Making Smiles Feel Good
Endodontists are specialists in who perform root canal therapy; retreat failed root canal therapy and related infections; diagnose and treat oral and facial pain; save natural teeth and treat injured teeth after trauma; and perform apical surgeries.
Why see an endodontist?
When the soft tissue inside the tooth becomes infected, an endodontist can help repair the tooth. Endodontic dentistry is a dental specialty focusing on repairing the dental pulp. While prosthodontists fix the appearance of a patient’s smile, endodontists help make sure the inside of the tooth is not diseased or inflamed. If the nerves and tissues found inside a tooth are damaged, an endodontist can help save the tooth. While root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures performed by endodontists, their expertise also allows them to treat all types of cracked teeth and dental trauma.
When should I see an endodontist?
An endodontist can help improve the health and functionality of your teeth and restore your smile. You should see an endodontist if you are having tooth pain, tenderness, or believe that you may have infected teeth or if your family dentist has recommended a visit with an endodontic specialist.
