What is Endodontics
Briefly, Endodontics is a recognized dental specialty that involves the treatment of the pulp (and root canals) of the tooth. The part of the tooth that you see above the gum line is called the crown and within it is where the pulp chamber is found. The rest of the tooth, the portion hidden beneath the gum line, is called the root. Though The pulp and channel or "root canal" that flows from it, contain soft tissue, made up mostly of blood vessels and nerves.
Once bacteria (germs) are introduced into the pulp and the root canals, primarily because of tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth fracture, or other problems, it can infect this tissue and irreversibly damage it. When that happens, an Endodontist will remove the diseased pulp and seal the pulp chamber and root canals in order to save the tooth and prevent further infection and inflammation. After successful endodontic treatment has taken place, the tooth will be able to continue to function. To learn more about what we offer please Click Here!

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Parsi personally and have spoken to him about his health based approach to Endodontics (Treatment of Root Canals) and Dental Implants. I consider him be an exceptionally well trained, experienced, skilled and caring health-focused mercury safe Endodontist. I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and he utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of his patients. He promotes patient education and has a personal interest in the health and healing of his patients.
In my many years of being involved in Mercury Safe Dentistry I've only found a few Endodonts in the country who not only do not use mercury fillings in treating root canals but have also made their offices occupationally safe regarding mercury. His deep concern for his patients' health, his ongoing training in advanced Endodontics, and his concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes him unique in this field.
I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury safe Endodontist and Implantologist. Dr. Parsi is also a charter member of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD). I recommend visiting his website to learn more about his whole-body approach to treating root canals.
Don't forget to recommend him to your friends and family who are faced with either root canals or implants. And also to your holistic dentist as referral source.
When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and tell him hello for me. Thanks!
