Boston Magazine Top Dentists 2021
Each year, Boston Magazine gives awards to the top-rated dentists in the Boston area. Boston Magazine sends letters to licensed doctors in the Boston area asking them to send in their nominations for top doctors. Only those licensed to practice in Massachusetts can vote. This way, the winners are top dentists in the eyes of their peers.
In 2021, our doctors were again voted Boston Magazine Top Dentist.
Our practice provides the following endodontic services:
Root Canal Therapy
Endodontists specialize in saving natural teeth and in performing root canals. Endodontic — or root canal — treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected.
Root Canal Retreatment
Occasionally a tooth that has undergone endodontic, root canal therapy fails to heal. If pain or infection recurs despite therapy, the tooth often can be maintained with a second endodontic treatment.
In this procedure, the endodontist opens the gum tissue near the tooth to see the underlying bone and to remove any inflamed or infected tissue. Over a period of months, the bone heals around the end of the root.
Endodontists specialize in saving cracked teeth and will cater treatment to the type, location, and extent of the crack. Once treated, most cracked teeth continue to function as they should, for many years of pain-free biting and chewing.
Internal bleaching is treatment for cases in which teeth are darkened or discolored and the stains do not respond to external whitening treatments. It can only be done on root canal treated teeth.
Timely treatment is particularly important with dislodged or knocked-out teeth in order to prevent root resorption. Endodontists will do all that is possible to save the natural tooth.
