What is an endodontist?

This kind of professional specializes in endodontics which is a kind of dentistry focused on treating the soft tissues inside teeth. There are instances when these tissues become inflamed or even infected due to tooth decay, a crack, a chip, or repeated dental procedures, and this is when a root canal may be necessary. The procedure can prevent an abscess in the tooth, saving it entirely. An endodontist is a root canal specialist and the most qualified professional to provide root canals. There are other procedures an endodontist performs, like a dental implant.

Is it better to go to an endodontist for a root canal?

Any general dentist can perform a root canal procedure, but an endodontist is more capable, and a specialist in root canals. In fact, often a dentist will refer a patient to an endodontist for a root canal. You can choose which professional you see, but it’s generally better to go to an endodontist because one possesses:

  • Specialization – Being an expert in root canals, an endodontist is often more precise and efficient and can complete a procedure in one sitting
  • Greater experience – An endodontist does an average of ten times as many root canals a week as a general dentist
  • Greater availability – An endodontist may be able to see you on a minor-emergency basis when necessary
  • Training with advanced technology – State-of-the-art technology is used by an endodontist!

As you can see, it may be best to go see an endodontist for a root canal. There’s certainly no harm in contacting our clinic to inquire about seeing us!

What is endodontic therapy?

It’s the fancy and professional term for a root canal procedure! The term “endodontic therapy” is appropriate because the procedure really is therapeutic for a tooth, allowing it to survive and thrive for many years to come. In the procedure, the inflamed or infected tissues inside a tooth are removed, and this prevents further complications like the formation of an abscess. The tooth is saved, being nourished by surrounding and healthier tissues. Endodontic therapy is best provided by an endodontist like one of ours over here at Ideal Endodontics.
