Our in-house endodontist, Dr. Alexander, specializes in Root Canal Therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, which is the removal of an infection inside of a tooth. A root canal can save a tooth that has been severely infected or decayed. Some reasons your dentist may recommend root canal therapy include a cracked tooth, or a deep cavity. During the procedure, Dr. Alexander uses a special endodontic microscope and innovative digital x-ray technology to remove any infected or inflamed pulp with immense precision. He carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the canals, and then thoroughly examines, fills and seals the space to prepare it for restorative treatment. Often referred to as a CAT-Scan, our Cone Beam CT (CBCT) Scanner produces a digital 3D view of the teeth which allows him to easily find extra canals or tooth fractures.


A root canal retreatment may be recommended by your dentist for several reasons and may even cause pain in that area. Some reasons that a previously treated root may need to be treated again include: improper healing, new decay or infection, narrow or curved canals that were not treated during the initial treatment, undetected complications, a tooth fracture, or delayed crown placement. During this procedure, Dr. Alexander reopens the tooth to disassemble the materials that were initially used to fill the root canals. He then thoroughly cleans the root canals and examines them using a special endodontic microscope. Only after careful examination will he fill and seal the canals to prepare them for their restorative treatment.
