What is Endodontics?
At Ron Mamrick DDS, we deal with many different types of issues relating to our patients’ oral health. Endodontics is the branch of dentistry concerning dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of a tooth. Endodontic treatment and procedures are typically known as “root canal treatment” and relate to the soft tissue/pulp of the tooth. Our practice is trained in the area of endodontics, and we help provide options to save our patient’s natural teeth.
How Is Endodontics Different Than Regular Dentistry?
To become an endodontist, Dr. Mamrick completed two or more years of advanced endodontic training after dental school. Dr. Mamrick is trained to perform both routine and very complex, difficult endodontic treatments and procedures. Some of the most common endodontic services provided at our practice include:
- Endodontic surgery

- Other unique situations involving the root and pulp of a tooth
