Dr. Desai received advanced training during residency in endodontics, which is the field of dentistry commonly known as root canals. Technology has propelled endodontics into becoming a much more enjoyable dental treatment. Rotary endodontics shorten appointment times and warm gutta percha methods more efficiently seal the root canals. These treatments are indicated when dental caries, or cavities, have decayed through the tooth and infected its interior nerve. Be sure to inform our staff of any sensitivities to hot or cold your teeth may experience, as well as any pain upon biting as these symptoms may be precursors to an infected root canal.
