Endodontics is the branch of dentistry involved with the treatment of soft tissues inside the teeth. The name ‘endodontics’ comes from the Greek words ‘endo-‘ meaning ‘inside’ and ‘odont-‘ meaning teeth. Medical professionals who specialize in this field of dentistry are called endodontists and are the most qualified dental professional to perform root canals and other procedures involving the internal structure of the teeth.

Is it better to see an endodontist for advanced root canal treatment?

Because they specialize in root canals and potential complications that can arise from the procedure, endodontists are the most qualified professional to see for an advanced root canal. Endodontists focus specifically on treating endodontic issues, such as root canals, and therefore have more experience treating the condition and can provide better patient care. Especially in cases that are more complex or require more advanced interventional methods, endodontists are prepared to handle unforeseen events and have the skills, tools, and technology to repair even the most dire of situations. Even in the case of a standard root canal, a patient can benefit from the extra experience that endodontists have in treating their condition.

How do I know when I need to see an endodontist?

It may be recommended to visit an endodontist, if:

• You are experiencing tooth pain
• You have injured your tooth
• Your teeth are sensitive to hot or cold
• There is swelling around the teeth, gums, face
• You have a damaged tooth or teeth that can be saved
• You require an advanced root canal
• Your dentist has referred you to an endodontist

What are the advanced technologies that endodontists use?

Endodontists use many types of advanced technology, including:

Digital X-Rays — Digital X-rays are the new standard of X-ray technology and use less than 80 percent of radiation when compared to conventional X-rays. Digital radiography offers even more benefits than decreased radiation exposure, such as the convenience of images that are immediately viewable. In addition, digital X-rays do not require the chemical processing that conventional radiographs do, which is not only time-consuming but also poses a risk to the environment due to the amount of chemical waste. Digital radiography is also an important component of patient education at Ideal Endodontics. Projection of the X-ray images on a large monitor allows our medical professionals to illustrate diagnoses and explain procedures to patients. Furthermore, because the radiograph images are digital, they do not require large cabinets for storage and are also easily transferable for referrals to other dentists or providing data to insurance companies for filing claims.

3D Imaging (CBCT) — Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an innovative medical imaging technique that provides endodontists at Ideal Endodontics with three-dimensional views of the patient. In certain cases, CBCT greatly enhances the endodontist’s ability to diagnose, evaluate, treat, and care for patients, allowing them to provide better patient care.

Surgical Microscopes — For delicate and complex root canals, enhanced visibility offers more thorough treatment, which can improve the overall outcome of the procedure. During these intricate procedures, non-surgical and surgical endodontics benefit from improved illumination and magnification. With the use of a surgical microscope, the root canal specialists at Ideal Endodontics are able to see directly into the root canal system for accurate treatment of the infected tooth. An added benefit of surgical microscopes is that they can also capture images for your records.
