Advanced Endodontic Care
Providing a full range of endodontic procedures in West Covina, CA
What is Endodontics?
Endodontics addresses a wide range of issues that may affect tissues in and around the teeth, including the dental pulp, teeth roots, nerves, lymphatic tissue, and more. These vital tissues keep teeth healthy and strong, and endodontic procedures protect them when illnesses or injuries weaken them. Endodontic experts are “specialists in saving teeth,” and conduct endodontic procedures that are designed to remove decay and restore strength and stability. These specialized procedures not only help to restore a patient’s smile but also work to protect their long-term health. When the essential structures around your teeth are healthy and free of decay, you can enjoy beautiful, strong teeth for years to come.
The endodontic specialists at Friendly DSC in West Covina, CA, use advanced technology to diagnose endodontic issues sooner, and provide the best possible interventions. Endodontists specialize in treating conditions affecting the deepest parts of the tooth, and they continue their education for three years after dental school to learn to identify and treat these conditions. This additional training and experience allow endodontists to treat complex oral health problems affecting the tooth roots, nerves, and surrounding tissues.
Our Endodontic Services
Endodontic treatments include a number of common procedures you’ve probably heard of, such as root canals, and more complex procedures that are designed to address less common issues. At Friendly DSC, our endodontists use the least invasive methods possible to restore teeth and protect patients’ health. With dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology, we can see symptoms of dental and oral health problems with great detail and clarity. We use this 3-dimensional model to develop the best treatment plan. Our endodontist’s experience, coupled with the latest technology, helps to give our patients faster healing times and better health outcomes.

We Use Advanced Technology to Provide the Best Care
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an advanced x-ray imaging technique that allows our endodontists to get the clearest, most detailed view of the mouth’s innermost structures. This allows us to detect signs of decay, disease, and injury that other x-ray techniques can’t. By creating a 3-dimensional view of the area, we get 360-degree visibility of the problem, so we can safely approach it from the right angle. This not only allows us to intervene sooner, but also get the most accurate diagnosis and design the best treatment options and strategies.
