Your oral health and general wellbeing are very closely linked. Because of that, an infection in one of your teeth can cause problems for your smile and your overall health. Even a minor toothache should not be ignored until it becomes unbearable. If you are experiencing pain or tooth sensitivity, call 801-282-1651 to make an appointment at Kochevar Endodontics with our endodontist, Dr. Jeff Kochevar. We can see patients as young as age eight and if you cope with dental anxiety our team will be happy to work with you. We offer the following endodontic services in South Jordan, Utah:
- Root Canal Retreatment
- Root Canal Treatment
Each one of your teeth has pulp, and endodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on this part of your tooth. The roots keep your teeth connected to your jawbone and allow the blood vessels access the pulp, which is the innermost layer of your tooth. The pulp is needed to keep your tooth healthy and alive. If that pulp becomes infected, our endodontist can remove the pulp via a treatment called a root canal and still preserve the structure of your tooth. Our office also provides endodontic retreatments and surgical orthodontics if you have further issues.
