Berkeley Endodontics, started by Dr. Harold Crangle, has been serving patients in the East Bay since 1972. Since then we have grown to a practice of four endodontists, offering the full scope of endodontic treatment to our patients. To better achieve our goal of providing the highest quality treatment in a comfortable environment, we moved in 2007 to a new office located at 2850 Telegraph Avenue, a few blocks from our previous office.
Endodontic treatment 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 for dental implants or a bridge.
At the center of your tooth is the pulp. Pulp tissue is a collection of blood vessels and nerves that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Inflammation or infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures.
