Endodontists Near Boston, MA

North Shore & Brookline Endodontics (NSBENDO) has been providing superior endodontic care to patients in the North Shore and Boston area for over 55 years. With five convenient locations, state-of-the-art technology, and a team of skilled endodontists, it’s easy to see why so many local dentists and doctors refer their patients to our practice.

Our Boston endodontic services include:

Endodontic or Root Canal Therapy – Also known as endodontic treatment, root canal therapy allows us to save a compromised tooth by removing infected or inflamed pulp, filling the chamber, and sealing it to prevent future infection.

Endodontic Re-Treatment – When an initial root canal treatment fails or a tooth becomes reinfected, we perform a second root canal to prevent the need for extraction. This is known as endodontic re-treatment. 

Endodontic Surgery – During endodontic surgery, or apicoectomy, our doctors access the root tips of the tooth and its surrounding tissue to remove infected areas.

Sedation Endodontics – For your comfort and safety, our endodontists have advanced training in sedation endodontics. We offer a range of sedation options for patients with dental anxiety or phobia.

Traumatic Dental Injuries – Endodontists have expertise in saving teeth, which is why we’re often consulted when a patient experiences a dental injury. Whether it’s a knocked out tooth or one that has broken into pieces, we can provide the prompt treatment needed to save your smile.

Cracked Teeth & Fractures – The cracks in teeth are not always apparent upon visual examination by a dentist. Endodontists are trained to identify cracks and fractures early, when we have the best chance to save your tooth.

Diagnosis of Dental Pain – Our 3D Cone Beam Computerized Technology and in-depth knowledge gives us the ability to pinpoint the cause of dental and facial pain so we can provide the endodontic care needed to help you feel comfortable again

Northshore Endodontics History

Our office provides a complete selection of endodontic services and treatment of traumatic dental injuries, cracked teeth, and dental pain.

Root Canal Therapy. root canal removes infected pulp from a tooth's interior and clears any infection, relieving pain and possibly saving the tooth from extraction. The endodontist then fills and re-seals the tooth. A dentist completes the restoration by applying a filling or crown.

Endodontic Re-Treatment. Sometimes root canals fail to remove all infected pulp. On other occasions, a restoration like a filling or crown may let food or saliva into the tooth. If a tooth that has undergone a root canal begins to hurt again, an endodontist should examine it to see whether it needs re-treatment. As part of the re-treatment process, the endodontist opens the tooth again and takes care of the infected material.

Apical Surgery (Apicoectomy). An apicoectomy may be necessary when pain and swelling persist after a root canal. Apical surgery takes care of infections inside the root tip. The procedure is also called a root-end resection. To perform the apicoectomy, the endodontist makes a small incision through the gum and bone and removes the infected root tip.

Sedation Endodontics. We understand that many patients feel nervous about endodontic work. While our procedures are comfortable for most patients under local anesthesia, we offer multiple sedation options for patients who need them.

Traumatic Dental Injuries. Traumatic dental injuries may occur during falls, accidents, and sports. We treat damaged teeth by performing root canals and sealing the tooth against future damage. We will do our best to save your natural tooth from extraction.

Cracked Teeth & Fractures. Cracked teeth can cause a great deal of pain. If you suspect you have a fractured or cracked tooth, have it assessed promptly. An expert endodontist can diagnose your problem and prolong the life of your tooth.

Diagnosis of Dental Pain. Endodontists dedicate themselves to resolving facial and dental pain. Using advanced diagnostic tools like the CBCT scanner, our endodontists can pinpoint the cause of your pain and create a workable treatment plan.

At North Shore & Brookline Endodontics, we can resolve your dental pain and preserve your natural teeth to the fullest possible extent. We maintain a friendly, patient-centered environment and offer state-of-the-art dental care.

Patient Testimonials

"I was referred here by my dentist for a root canal, and was able to call and schedule one easily for the next week. I've had root canals previously, but my experience with Dr. Singh was outstanding. She and her assistant made me feel at ease and explained what they were doing in a way that was easy to understand. I experienced so little discomfort that I even fell asleep during different points of the procedure. While I hope I never have another reason to visit, I would happily come back to Dr. Singh for any endodontic needs."
Deborah C. – Boston, MA

"Under the expert, efficient, communicative, friendly care of Harvard-trained practice partner Dr. Fiza Singh—having a root canal was, shockingly, an absolute pleasure! There is nothing more comforting than knowing you are receiving top-notch treatment, and Dr. Singh is the best. From a pleasant reception to the kind and comforting support of assistant Pamela throughout the process, to clear explanations and thorough information on aftercare procedures, I experienced a highly professional, pleasant and pain-free visit."
Niki B. – Brookline, MA

"I had a wonderful experience here for a root canal with Dr. Shamritsky. The procedure was very comfortable and efficient. The doctor was attentive to my concerns and took his time to explain each step of the procedure to me. The office is conveniently to the green line, immaculate, and organized. The receptionist Daria is great too!
Melody D.

Absolutely fantastic experience! I can’t thank Dr. Shamritsky enough for helping my mother with her root canal. She recently arrived from Ukraine, was in pain and in a desperate need of urgent help! Dr. Shamritsky is a great professional, extremely knowledgeable and very patient. His assistant was helping my mom a lot, explaining the process, keeping her calm and comfortable. My mom didn’t feel any pain during the procedure and after it. I’m so glad she was in such good hands.The whole team was so understanding and accommodating. We received not only great professional help, but also very warm and kind care. We are beyond grateful! Cannot recommend them enough! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help!"

Frequently Asked Questions About Endodontics in Boston

Why should I see an endodontist for a root canal?
Endodontists are specialists when it comes to saving teeth. While many general dentists offer root canals, endodontists have additional education, training, and advanced technology to provide exceptional care.
Does it hurt to get a root canal?
We use local anesthetic injections to numb the affected tooth and tissue surrounding it to keep you comfortable throughout your procedure. Most patients find that their root canal treatment was easier than they anticipated.
How do I find the best endodontist in Boston?
Patient reviews, referrals from dentists and doctors, and word-of-mouth recommendations from friends and family are all excellent ways to find an endodontist. Also be sure to check a doctor’s credentials—at NSBENDO, our endodontists are among the best in the area. They are active in professional associations and pursue continuing education to stay at the top of their field.
Can I have my tooth extracted instead of getting a root canal?
It’s always recommended that you save your natural tooth whenever possible for optimal oral health. When a tooth is extracted, it must be replaced, which can be a lengthy process with potential complications. Saving your tooth is a better use of your time and money.
