Endodontic Services

When the soft inner center of the teeth called the pulp becomes damaged, diseased or infected, a special type of dentist is required to treat the area. This is called an Endodontist, a doctor who has received additional training in order to diagnose and treat endodontic conditions beneath the gum line. Naples' endodontist Dr. Carrigan can help restore your mouth and your smile using streamlined, strategic techniques that minimize pain and expedite recovery.

What is endodontic dentistry?

Endodontics concerns the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases within the nerves, root and lymphatic tissue of the dental pulp, as well as correction of injuries.

Root canal therapy is usually required when damage has spread to the pulp. A root canal can help to disinfect the region and calm inflammation. An endodontist must receive specialized training in this field, and build an intuitive understanding of how to treat and heal tooth pain that stems from the dental pulp.
