Welcome to Ryan Endodontics!

We are your root canal specialists, dentists specializing in endodontics, a branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing and treating dental pulp and the tissues surrounding the roots of teeth. Root canal specialists are also known as endodontists. We have received additional training beyond dental school to become experts in performing root canal treatments and other procedures related to the inner structures of teeth.

Root Canal Specialists

Here's how a root canal is typically carried out:

Here are some key aspects of root canal specialists and our work:

Education and Training

Education and Training: Endodontists are dentists who have completed additional years of specialized education and training in the field of endodontics. This typically involves at least two years of postgraduate education. Their specialized training equips them with the skills and knowledge to diagnose and treat complex tooth infections and dental pain cases.


Root canal specialists are experts in diagnosing the cause of dental pain and discomfort. They use various diagnostic tools, such as X-rays and 3D imaging techniques, to determine if a tooth’s pulp is infected or damaged.


The primary focus of endodontists is performing root canal therapy. This procedure involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the interior of the tooth’s root canals, and then sealing the tooth to prevent further infection. Root canal therapy aims to save the natural tooth and relieve pain.

Complex Cases

Endodontists are often called upon to handle complex cases that may involve multiple canals within a tooth, retreatment of previous root canals, or treatment of teeth with unusual anatomical features.

Pain Management

Root canal specialists are skilled in pain management techniques, ensuring that patients are comfortable during the procedure. They may use local anesthesia or, in some cases, offer sedation options for patients with dental anxiety.

Follow-Up Care

After performing a root canal, we may also provide guidance on post-treatment care and refer patients back to your general dentists for any necessary restoration, such as placing a crown on the treated tooth.

Emergencies: We are available for dental emergencies involving severe tooth pain or dental trauma. We can provide prompt care to alleviate pain and prevent further complications.
