Exceptional Endodontic Care
We are endodontic experts providing a wide range of treatments in Cerritos, CA
What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is primarily concerned with the deepest tissues in and around teeth, such as the dental pulp, teeth roots, nerves, lymphatic tissues, and other structures.
When these tissues are affected by decay, disease, or damage from injuries, they can result in tooth loss, and cause damage to other parts of the mouth. Serious decay, infections, cancers, and other issues can also endanger your overall health. The endodontic experts at Endodontic Care in Cerritos, CA use advanced x-ray technology to diagnose these issues and the latest tools to treat deep-set decay and other conditions. Endodontists pride themselves as “specialists in saving teeth,” and can help restore teeth that have been heavily damaged.
Endodontists receive three years of specialized training after dental school in order to diagnose and treat issues affecting the underlying tissues supporting your teeth. This additional training and experience, as well as advanced tools, help endodontists diagnose conditions accurately and treat them in the best possible way. If you are experiencing tooth pain, your teeth are loose or weak, or you suspect deep structures in and around your teeth have been damaged, talk to your dentist about endodontic interventions. With a referral from your dentists, our endodontists in Cerritos, CA can diagnose the condition affecting your teeth and help restore your oral health.
Our Endodontic Services
Just as bacteria and decay can damage your teeth, they can also damage the tissues supporting your teeth, like your teeth roots and teeth pulp. While a dentist can remove decay attacking your teeth, it takes a specialist to stop decay that has reached into deeper areas.
Our endodontists not only use specialized experience and education, but also specialized tools to get a full picture of the damage and find the best way to heal it. We use dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology to see deep underneath the tooth and build a 3-dimensional model of the area. We also use precise tools to clean the affected area completely and restore the health and stability of your tooth.

We Use Advanced Technology to Provide the Best Care
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an advanced x-ray imaging technique that gives our endodontists a clear and detailed view of the innermost structures supporting your teeth.
This allows us to detect signs of decay, disease, and injury earlier, and see the affected areas completely. CBCT creates a 3-dimensional view of your mouth, allowing us to see the problem from multiple angles, and ensuring that we miss nothing. This not only allows us to intervene sooner, but also get the most accurate diagnosis and design the best treatment options and strategies.
