Endodontists are dental specialists who have experience treating tooth pain by determining the root cause and recommending corrective action. They are experts in treating diseases related to dental pulp like root canal, and soft tissue injury. For any of those issues, your Endodontist may recommend a personalized solution involving retreatment or dental surgery. Another solution would be to extract the tooth completely, which is usually not advised unless you are having acute pain.

What Is An Endodontist Vs Dentist?

Endodontists specialize in dental pulp and nerves of teeth. Although they have a dental degree which family dentists also have, endodontists complete at least two additional years of specialized training, post-doctoral. Endodontists often perform therapies and treatments, such as root canal therapy.

What Procedures Does An Endodontist Perform?

Endodontists have specialized experience. The most common endodontic procedure is the root canal, which is necessary when the soft tissues inside his teeth are inflamed or diseased. The endodontist examines the X-ray of the tooth, then administers local anesthetic. Once the tooth is numb, the endodontist fixes a small protective sheet called a “dental dam” over the area to isolate the tooth and keep it clean and free of saliva during the procedure.

How Does An Endodontist Do A Root Canal?

Root canal treatment is often a simple procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. During the root canal an endodontist specializing in such treatment carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shape the root canal, and places a filler to seal the space.
