What is Endodontics?

At Palm Beach Periodontics, we deal with many different types of issues relating to our patient’s oral health. Endodontics is the branch of dentistry concerning dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of a tooth. Endodontic treatment and procedures are typically known as “root canal treatment” and relate to the soft tissue/pulp of the tooth. Our practice is trained in the area of endodontics, and we help provide options to save our patient’s natural teeth.

How Is Endodontics Different Than Regular Dentistry?

To become an endodontist, Our Periodontists completed two or more years of advanced endodontic training after dental school.

Patient Reviews

Palm Beach Periodontics is absolutely amazing! I would give 10 stars if possible. My daughter had an emergency and needed to see a periodontist immediately, I called the office around 11:30 and they got her in at 1:30 the same day! The ladies in the office were all absolutely amazing and accommodating.
