Who Needs Endodontics?

Endodontics treatments - or root canals - save your teeth by treating deep decay, trauma (cracked or broken teeth), dental abscesses, tooth discoloration, and severe toothaches. Anyone with painful, broken, or discolored teeth might benefit from an endodontics consultation with Dr. Velez. We are excited to provide the most advanced, least invasive GentleWave Procedure to save your teeth.

Before Your Root Canal Appointment

Dr. Velez and the Advanced Endodontics staff understand that root canals can be intimidating and are here to provide a stress-free treatment. To help ensure a smooth experience, Dr. Velez and his staff will discuss:

  • Medical history: We need to know your complete medical history, including the medications you take and medical conditions you have.
  • Symptoms: It is important to know about tooth pain, sensitivity, swelling, and drainage. This information can help Dr. Velez better understand your situation and provide appropriate, effective  treatment.
  • Preparation instructions: We will provide instructions that include guidelines for eating and drinking before the appointment or taking prescribed medications as directed.
  • Anxiety or concerns: If you have anxiety or concerns about the procedure, don't hesitate to tell us. We have a variety of strategies to help you feel more comfortable during the appointment.
  • Duration and follow-up: We will explain the expected duration of the appointment and follow-up care. Knowing what to expect can help you plan your schedule and ensure proper post-treatment care.
  • Aftercare: Your endodontic surgeon will discuss post-treatment care instructions, including restrictions on eating or activities, and medications prescribed for pain or infection prevention.
