Advanced Endodontic Treatment

We get to the root of the problem.


Endodontics refers to the treatment of the root canal of a tooth. The root canal is the central portion of the root of a tooth, where the nerves and blood vessels are present. The soft tissue in the middle of the tooth is called the pulp. There can be many reasons why a dog or cat would need a root canal. The most common reason is when a tooth breaks and exposes the pulp. Cavities are very rare in cats and dogs and so are unlikely to be the culprits causing the need for root canal therapy.

Evaluation Consultation

If your pet has been diagnosed as needing root canal therapy, we will schedule an initial evaluation consultation and talk with you about the pros and cons of the different treatment options that may be available. Root canal treatment is a non-invasive procedure that allows dogs and cats to continue using the problem tooth with minimal chance of future pain and infection. We will walk you through the specific recommendations for your pet after we have done an evaluation and reviewed previous records.
