Why visit an endodontist?

Just as your medical doctor may refer you to a specialist,  your general dentist can also refer you to an endodontist for a root canal procedure.  Endodontists are dentists specially trained to treat infections and pain related to the root canal system of a tooth.  

Endodontists require at least 2 additional years of post-doctoral education.  This additional training not only produces clinicians proficient in endodontic procedures, but also provides a deeper biological understanding of how to treat and prevent the disease.  With this greater knowledge, endodontists are capable of providing treatment resulting in the best possible outcome for your tooth.

Endodontists detail the positive relationships they have with their referring general practitioners and a general dentist talks about the importance of knowing his limitations. Both practitioners recognize that strong partnerships result in optimal dental patient care.
