What to Expect

Doctor Bingham along with your referring dental office will ensure that you will get the appropriate appointment you need. You can be assured that before any treatment is begun, a thorough examination will be done to diagnose orofacial pain, pulpal injury and to determine your need of root canal treatment.

If you should have any questions, before, during or after your appointment, please do not hesitate to ask or call. Your comfort is our main concern.

Consultation/Exam

The consultation appointment allows us to do a comprehensive examination, to diagnose orofacial pain, pulpal injury and to determine if the tooth in question is a good candidate for endodontic therapy. We will also fully explain the diagnosis and treatment options to you.

Root Canal Consultation and Treatment:

After a complete examination, explanation, and treatment plan of the diagnosis, root canal treatment will be completed if necessary. You can expect to be in our office about 90 minutes.
