An endodontic consultation is your initial appointment with the team at 3D MicroEndo. Your endodontist and other clinical team members get to know you and examine your teeth to diagnose the condition causing your pain, sensitivity, or other symptoms.
Your regular dentist might refer you to the endodontic team at 3D MicroEndo, or you could seek out endodontic treatment on your own. In either case, the team offers endodontic consultations to ensure you receive the best, most effective treatment to restore your dental health.
Many endodontic conditions don’t cause noticeable symptoms in their early stages. In most cases, your dentist sees something abnormal inside your teeth on your routine dental X-rays. However, you might schedule an endodontic consultation if you have a traumatic dental injury or tooth pain.
Many conditions contribute to tooth pain, including internal decay, advanced internal resorption, abscesses, and open dental apexes. The team at 3D MicroEndo can diagnose these issues during your endodontic consultation and recommend a treatment plan.
You should also schedule an endodontic consultation following a traumatic tooth injury such as a knocked out tooth or a severe break. Traumatic dental injuries can damage the inside of your tooth, and when left untreated, lead to severe pain, infection, and other complications.
An endodontic consultation includes a discussion about your symptoms and dental health as well as a thorough exam. After you check in with the friendly and knowledgeable office team, you meet with your endodontist and their assistant. You explain your symptoms and answer questions about your dental history.
Next, they take X-rays and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans of your teeth and jaw. These images allow your endodontist to examine the insides of your teeth in close detail, revealing evidence of decay, trauma, internal resorption, and other structural abnormalities that can put the pulpy interior of your teeth at risk.
Depending on what your X-rays and scans reveal, your endodontist might complete additional testing to check for sensitivity to temperature or for other signs of infection. Finally, they confirm your diagnosis and create your treatment plan.
The team at 3D MicroEndo provides a comprehensive range of endodontic therapies to treat problems inside your teeth. Depending on your needs, you might need to schedule multiple appointments for treatment and follow-up.
