You may wonder why your dentist has referred you to an endodontist for endodontic treatment. Learn about endodontists, what to expect from an endodontic appointment, and how it can benefit your dental health.
What is an endodontist?
Endo means “inside, within. ” An endodontist is a dental specialist who focuses on treating the inside of teeth, including the pulp. The tooth pulp is the innermost layer of your tooth. It contains nerves, blood vessels, specialized cells, and connective tissues, which helps develop the tooth and gives feeling in the tooth.
Endodontists receive additional training beyond dental school to become experts in diagnosing and treating complex dental issues, such as root canals and dental trauma, such as cracked or broken teeth. We are experts in diagnosing and treating complex dental issues related to the inside of teeth using advanced techniques and technologies to save damaged teeth and prevent the need for extractions. We may also perform surgeries to treat infections or remove damaged tissue.
What should you expect during endodontic treatment?
During your visit to Modern Care Endodontics, you can expect a thorough examination of your teeth by our specialists and a discussion of your symptoms and medical history. Your endodontist may take x-rays or other imaging tests to get a better look at the inside of your teeth. We will recommend a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs based on our findings. If you need a root canal or other procedure, the doctor will use specialized tools and techniques to ensure your comfort and minimize pain or discomfort. They will also provide instructions for aftercare and follow-up appointments to ensure the best possible outcome for your dental health.
Why Endodontic Treatment is Recommended When Tooth Treatment Gets Complicated?
If your dentist refers you to an endodontist, does that mean your dentist did something wrong? The answer is “No.” It means your situation requires specialist care and tools available only to endodontists. We are specialists because we have completed an additional two or more years of training beyond dental school. Our training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain and performing root canal treatment and retreatments. We also train in using advanced dental equipment only available to endodontists.
