SmileCare El Cajon II
El Cajon Endodontists

If you have a toothache, call SmileCare at 2990 Jamacha Road, El Cajon, CA 92019. Our endodontist is ready to help.

Tooth pain is often a sign of infection, and a root canal or another endodontic procedure may be needed to provide relief. Endodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). SmileCare endodontists in El Cajon have completed an additional two to three years of training. We are experts at diagnosing and treating problems associated with the tooth pulp, which is the soft tissue located inside the root canal.

What Are Endodontic Treatments?

There are many reasons why a tooth may develop an infection including tooth decay, cracks, chips and trauma. Our endodontists in El Cajon, CA 92019 perform simple and complex endodontic treatment procedures to relieve pain and restore teeth, including:

  • Root canal therapy
  • Root canal retreatment
  • Apicoectomy
  • Apexification
  • Apexogenesis
  • Bone grafting
  • Perforation repair

When You Need Endodontic Surgery

There are some symptoms that indicate endodontic surgery may be required. For example, if the existing root canal is narrowed or blocked by calcium deposits or debris, surgery may be necessary. Endodontic surgery may be necessary in the following situations:

  • Severe pain
  • Blocked root tips
  • Cracked roots
  • Perforated root tips
  • Persistent cysts
  • Removal of debris from previous root canal therapy that might damage the root tips if not removed
  • Unusually formed molars, incisors and first premolars having complex or tiny canal divisions
