Root Canal Safety

The relationship of our teeth and mouth to overall good health is indisputable. Endodontics plays a critical role in maintaining good oral health by eliminating infection and pain, and preserving our natural dentition.

A key responsibility of any dentist is to reassure patients who are concerned about the safety of endodontic treatment that their overall well-being is a top priority. The American Association of Endodontists website (www.aae.org) is the best place to obtain comprehensive information on the safety and efficacy of endodontics and root canal treatment.

Over 15 million root canals are performed a year. This provides patients a highly predictable and successful option to save their tooth.
