What we Do

What's the difference between a dentist and an Endodontist? 

While all endodontists are dentists, less than 3% of dentists are endodontists. Endodontists are specialists because they’ve completed an additional two or more years of training beyond dental school. The additional training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain and performing root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the interior of the tooth. In many cases, a diseased tooth can be saved with endodontic treatment.

Root Canals

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures with well over 14 million performed every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for more costly dental implants or bridges.

Galsterer Endodontics offers Nitrous Oxide Sedation and mild oral sedation for those who suffer from extreme dental anxiety. Nitrous Oxide sedation is upon request and by reservation only. Please inform our staff that you would prefer this prior to your appointment.

Apicoectomy (Surgery)

Generally, a root canal is all that is needed to save teeth with injured pulp from extraction. Occasionally, this non-surgical procedure will not be sufficient to heal the tooth and your endodontist will recommend surgery. Endodontic surgery can be used to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth.

Traumatic Injuries

Injuries to the mouth can cause teeth to be pushed back into their sockets. Your endodontist or general dentist may reposition and stabilize your tooth. Root canal treatment is usually started within a few weeks of the injury.
