Endodontic Patient Information
To provide you with a better understanding of endodontic therapy, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to root canals are discussed.
Varella Endodontics is a dental practice dedicated exclusively to endodontic care (non-surgical and surgical root canal treatments). Root canal treatment is needed when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the tooth, becomes inflamed or infected as a result of trauma, decay, repeated dental procedures, and/or a cracked tooth.
We partner with your dentist to save your tooth and reestablish your oral health by providing pain-free root canal treatment in a compassionate environment of professionalism and clinical excellence.
We consider ourselves an extension of our referring doctors’ practice and we take this responsibility very seriously.

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Fill out the Online Patient Registration. This will expedite your check-in, avoiding delays during your consultation/treatment visit.
If your dentist has taken previous x-rays of the tooth or area that will be evaluated and treated by us, you may request them to forward those images to our office. It may help in your diagnosis. However, we will most likely take additional radiographs at our office in order to ensure we have the proper and most recent information to better assist us during our diagnosis and treatment plan.
