Dr. Monts' specialist training focused exclusively on non-surgical root canals, non-surgical retreatments of previous root canals, root surgery (apicos), trauma and management of medically compromised patients as well as teaching undergraduate dental students in clinical endodontics.
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 30 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 95% of cases, in our office in Austin, Texas. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort.
