Endodontics

Endodontics  deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp and surrounding supporting tissues. The goal of endodontic treatment is to save natural teeth so that they can continue to be a functioning part of a patient’s dentition. Patients at RSDM receiving comprehensive care from DMD candidates may have endodontic therapy performed in the predoctoral clinics.  Complex cases, and endodontic patients referred from outside RSDM, will receive care from endodontic residents.  Their patients are treated in our new, state-of-the-art postdoctoral endodontic clinic, part of the multi-specialty postdoctoral Dental Specialty Center.  This clinic features a dedicated CBCT scanner, chairside intraoral radiography, state-of-the-art Zeiss operating microscopes and a dedicated surgery/special needs suite.
