Dr. Potter will compile all of the necessary information and make a professional recommendation for you and answer any questions to help guide you into making a decision that is right for you.
Often times your dentist will identify a condition with your tooth that he or she is uncertain of the best course of action. Perhaps it is an old root canal that appears to be re-infected. Or sometimes they see a shadow on the x-ray but they are unsure if it represents disease or if it is just a variation of normal.
In these scenarios, your dentist will likely refer you to San Clemente Endodontics for a consultation. This will allow Dr. Potter to evaluate the tooth with the expertise of a root specialist to help decide the best treatment plan for you. Additional angled x-rays and a 3-dimensional scan (CBCT) will be taken so that she can get a good perspective of all aspects of the root. She will also collect some information from testing done on the teeth and gums.
Once all of the information is compiled, she will be able to make a professional recommendation for you and answer any questions to help guide you into making a decision that is right for you.
