Icon representing EndodonticsMost dental work and dental treatments focus on the exterior of the tooth. Tooth repairs, fillings and even dental crowns are treatments to the dentin and enamel which do not necessarily impact the live pulp inside the tooth. When the interior of the tooth is affected, a specialized type of dental treatment is needed. Endodontics is a dental specialty for treating the root system and live pulp inside teeth. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer endodontic therapy and dentistry at our dental center in Federal Way, WA.

The live pulp inside the tooth contains the nerve roots and blood supply that connects the tooth to the systems in the body. When the nerve roots and pulp are impacted by injury, decay or infection, it can jeopardize the tooth. Endodontics is a dental specialty that can preserve a tooth by removing infection inside the tooth and preventing the need for extraction. The most commonly used endodontic treatment is root canal therapy, which removes the nerve roots and pulp to save an infected tooth.

Internal Tooth Therapy

When the interior of your tooth needs treatment, you need a dentist who offers endodontics. This is a more complex area of dentistry, and is vital for saving infected teeth from extraction. The field of endodontics has improved greatly in the last few decades with new technology and techniques. Our dental center in Federal Way has the latest technology and an experienced dentist who specializes in performing endodontic therapy. Our endodontic treatment options include:

Endodontics may require oral surgery, dental crowns and other advanced treatments in tandem with endodontic therapy. Dr. Vien Nguyen offers cutting-edge dental technology and specialized treatments to perform intricate endodontics at our facility.

When you have an infected tooth or want to restore a tooth after root canal therapy, endodontics may be required for treatment. Our experienced dental team at First Smile Family Dental offers endodontic therapy at our dental center in Federal Way, WA. We welcome new patients, and our practice accepts many types of dental insurance. Contact our dental practice today to schedule your endodontic consultation.

  • Susan C.

    I absolutely LOVE Dr. Nguyen! She was kind, compassionate, and exactly what I need in a dentist! She made me feel comfortable right away and genuinely cared about me as a person, AND the health of my teeth!

  • Terry H.

    From the time my husband and I walked in the door to walking out it was absolutely amazing!! The care from the receptionist to the technician to the dentist was without a doubt the most professional caring understanding staff. I am not one who enjoys the dentist but they made it so that I was very relaxed and look forward to going again.

  • Kyle G.

    Top of the line customer service from the front desk to the dental chair. Really happy with not only the doctor, but her assistant and everyone that worked there. The cleaning was expertly done, all photos and decisions were thoughtfully explained and I learned new things about my teeth that I did not know before.

  • Teo T.
