Alleviate Your Pain with Endodontics

When you have a toothache, you try everything to stop the pain, from icing your cheek to taking over-the-counter painkillers. While these techniques provide temporary relief, they do little to solve tooth infection or damage.

Fortunately, endodontic care from an experienced dentist can end the pain for good.

If you need endodontics, visit our clinic for thorough dental care in a comfortable environment. We serve patients suffering tooth pain from Clifton, Montrose, Glenwood Springs, Rifle, Delta, Palisade Fruita, Delta, Clifton, Grand Junction, and the surrounding areas.

What Does Endodontics Mean?

Endodontics focuses on your tooth’s pulp, or the live, connective tissue in your tooth’s center. It contains cells that produce dentin, a protective layer that keeps the pulp safe.

An endodontist diagnoses, prevents, and treats any injuries, diseases, or infections in your pulp or root tissues.

For example, if your pulp becomes infected, you may need root canal therapy. During this procedure, your endodontist will remove damaged or diseased parts of your pulp, then fill in the gaps left behind. Next, he or she will place a crown over the tooth to prevent future damage, protect the tooth, and restore its look and function.

How Can JP Dental and Implant Center Help?

When you come to our clinic, Dr. Poovey and Dr. Gorman can perform root canal therapy that preserves your teeth. This means he can eliminate pain from an infected tooth without removing the tooth entirely. Through endodontic care, he’ll also stop infection from moving to other teeth.

When you visit our office, our staff will do their best to put you at ease and answer any questions you may have about the procedure or any other services we provide.
