What does an endodontist do?

This kind of dental professional practices endodontics which is a kind of dentistry focused on treating the soft tissues inside teeth. Sometimes those tissues can become infected or inflamed due to tooth decay, a chip, a crack, or repeated dental procedures on a tooth, and this is when a procedure like a root canal may be necessary. A root canal is one of the common procedures of endodontists, and we offer root canals here at our clinic.

What procedures does an endodontist perform?

An endodontist is able to perform a number of different procedures to fix a smile, save a tooth, or help preserve teeth. Here’s a list of the common procedures an endodontist performs, along with a bit of a description for each:

Root canal therapy – To save a tooth when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of the tooth
Endodontic retreatment – For a tooth that has been treated before but hasn’t healed as expected or has been experiencing a new problem

Apicoectomy – A minor surgical procedure that may be necessary if an infection develops or continues after a root canal

Traumatic dental injury treatment – To reposition, stabilize, replace, repair, etc. a tooth after an injury
An endodontist may be able to provide other procedures and services too. Reach out to our clinic for more on this subject. A general dentist can do some of what an endodontist can do, but not at the same level.

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

While it’s true that any general dentist can do a root canal, it’s also true that an endodontist is more capable. It’s better to see an endodontist for a root canal because one possesses:

Specialization – An endodontist is an expert in root canals and will be more precise and efficient at them.

Greater experience – An endodontist performs, on average, ten times as many root canals every week than a general dentist.

More availability – If necessary, an endodontist may be able to see you on a minor-emergency basis.

Advanced technology training – The endodontist can use state-of-the-art technology for your procedure!

As you can see, there are lots of reasons to see an endodontist over a general dentist for a root canal. You can come to see us here at our clinic!

At Ideal Endodontics, our endodontists are Dr. Moein Darjani DDS, and Dr. Ali Manesh DMD.
