Endodontics is the dental specialty that focuses on the dental pulp, that is the nervous and vascular tissue beneath the visible part of the tooth. The most well-known endodontic treatment is the root canal. Once a source of dread for many patients, more modern techniques have made the root canal faster and more predictable for patients. Dr. Geelan performs root canals regularly at his practice using the latest technology and techniques. Sedation techniques and medications also limit any discomfort that patients may feel during or after the procedure.For unusual cases, or per patient request, Dr. Geelan can refer patients to a specialist.
