Oral Health, Endodontics & Overall Health

Oral health and overall health are closely connected. Endodontic care plays a key role in maintaining good oral health by eliminating infection and pain and preserving natural teeth.

One of the great responsibilities of all dentists is to reassure patients who are concerned about the safety of endodontic treatment. We recommend that you visit the website for the American Association of Endodontists to find comprehensive information about the safety and efficacy of root canal treatment and other endodontic procedures.

If you are researching online, please take care to use only reputable and reliable sources. While good information is available from the AAE and other professional organizations, there are a number of websites that contain incorrect information, often based on poorly researched findings from the early 1920s or other sources. Decades of research have proven that root canal treatment and other endodontic procedures are safe and effective in improving and helping you maintain good oral health.
