OUR SERVICES



Non surgical

Root canal therapy


By relieving your pain and treating infection, endodontics is a way to preserve your cosmetics and natural teeth. The root canal procedure is surprisingly uncomplicated.


LEARN THE PROCEDURE


Non surgical

Re-treatment of root canal


While root canals can be very successful for many many years, sometimes they get infected, re-infected or the original infection just doesn’t get better.


WATCH THE VIDEO


Root End Surgery

Apicoectomy


Surgical removal of the tip of a tooth root, and the sealing of the root canal. This procedure is an option when root canal is not possible through the tooth.


WATCH THE VIDEO


Diagnosis of oral pain


The diagnosis of pain is the key to treatment of the dental pulp and effective root canal treatment. Undiagnosed fractures, Bite Problems and cavities can cause non-specific oral pain. Many symptoms in the oral cavity can cause tooth pain but are not tooth related.


Root canal consultations


Proper assessment requires dental x-rays, special dental CAT Scans, and specific instruments. These are vital to the diagnosis and treatment of pulpal disease and root canal therapy.


Emergency root canal


If you are experiencing pain and feel that you need to be seen urgently, we highly recommend that you contact our office early in the day. We will make every effort to accommodate you.

I was very nervous about having my 1st root canal, and the Doctor and his Great Staff explained every part of the process. Dr. Lichstrahl made the entire process painless and I would recommend his Practice to any Family and Friends. TY

I highly recommend this place! After a horrific dental experience. Dr. Lichstrahl and his staff were such a breath of fresh air. The level of care is superb and it makes all the difference. I went in very scared and traumatized and had been in excruciating pain for over a month. But let me tell you…..throughout the course of my root canal, the continuous checking of my comfort level did not go unnoticed and definitely put me at ease not to mention it was not painful. He does not skimp on the numbing agents either!He also referred me to Dr Kusnik Who practices general dentistry and provide the same level of care. I am beyond grateful for him And his entire staff for taking such good care of me and I will continue to use him for all my endodontic Needs in the future. I wish I could give them 10 stars. Thank you guys for everything⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Highly recommend Dr. Lichstrahl! He performed my original root canal and the re-treatment of my root canal. Both times he was gentle, caring and informative of what I could expect and what I was experiencing. I felt comfortable and was not in any pain during or after the procedure. His office followed up the next day to check on me and I felt well cared for.

The doctor’s office is very organized. The staff are all friendly. Dr. Kirsh is very friendly and has patience. He saw me on time. He even drew a picture to explain to me the problem of my teeth and what treatment he thinks I need. He examined my teeth in detail and did root canal for me. The entire procedure painless and went very smoothly. After the procedure done, his office provide me written instruction for me to do after the visit. I highly recommend this doctor to everyone.

Had my first root canal and I was surprised how painless it was. Dr. Kirsh and his staff were amazing! He did an initial consultation explaining everything and asked if I wanted to schedule the procedure for later or if I wanted he could do it immediately. I asked him to do it right away. I didn’t have any pain during the procedure or after. I definitely recommend Dr. Kirsh!

5 stars hands down. Dental procedures are extremely terrifying and finding the right Endodontic specialist is even scarier. Dr Jared Lichstrahl is it. He’s professional, caring, knowledgeable, and his attention to detail is on another level. His assistants are so kind and make the procedure that much better. If you’re scared or hesitant, I promise you, you will feel relieved after leaving.

The Gold StandardI was referred to Dr. Kirsh by my dentist for a root canal that required finesse and specialization. Dr. Kirsh was friendly and his manner of speaking just calms you down. He went over clearly the process and the procedure. Afterwards when I had a question I called the office number on Saturday and he retuned my call minutes later. Heard my concern and addressed it. His office team followed up with the same care and concern as he did. They are an extension of his care and warm nature.He is the standard by which I will measure all others.Thank you for your care. I am so grateful

This is only the second time I ever write a review for a service rendered to me. I highly recommend Dr Kirsh. He is the best doctor I have ever seen in years. He is a very caring, friendly and honest person. In the years he has been treating me, I feel like I am going to see a friend. His entire staff are just fantastic and very nice people. I am normally a complainer, but I have never had anything to complain about Dr Kirsh and his staff.

Dr. Kirsh is a caring and excellent physician. He explained all options and possibilities prior to start of the procedure. When it was decided that the tooth should be extracted he was incredibly fair as to the costs involved. I was really impressed with Dr. Kirsh and his staff, especially Caroline who fit me into their schedule (I was in great pain) and spent a huge amount of time finding an oral surgeon to see me immediately. Thank you all.

I had one root canal in the past and it was unpleasant. I was really hesitant to get another one, ready to get it extracted and move on.My dentist referred me to Dr. Jared’s office and I’m glad I went. The staff were professional, the facility was clean and pleasant, and Dr. Jared was awesome. He must do this all day! He did it quickly and painlessly. Seriously … I didn’t even feel sore when the numbing medication wore off.Plus, they let me where these really cool shades to look extra sporty while getting the work done. I thought they were horrible looking until I took this pic and realized they were better than not bad.The dental assistant and the doctor were both very accommodating and had an arsenal of dentist jokes to keep me laughing while I was there – it helps when you’re worried about impending dental work.

My experience at this office was excellent. Dr. Jared took his time explaining and showing me the details of my condition. This was my first root canal and of course there were a lot of possible complications. Well it’s been several hours later and I feel great. No more pain no more swelling and the procedure was fairly simple and short. Dr. Jared and his staff are terrific. Strongly recommend this office for root canal work!!

There is no better Endodontist ! – Dr. Pena is the most caring, nice, and sensitive Endo out there. And great at what she does and really cares about her patients. You can tell she loves what she does which makes for a much more personal experience. I am a hyper-anxious dental patient and am no longer afraid of root canal. (well mostly) It was painless, faster than I expected, and I had no extenuating issues afterwards. I would send any friend or family member of mine to her.

As someone who has tremendous dental anxiety, I cannot recommend Dr. Lichstrahl and his staff enough. During my consult and procedure day, Carol and Dr. made sure I was comfortable, feeling okay and answered all my questions. Unlike other doctors, Dr. Lichstrahl was thorough, knowledgable and most comforting, had great bedside manner. Actually not afraid to come back! Highly recommend.

I went in thinking I would be getting TWO root canals. After evaluation I thankfully only needed one. This was the least painful and least stressful dental procedure I have ever experienced. Dr. Lichstrahl was thorough in his assessments and explanations, had a professional and pleasant bedside manner, and demonstrated impeccable skill with his instruments! I was never uncomfortable for even a moment, including the injections! (Which are usually the WORST!). I highly recommend this practice for all of your major dental procedures!

Dr. Lichstrahl is the consummate professional. His exacting methods and knowledge, combined with his long term approach to good tooth/gum health, allows the patient to feel absolutely certain that they are receiving the best possible care. Dr. Lichstrahl is detailed and cautious. His patient-centered approach is both comforting and instills confidence- that the procedure prescribed is necessary and the best course of action to remedy the patient’s concerns.

I was nervous about doing a route canal and put it off for as long as I could. I was finally referred to Dr. Kirsh and went in for an emergency visit. His office staff was very friendly but Dr. Kirsh was amazing. He is very patient, kind, and gentle. I had to wait because they squeezed me in without an appointment but he periodically came in to check on me to make sure that I wasn’t in any pain and was comfortable. He spoke to me with patience and respect. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone.

Dr Edward Kirsh is the best Endodontist! I was referred to Dr Kirsh a couple of years ago to fix the work of another Endodontist. Whenever I have pain in a tooth, I go straight to Dr Kirsh. He will only perform a root canal after a thorough dental exam to rule out other dental issues. If a root canal is not needed, he will send me to the proper specialist to resolve the pain in my tooth. I feel lucky to have found Dr Kirsh. I highly recommend him.

No other dentist/oral surgeon has ever found that and I’m feeling great! Additionally, the office staff, assistants and hygienists are very kind and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Lichstrahl!

I ended up having to have two root canals in one week. After one of them, it appeared that I ended up also having an infection. From making the appts, to having the work done, needing add’l medication thereafter, and up til now, I can not say enough great things about this office and Dr. Lichstral. This office, I mean everyone, was extremely personable, knowledgeable, and helped with a very stressful time in my life. I have to mention that they constantly called and checked on my progress. Prior to having the root canals, I had another procedure that lead me to this office, therefore, I had been in pain roughly two weeks constantly until I came to this office and now today, almost one month later, I am in no pain and almost done with taking the Penicillin. If you ever had a major toothache, when the pain is in your ear, jaw and everywhere, you understand why people decide to remove and place their teeth on the table. Due to this office, I’m glad my situation did not come to that. Thank you to the entire staff for making this a great Memorial Day for me; I think I can now eat more than mashed potatoes and mushy food 🙂

I wish there was a 10 star rating for this doctor, his staff, and the other dentists at his practice. EVERYONE is so friendly, professional, calming, Etc., Etc. My root canal procedure was PAIN FREE! The doctors make sure you are totally at ease and are so reassuring. If anyone out there is hesitant (as I was–who WANTS a root canal?), I can only say trust me……Why put up with a tooth ache, when these fine people can make you pain free—-painlessly!!!
