Saving Teeth

An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in root canal treatment, the process of removing inflamed or infected pulp tissue from a tooth.  

After completing four years of dental school, endodontists complete an additional two or more years of postgraduate training, then complete a specialty board examination process. 

With the lengthy education that an endodontist receives, they are able to perform all aspects of endodontic therapy, including:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of dental pain
  • Routine and complex root canals
  • Retreatments
  • Endodontic surgery
  • Treatment of traumatic dental injuries
  • Treatment of cracked teeth
  • Internal bleaching
  • Vital pulp therapies

Endodontists use state-of-the-art technology, including operating microscopes, digital radiography, 3-dimensional (CT) imaging, and ultrasonic instrumentation to provide the highest possible level of endodontic treatment. The technology and specialized techniques offered by an endodontist help patients to maintain their natural teeth for as long as possible.
