Endodontics Q&A

What is endodontics?

Endodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that concentrates on diagnosing and treating problems that affect the dental pulp and the tissues around the roots of your teeth.

All endodontists are dentists, but few dentists complete the 2-3 years of additional training required to practice endodontics.

A leader in his field, Dr. Bashar completed an endodontic honors program along with his Doctor of Dental Surgery. He continues to pursue education every day so he can provide you with the best care available.

When should I see an endodontist?

You may need endodontic care if you suffer from tooth pain, oral pain, or facial pain due to a traumatic injury, infection, or severe decay. As an expert endodontist, Dr. Bashar has the skills and knowledge to diagnose complex oral problems and provide individualized treatment.

At Sunrise Dental of North Bend, Dr. Bashar and his team use advanced diagnostic and therapeutic technologies in the office, including digital X-rays, 3D dental imaging with computed tomography (CT) scans, intraoral camera photos, and a platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) machine.

What procedures and treatments does endodontics entail?

At Sunrise Dental of North Bend, Dr. Bashar uses advanced technologies and specialized techniques, such as:

Root canal therapy

You may need root canal therapy if you have an infected, painful, or badly damaged tooth. Root canal therapy, also called endodontic therapy, involves cleaning and repairing the tooth to save it from extraction.

Root canals have a reputation for being painful, but Dr. Bashar specializes in painless root canal therapy. You’ll find that root canal therapy actually relieves pain instead of causing it. 

At Sunrise Dental of North Bend, Dr. Bashar uses modern anesthesia options and surgical techniques that make root canal therapy as easy and painless as getting a filling.

Oral surgery

Sometimes, a tooth is broken or damaged beyond repair. In these cases, Dr. Bashar may perform oral surgery to remove the tooth from your mouth. He uses the latest technology to diagnose and treat complex dental extractions.
