My appointment was with Dr. Wolgin, Dr. Wolgin and his assistant Jennifer were extremely friendly and made me fill at ease. I would recommend his office to anyone that has to get a root canal. Everyone was very professional and very friendly.

Dr. Wolgin performed a root canal on one of my back molars that had a bad infection, and he was incredible gentle and kind. The infection took a while to respond to the prescribed antibiotics. Dr. Wolgin made sure that it was cleared up before finishing the procedure, which was the responsible, albeit more time consuming, practice to do. Once the root canal was finished, my mouth felt completely better. I would highly recommend Dr. Wolgin and his practice.

What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
Cracked teeth demonstrate many types of symptoms, including pain when chewing, temperature sensitivities, or even the release of biting pressure. It is also common for tooth pain to come and go, making it difficult to diagnose the cause of discomfort.
Chewing can cause movement of the cracked pieces of your tooth, and the pulp within the tooth becomes irritated. At the same time, when biting pressure is released, the crack can close quickly, resulting in sharp pain. Eventually, the pulp will become damaged and your tooth will consistently hurt, even when you are not chewing.
