If root canal therapy is indicated, a local anesthetic is used. We will remove the nerve and bacteria from your tooth, clean the infection and seal theroots of the tooth. You will have no pain during this procedure. It can usually be completed in one to twovisits depending on the required treatment. Most patients return to their normal daily routine after treatment. After treatment is completed you will need to see your general dentist within one month for a final restoration. A treatment report will be sent to their office.

Generally, conventional root canal therapy is all that is needed. Success rates for a non-surgical treatmentis above90%. Occasionally, microsurgerymay beneeded to save a tooth. This technique can be useful in locating root fractures and treating canals thatmay not be able to beaccessed through standard root canal therapy.The most common microsurgical procedure iscalled an apicoectomy.

It is unusual for patients to experience complications after conventional root canal therapy or microsurgery. However, if you do experience any problems, we are available to respond to you atany time.

It is normal for your tooth to be sore for the first few days after root canal therapy has been completed. Initially, soft foods are recommended, as they will provide less discomfort during chewing. The soreness may continue for up to one week. Your tooth may feel differently the second and third weeks. By the fourth week, it should feel like your other teeth.

You will be givenIbuprofen to aid post-operative healing and to help manage any discomfort. It isan anti-inflammatory pain medication that will reduce the inflammation in the area that was treated. If the Ibuprofen does not alleviate your symptoms, please call the office and let us know.

For female patients, there may be an interaction between antibiotics and oral contraceptives.If you are presently taking antibiotics or if our office has prescribed them, please use alternative means of birth control for your entire cycle that month.

If you have any questions or concerns following your treatment, please do not hesitate to call our office. If your call is after office hours or on the weekend, the doctors cell phone number will be available.

Dr. Kasper did my root canel on tooth number 4. That tooth is in the right front of my mouth, so I was very nervous about having the procedure done. But Dr.Kasper was very warm and kind he communicated clearly to me what needed to be done and how. This helped me to calm down. The procedure was quick and the only pain I felt was a pinch from the anesthesia shot , other then that the procedure was PAIN FREE! Dr. Kasper assistant Arlyne was very kind and warm. In fact his whole team made me feel very welcomed. If you are reading this review because you are in need of a root canal, don't delay any longer I highly recommend this office, make your appointment with Dr. Kasper, you will not be disappointed!

Highly recommend Modern Endodontics for your root canal! Front office staff was efficient and quickly scheduled my appointment. Dr. Kasper was great - he communicated clearly to me what needed to be done and how. I always feared having a root canal, and this experience put my fears aside. It was a quick and painless procedure. Highly recommend this office.

Hands down one of the best dental procedural experiences of my life. Everyone cringes when you ask them about a root canal. Not me. I actually fell asleep in the chair while my root canal was being done. Dr. Kasper was extremely friendly, diligent, and professional in his work. Would recommend this place to anyone!

Does anyone ever WANT a root canal? No. But if you need a root canal, there's truly no better place. I've had 2 completed by Dr. Bell and honestly, I will come back to him for any future endodontic work. The staff is super thorough, especially when helping book appointments and working through the cancellation list. They are true wizards with a calendar. The assisting staff is always pleasant, accommodating, and they really move like a well-oiled machine alongside Dr. Bell. I can't thank Dr. Bell enough for his absolutely outstanding work, the ease he brings to the chair is something that's calming especially for someone with chronic dental anxiety. He is encouraging, thorough, precise, and just brilliant. He's also a kind, hospitable, and all-around lovely family man. It's nice to connect and exchange stories about the kids. I feel like family here and it's such a pleasure. He even let me take a photo afterward so I can prove to my son how brave I was for going to the dentist. ;) Thank you to the whole team!

I Highly Recommend Dr Bell. When my OWN Dentist Turned me Away(which was devastating to me) For a Serious ER Tooth Issue that Was VERY Painful to say the Least, he Referred me to Dr Bell. i Was VERY Upset and Disappointed my dentist of Years Was NOT there for me when i Needed him to be. Everything Happens for a Reason. Dr Bell was Very Empathetic to What i Was Going Through and Helped me and i VERY Much Appreciated That. i Have Already Referred Someone to him that is in Need of 2 Root Canals.. And That's How it Works! Even Through this Covid 19 Nightmare, Don't Give Up Because there IS a Professional out there That IS Willing to Help You. Thank you Dr. Bell and Your Courteous Staff.

I didn't get to see the doctors, so I have no knowledge of their skills. But if you have any concerns over your personal privacy, you should be concerned about their office policies. They require a photograph of every patient when Ii expressed concerns about this, I was told that was the policy period and if I didn't want my photo taken I could leave. So I did.

I went to see Dr. Logan Bell for a diagnosis of a tooth that has been bothering me for quite sometime. I was welcomed by two wonderful women at reception & taken back by the technician who took the xrays before the doctor came in & made me feel at ease & laugh considering the situation. Finally, when Dr. Bell came in, he reviewed & assessed the xrays. I was extremely happy by the way he explained the prognosis of the tooth & how he could best help me relieve my pain in that area. I highly recommend Dr. Bell & his office for any endodontic / root canal needs. He is very kind, considerate, & knowledgeable in this complex dental field ! He is my first choice for any potential root canal needs in the future. Thank you for all the help Modern Endodontics & Dr. Logan Bell !
