Endodontic Procedures

Today’s advanced endodontic treatments and materials can give you a healthier, more complete smile that can last you a lifetime. Your Beckley, WV endodontist, Dr. Jim Vargo, can help revitalize and maintain your teeth and gums, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted.

Dr. James Vargo provides endodontic therapy otherwise known as root canal therapy.  Endodontists are dentists with at least two years of specialty training after receiving a four year dental school degree.  During two years of specialty training, endodontists are taught to treat more difficult cases, diagnose and relieve oral discomfort, treat traumatic injuries to the teeth, and to perform internal bleaching procedures of discolored teeth.  Your dentist has referred you to Dr. Vargo because your tooth or situation is of greater than average difficulty and because we treat these types of cases every day.  You will be treated with understanding and compassion by an experienced specialist.  The office utilizes state of the art equipment and technology like Carl Zeiss operating microscopes, ultrasonic instrumentation, and Dexis digital radiography.  We also provide oral sedation for your comfort if your circumstances require this service.

Choosing a healthcare provider is one of the most important decisions you can make. You want someone who is caring, knowledgeable, and accessible. Someone willing to take the time to go over all of your options and treat you as a person, not just a patient.

At our practice, we pride ourselves on our patient service. We offer an experienced and knowledgeable staff, safe and proven procedures, and the latest in dental technology.  In addition, Dr. Vargo has been practicing dentistry and serving the people of southern West Virginia for nearly 30 years.

We’ve created this web site for both new and current patients. It includes specific information on our practice and about Dr. Vargo, along with general oral wellness information.

Root Canal Surgery.  Beckley, WV

Endodontic (root canal) surgery can be used to locate fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth. Damaged root surfaces or infection in the surrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection, also known as periradicular surgery.
