Every year New Hampshire Magazine polls the state’s dentists and asks them to rate their peers. The results of the voting are published in the August issue as, “Meet the State’s Best Dentists”.

Dr. Marshall and his daughter, Bailey (who is a junior at UNH and fills in at the office occasionally) were planning on participating in a half marathon in Portsmouth this fall, but the organizers cancelled the event. They did take part in the Run to Remember half marathon, over last Memorial Day weekend. The 13.1 miler was through the heart of Boston and along the Charles River. It benefits the children of fallen police officers, fire fighters and rescue personnel and was not only a beautiful run, but highly inspirational. They also ran in the Smuttynose Rockfest Half Marathon, last fall. Currently, they are signed up for the Run to Remember again and will see what other races seem tempting in the mean time.

What is a root canal?
Endodontics, commonly known as root canal therapy, is specialty area of dentistry which deals with saving teeth that might otherwise require extraction. It is also one of the most common dental procedures and when provided in a careful and compassionate manner, can be one of the easiest to receive. With well over 14 million performed every year, this simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. Losing any tooth, front or back, will have consequences for your appearance, chewing ability and overall health. A missing front tooth can cause embarrassment. The loss of a back tooth can seriously affect your ability to chew food properly and cause teeth to shift, which could have other long-term consequences. Endodontics involves carefully cleaning and shaping the inside of a tooth, then filling and sealing the canal space with a special root filling material. Depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances, modern root canal treatment is very similar to having a routine filling and usually can be completed in one or two appointments. Afterward, you return to your dentist, who will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect it and restore it to full function. Remember: nothing looks, feels or functions like your natural tooth!

Are there specialists who only do root canals?
Endodontists are specialists in root canal therapy. They have completed four years of dental school and then received at least two years of additional, post-graduate training in endodontics. By limiting their practice to only endodontics, they are known as experts in this field of dentistry and perform routine as well as difficult and very complex endodontic procedures. As a result of their specialty training and years of experience, endodontists are skilled in finding causes of oral and facial pain, managing and relieving tooth pain, treating traumatic injuries to teeth, as well as dealing with calcified, tortuous and intricate canal systems. Dr. Marshall has more than 20 years of experience as an Endodontist and has achieved a reputation for providing excellent care in an extraordinary manner. He utilizes state-of-the-art technology, including digital imaging, operating microscopes, ultrasonic instrumentation and fiber optics while performing root canal treatment. Advanced technologies, together with specialized techniques allow for very accurate and comfortable treatment.
