Endodontics is a more specialized branch of dentistry, and less than three percent of dentists in the US train in Endodontics. The word endodontic comes from the Greek language, where ‘endo’ means ‘inside,’ and ‘-odont’ means ‘tooth.’
Tooth pain can leave you feeling sore and drained and may result in facial swelling or the inability to chew or speak.
Endodontists train for an additional two years and focus on helping people with tooth pain problems. Many times, a diseased tooth that has been giving trouble can be saved with specialized endodontic treatment, usually involving surgery.
Endodontists specialize in finding the cause of oral or facial pain. Our team of endodontists are also experts in administering the right sedation for each patient and treatment.
We will suggest suitable endodontic therapies that can save your tooth and leave you pain-free.
Our expert team of endodontists uses endodontic therapy to treat problems related to the soft inner tissue called tooth pulp. While all dentists are trained to treat dental problems, some issues can be particularly difficult to diagnose and treat.
This is when endodontists come into the picture.
If you’re referred to an endodontist, they will evaluate the tooth in-depth and use detailed procedures to treat the tooth. Our surgical root canal treatments are very successful, and we’re able to help many patients retain their natural teeth.
In general, the endodontist may isolate the infected tooth with a rubber dam (we’re happy to offer non-rubber ones too) and will use a local anesthetic to numb the area. Treatment may require one to three visits depending on the degree of difficulty in treatment and location of the infection or inflammation.
Our qualified endodontists specialize in saving teeth and are experts in treating a wide array of endodontic problems. Feel free to call us, and our trusted endodontists will help diagnose the cause of your tooth pain and suggest treatment options.
