Experienced Endodontic Care
Providing a full range of endodontic treatments in South Gate, CA
What is Endodontics?
Endodontic treatments help to strengthen and protect some of the most sensitive and vital structures in and around teeth, including the dental pulp, teeth roots, nerves, lymphatic tissue, and more.
When bacteria, injuries, or illnesses threaten these essential structures, it’s important to get the right care right away. Endodontic experts pride themselves as “specialists in saving teeth.” With the right interventions, even teeth that are affected by deep-set decay can be saved. Endodontic treatments are designed to not only save a patient’s smile but also protect their long-term health.
At Central DSC in South Gate, CA, we use the most advanced techniques and technology to help and heal tooth roots, nerves, and surrounding tissue. Endodontists are specialists that continue their education and training after dental school for three years to diagnose and treat conditions specifically affecting dental pulp and surrounding tissues. This additional training and experience with the latest procedures allow endodontists to stop deeply embedded infections, diagnose complex oral health problems, restore oral health after injuries, and much more.
Our Endodontic Services
Endodontic services often address advanced decay and infection attacking the teeth pulp, teeth roots, and surrounding structures.
With dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology, we can see these issues in great detail, and we can design the best course of action. Our experienced specialists work carefully to remove bacteria, infection, and decay; stop pain; and restore patients’ oral health.

We Use Advanced Technology to Provide the Best Care
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an advanced x-ray imaging technique that helps our endodontists to get the most accurate, detailed view of deep structures in the mouth.
This allows us to detect signs of decay, disease, and injury that other x-ray techniques can’t. By creating a 3-dimensional view of the area, we get 360-degree visibility of the problem, so we can safely approach it from the right angle. This allows us to intervene sooner, helps us provide the most accurate diagnosis, and lets us design the best treatment options and strategies.
