Correct diagnosis is the key in medicine and is no less important in dentistry and the specialty of endodontics. The keys in endodontic diagnosis are to identify whether the pain is tooth or no-tooth related, and specifically which tooth. There are several causative factors related to tooth pain. Cavities and cracks in teeth are the major ones. Teeth can need root canals for two major reasons, inflammation or necrosis (death) of the pulp tissue. Radiographs, tests, clinical examination and experience all help Dr. Walmann come up with a diagnosis for you. Dr. Walmann will explain the problem you are having and expected outcomes after treatment.
