Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals specifically with injuries and diseases of the dental pulp and root, as well as the surrounding tissues. Root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures that endodontists perform, but we also treat tooth and nerve pain using a variety of techniques and perform consultations. To become an endodontist, Dr. Humberson received additional schooling and training in her specialty and has extensive experience helping patients just like you. Your comfort is one of our top priorities, and she takes it very seriously.
Dentistry is constantly finding ways to make procedures more efficient, more effective, safer, and more comfortable. Dr. Humberson stays on top of these advances in techniques and technology. For instance, she uses cone beam 3-D scanning technology to take highly detailed images of your teeth and gums so that she can see exactly what is taking place beneath your teeth and gums. This allows for significantly improved diagnostics as well as incredible precision.
We know that nobody ever wants to hear they need a root canal. Out of all the dental treatments out there, root canals probably have the worst reputation! But we want you to know that most root canals aren’t as bad as you may have heard. In fact, a study conducted by the American Association of Endodontists found that most people who think that a root canal is painful have never actually had one!
You can count on Dr. Humberson’s skill to help relieve your pain and improve your oral health.
