We Consistently Provide Patients With a Positive Experience
"I had a great experience when I had an appointment for a root canal with Dr. Hodges. I was warmly greeted at the front desk of a bright, cheery office. Things only got better as time went on... If you need a root canal make an appointment with Dr. Eric Hodges for your positive, painless experience... He has cared for patients of al race creeds and colors. ALL ARE WELCOME!" Valerie Holloman
When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, a dentist or endodontist must eliminate the bacteria in the infected root canal to save the tooth and prevent the infection from spreading to the surrounding teeth and other structures. Your dentist can then reinforce the treated tooth with a crown.
If you've undergone root canal therapy that wasn't successful, your tooth hasn't healed properly after your procedure, or you're still experiencing pain, we can perform endodontic retreatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose an endodontist instead of a dentist?
While general dentists attend dental school and offer a range of care, endodontists are dentists who have completed dental school and undergone 2-3 years of additional education for specialized training. Endodontists specialize in root canal therapy, and while a general dentist may perform 1-2 root canal procedures each week, an endodontist may do upwards of 25. Your dentist may refer you to us to treat your tooth pain, especially if your condition is complex.
Is root canal therapy painful?
Not with us. With the use of local anesthetic, gentle techniques, and technology like the GentleWave System, root canal therapy is more comfortable than ever. Many of our patients report that their root canal therapy is painless and the time they spend with us is actually relaxing.
Why should I choose root canal therapy?
Without root canal therapy, tooth extraction may be necessary, and dentists always try to preserve teeth if possible. Root canal therapy can save an infected tooth, prevent the infection from spreading to other teeth, and prevent the need for extraction. Root canal therapy really is the best way to save your natural teeth and reduce the risk of jawbone damage.
