COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
If your general dentist recommends that you need a root canal or other complex oral surgical procedure, you may be referred to our endodontist in Pikesville.
Although all endodontists are dentists, not all dentists are endodontic dentists. An endodontist has completed a minimum of two years of additional training in the specialized area of endodontic dentistry, which addresses issues and procedures that involve the soft tissues inside of the tooth, which are also known as the pulp. The word endodontic is derived from the Greek words “endo” and “dontic” which means inside the tooth. At Dental One Associates of Pikesville, we strive to be the best endodontist in the Pikesville area so you can be comfortable knowing that we’ll provide you with superior service when you come to our office.

Why Should I See an Endodontist Rather Than My General Dentist?
An endodontic dentist has completed a minimum of two additional years of training in the specialty field of endodontic dentistry, in addition to the many years of training required to become a general dentist. Endodontic dentists strive to save teeth that might not otherwise be salvageable, and they combine sophisticated dental techniques with advanced training in order to provide you with the best outcome possible for your ailing tooth. Our endodontist in Pikesville has years of experience in saving teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted, so if you need a root canal, call us at (443) 898-1231 to schedule a consultation with our root canal expert in Pikesville. We’ll be happy to answer all your questions whether you were referred by your dentist, a friend, a family member or an internet search. Call us today and don’t risk losing your tooth when it could be saved.
Why Would I Need an Endodontic Dentist?
If your tooth is bothering you, the inside of it might be infected, inflamed or damaged. The soft tissue inside of a tooth is called the pulp, and it contains capillaries, nerves, and tissues that supply nutrients and oxygen to the tooth. They also help your tooth to grow during your developmental years. Our root canal specialist in Pikesville can determine whether a root canal is needed or if another type of procedure is more appropriate. Although many people are very apprehensive about having a root canal, the intent of the procedure is to alleviate your pain, not be the cause of it. We’re committed to providing our patients with top-notch experiences when they need endodontics in Pikesville, so we’ll do our best to ensure your comfort during your root canal or other procedure. If you need a root canal or other endodontic procedure, call Dental One Associates of Pikesville at (443) 898-1231 and we’ll schedule a consultation for you. Don’t risk losing your tooth, call us today and we’ll do our best to save it. READ MORE
What Will Your Endodontic Dentist Do During My Appointment?
When you make your initial appointment at our office in Pikesville, we’ll probably request recent x-rays from your general dentist so that we have them in time for your appointment. During your initial consultation, we’ll have you complete a medical history form and list all the medications you currently take, both prescription and over the counter. We may also take additional x-rays if we need them. Then, your endodontic dentist will conduct an exam and evaluate all this information. We’ll then discuss the findings with you and recommend a treatment regimen. Your root canal may be scheduled for the same day or it may be delayed briefly, depending on the severity of the issue and some other factors. If there is a delay, then we’ll provide you with a prescription that should alleviate your symptoms and make you more comfortable in the interim. If you have more questions or want to schedule an appointment, then call us at (443) 898-1231 and we’ll help you. We’ll gladly answer any questions you may have, so don’t delay calling and risk losing your tooth.
Will Your Office Have an Immediate Appointment Available?
We do our utmost to provide our patients with the best dental experience possible when they come to our office in Pikesville. We know that root canals and other procedures can cause anxiety, so we’ll get you into our office as soon as possible. We also realize that a delay can cause you to lose your tooth, and we want you to keep your teeth for as long as possible. Artificial teeth are always an alternative, but they can be costly, so we endeavor to save our patient’s teeth if we can. When you have your natural teeth that are in good condition, you’re more likely to smile, to eat your favorite foods, and to speak more clearly. If you’re having one or more toothaches, don’t procrastinate in calling our office. If you’re not experiencing pain but are having inflammation or swelling or both, then call us right away at (443) 898-1231. We look forward to hearing from you and working with you.
