An endodontist is a dentist who has attended several years of higher training post-dental school to learn specialized care of the root systems of the teeth. Endodontists save many teeth that would otherwise face extraction by clearing infection out of the roots and sealing the tooth to prevent further damage. This procedure is known as “Root Canal Therapy”.

Comfortable, Safe Root Canal Treatment in Olympia WA

The first question you probably want to ask us is “Does root canal therapy hurt?” We are pleased to report to you that thanks to advancements in technology, anesthesia and technique, root canal therapy is a much more comfortable procedure than in the past, and you should feel no pain during the process. We are able to keep the affected tooth numb throughout the procedure and for several hours after. Thus, if you came in here with a toothache, you will be relieved to find it gone when you leave. Additional comfort options, such as listening to music or a favorite podcast with headphones, can be suggested by our staff prior to your visit to further ensure your comfort while you are here.

Technology on Your Side

The field of endodontics has been one of the biggest beneficiaries of technological advancements over recent years among the dental specialties. The development of better technologies and progressive techniques has changed the patient experience and outcomes of endodontic therapy for the better forever. At Northwest Endodontic Specialists, we have been the leader in incorporating these technological advances into our practice. This is the only way we can ensure the best care for our patients.
