Endodontic services are offered at our Forest Hill Specialty Office


Dr. Balasudha Baladhandayutham and our Forest Hill endodontic team offer a comprehensive selection of endodontic and root canal services.

Understanding root canal therapy

The most common treatment our Central Virginia endodontists perform is root canal therapy. With this dental procedure, we remove infected or damaged pulp from the inside of a tooth, relieving pain and saving the tooth from extraction.
During the treatment, the endodontist carefully cleans and disinfects the tooth’s interior, and fills and seals the space to prevent future infection. You can expect minimal discomfort during the procedure, thanks to modern techniques and anesthesia.

Endodontic FAQs

Do I need an endodontic treatment?


Symptoms that may indicate the need for endodontic treatment include:

  • Persistent toothache or pain when chewing or applying pressure
  • Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, even after the source is removed
  • Discoloration or darkening of the tooth
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums near the affected tooth
  • A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums

Not everyone experiences noticeable symptoms, so if you're concerned, scheduling a consultation is critical. Our team will evaluate your condition and recommend the appropriate treatment. Addressing issues early can prevent more complex problems.

How often should I follow up after treatment?


Following endodontic treatment, regular follow-up appointments ensure healing is on track. Initially, these may be scheduled a few weeks post-treatment, then annually. These visits allow us to monitor the treated tooth and surrounding tissues, ensuring long-term success.

Can endodontic treatment impact my overall health?


Yes, maintaining dental health with endodontic treatment not only saves your teeth but also contributes to overall well-being. Infections, if left untreated, can lead to more serious health issues.
