Endodontics Cape Coral FL

Gentle Root Canal Care from Your Family Dentist

When Are Root Canals Needed?

Root canals are common endodontic procedures we use to save severely infected, traumatized or damaged teeth. Left untreated, such teeth often require extraction, lead to more complex dental needs and even cause systemic illness. In the past, patients have been fearful of receiving root canals. But modern technology has made root canals far more comfortable and convenient for Cape Coral, FL, patients. As a skilled general dentist, Dr. Mauricio Martinez uses the latest techniques to save damaged teeth and offer gentle, pain-free root canals.

Our Advanced Root Canal Procedures

Dr. Martinez performs minimally invasive, comfortable root canals for anterior (front) and molar teeth, and can often save Cape Coral, FL, patients from having to visit a specialist for care. We use an advanced endodontic microscope to improve precision, preserve tooth structure and deliver better outcomes. Our advanced microscope magnifies the field of view up to 25 times, allowing us to thoroughly cleanse and sterilize internal portions of infected teeth. Dr. Martinez then fills the tooth and roots with a special material and places a sedative filling to begin the healing phase. Teeth that receive root canals typically are crowned to protect their integrity while restoring function and appearance.
