Referred to Our Endodontist
Most patients come to our office after their family dentist refers them based on their evaluation. Our endodontist, Dr. George Biron, will complete an evaluation to check for signs of an infection, which can be the cause of the pain. The evaluation also includes x-rays of your teeth and a vitality test of your teeth.
After the evaluation, If endodontic therapy is indicated Dr. Biron will arrange to perform the root canal treatment and appointment for the root canal therapy. For your convenience, local anesthesia is used during the surgical endodontic therapy.
