WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?
Root canal treatment is needed when the pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth) becomes inflamed or infected as a result of injury, deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a cracked or chipped tooth.
When performing a root canal, an endodontist removes inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the canal (a channel inside the root), and fills and seals the space.
After performing the procedure, the endodontist returns the patient to a general dentist to have a crown placed or other restorative work performed. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.

We use innovative tools that improve the root canal procedure.
The Root Canal Specialists are equipped with tools that have improved the root canal procedure, making it safer, simpler, and more efficient. As founder of Edge Endo, Dr. Goodis dedicated his career to improving the root canal procedure. The instruments we use provide an easy and painless treatment for our patients.
Our root canals do not cause pain, they relieve it.
By knowing which anesthetics and how much to use, we can achieve complete numbing before we start the root canal. With constant communication and performing painless tests, we can know when you are numb. In addition, by using our advanced instruments and procedures, we can complete your root canal quickly and painlessly.
We strive to make the process simple and painless for our patients. From the leading edge instruments we use to the way we conduct X-rays, we focus on our patients care during the root canal procedure. We use high resolution 3D images for precise diagnostics. The results from our 3D images provide us with clear and sharp X-rays that are often difficult to diagnose. The patient is safe due to the X-ray scanning only the area of interest thus administering the lowest radiation dosage possible.
