A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent or delay the need for dental implants or bridges.
With the appropriate care, your teeth that have had endodontic treatment will be functional for years to come. Yet, a tooth that has received treatment may fail to heal or pain may continue to exist. Sometimes, the pain may occur months or years after treatment. If so, Endodontic Retreatment may be needed.
While most root canal procedures are performed for adults, our office is comfortable and capable of treating children. It is very important to maintain our teeth for as long as possible, regardless of age. This is all the more critical for a developing child, so we are prepared and eager to care for children, comfortably and effectively.
Injuries to the mouth can cause teeth to be loosened or dislodged from their sockets. It is important to seek care immediately. Your endodontist or general dentist may reposition and stabilize your tooth. If root canal treatment is deemed necessary, it must be started within 1-2 weeks of the injury.
Thank you, Dr. Steinkruger and Assistant Jennifer. First of all, you accepted me in to your office on a Friday when my appointment was canceled at one of your other offices. Jennifer went above and beyond to explain to me what was going on and truly made me feel better, Dr. Steinkruger went out of his way to help me and to explain every step. Both of them were very patient, made sure I wasn't in pain and just made me fill like they had my well being at heart. Thank you - I haven't had that very much. I recommend this office and staff to everyone. Also on, Saturday a young lady called me just to check on me. Thank you.
I just wanted to take this time to say, thank you to your staff. I will forever tell all of my friends and coworkers about the care I received at your West Ashley office. Thank you.
Dr. Steinkruger and Jennifer, Thank you for making my procedure comfortable - pleasant experience and totally professional. Love your office and all friendly and helpful staff. Thank you again.
I was a nervous wreck before my first-ever root canal procedure. I didn’t know what to expect after hearing both good and bad stories from my friends. The assistants and doctor at Charleston Endodontics made everything go so smoothly, and painlessly! I am amazed at how simple it was.
Thank you so much for the very pleasant visit to your office. Everyone was very helpful and I had no problems following the root canal procedure. I expressed my personal comments to my dentist of the very good job done by you and your staff.
Needless to say, I was rather apprehensive when the root canal was suggested by my dentist, but the doctor and his assistants at Charleston Endodontics made the whole procedure painless. They made me quite relaxed. I would certainly return, if needed, and will definitely let others know of their great service.
It was easier than having a filling!
