There are seven dental specialties beyond general dentistry, including endodontics. An endodontist specializes in treating the inner portion of the tooth, including the nerves and pulp inside the tooth root canals. At Stafford Oral Surgery, we offer endodontic treatments for oral maladies that impact the living tissue and roots inside teeth, helping prevent tooth loss and other oral problems.

Our experienced dental team at Stafford Oral Surgery can perform endodontic treatments to prevent tooth loss and protect your oral and overall health. Our endodontic services include:
