Types of Dentists – What is an Endodontist?
Endodontists are typically associated with root canals. Endodontists have at least two years of specialty training focused on working with dental pulp and surrounding tissue. They perform complicated dental root canals — removing unhealthy pulp from the bottom of a tooth then filling and sealing the hole. Root canals allow patients to keep the tooth alive and therefore save teeth that would have otherwise been removed.
If you’re experiencing severe tooth pain, have injured a tooth or there’s swelling around your teeth or gums a General Dentist may refer you to an Endodontist since they’re experts at diagnosing the root cause of tooth pain and performing complicated procedures relating to the inside of your teeth.
