Endodontics

Endodontics is the dental specialty that deals with the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth and the tooth pulp. Tooth pulp is located at the center of a tooth containing nerves that can cause severe pain when exposed through decay or trauma. Endodontists are dentists specializing in this area of dentistry. An additional 2 – 3 years study is required before an endodontist can be certified.

Endodontists are primarily noted for a micro procedure called Root Canal Therapy. Using specialized equipment and magnification Endodontists are able to clean out the diseased or exposed pulp areas of the tooth, including the root canals and filling them with special fillings that heal and strengthen the roots and center pulp areas of the tooth.

In the fairly recent past, endodontic treatment (root canal therapy) would take several treatments over a few weeks. Today, thanks to new tools, materials, and advanced training, these root canal procedures are, with few exceptions, accomplished painlessly in a single visit.

At Reardon Dental, our Endodontist is Dr. Craig Appelstein. Dr. Applestein received his certification in endodontics in 2008 and is an active member of the American Association of Endodontists. He has published several articles in endodontic journals. (See Dr. Appelstein’s full bio)

What Our Patients Are Saying

  • Lillie D.9/14/2020

    Had an appointment at Reardon today for a fractured lower incisor, and must say in my 33 years on earth this was the most pleasant and best dental experience I've ever had. Their facility is large, clean, and very well maintained. The staff is excellent, in that they're very friendly and good at what they do. They are practicing as safely as I've seen any medical facility practice during the pandemic. My appointment was started on time (which never happens for any doctors appointment) and I was out of there quickly. Fast, efficient, good at what they do. I will definitely be returning to this practice and highly encourage anyone in the Phoenixville area to look no further for a dentist!

    I used to live in Kimberton, but moved two years ago to Conshohocken. However, I like Reardon Dental so much that I still travel back to Phoenixville for my dental care. They stay current with dental procedures and techniques and I always feel good after getting my teeth cleaned.

  • Maureen S.7/12/2020

    Reardon Dental doctors and staff were total pros from the moment I scheduled the appointment. Great communication prior to my appointment. When I arrived at the office the screening, the waiting room set up, the hygienist and Dr O’Brien all worked together to make everything go seamlessly and safely. Thank you all; I know that you are doing important work under difficult circumstances. I am so grateful!

    I really enjoy coming here. The staff is friendly and always great at answering my (many) questions. Both myself and my husband go here and I realize my anxiety about the dentist has greatly decreased since I’ve been coming here. I would highly recommend them.
