This procedure may sound daunting, but if you don’t treat the tooth right away it can lead to far more serious dental issues. In the case that the tooth cannot be saved by a root canal, an extraction might be necessary. We treat each case on an individual basis and create a treatment plan for your specific needs.
