Endodontists specialize in treating the soft tissues within teeth that can become infected and cause intense pain.

We remove the infected tissue, eliminating pain at the source, and seal the tooth to preserve it.

Our specialized tools also allow us to repair injured teeth, including fine fractures conventional equipment can miss.

Tired of being in pain?

Need endodontic care?

We’re happy to help you!

At New Wave Endodontics we’re dedicated to providing you with the highest quality root canal therapy and dental surgery by using state-of-the-art technology. We use an advanced Global® microscope on every procedure to illuminate microscopic differences in tooth anatomy. In addition, our 3D-CBCT scanner produces detailed three-dimensional images of tooth structure, revealing fractures and unique tooth anatomy that conventional X-rays can miss.

GentleWave treatments use fluid dynamics and acoustic energy to clean canals and microscopic places within the tooth where bacteria can hide. This allows us to save teeth, even after previously failed root canals.

Featured Technology: 3-D CBCT

Our 3-D CBCT scanner (shown here) produces detailed three-dimensional images of tooth structure, revealing fractures and unique tooth anatomy that conventional X-rays can miss.

CBCT, or  Cone Beam Computed Tomography,  captures a series of X-ray images in just a few seconds as the machine rotates around a person’s head. Because the process is fast and uses a focused cone of X-rays, it exposes patients to several hundred times lower doses of X-rays as ordinary medical CT-scans. And they far more detailed results than ordinary, two-dimensional X-rays, allowing endodontists to view teeth at different depths and from multiple angles while taking detailed measurements. CBCT can reveal fractures or unusual root canal structures that are hidden by other parts of a tooth on two-dimensional X-rays.

As of 2017, only 55% of endodontist offices used 3-D CBCT . Those like New Wave Endodontics who do use the technology typically find they are able to make better diagnoses, often resulting in fewer or more successful treatments.

What to Expect

Our patients come to us for a variety of reasons. Whether you were referred to us by a doctor or came in because of a dental emergency, we will help relieve the pain and walk you through the procedure of your upcoming treatment.

For all patients that walk into our practice, we make sure to:

  1. Diagnose your tooth pain
  2. Discuss with you your best treatment plan
  3. Provide you with excellent endodontic care
  4. Direct you to further treatment, if necessary

We schedule appointments so that, in most cases, issues can be diagnosed and treated on the same day.
