What Does an Endodontist Do?
Endodontists are specialized dentists that focus on the roots of teeth and repairs to root tissues. Our dentists will likely recommend a root canal procedure to save the natural tooth if you have an abscessed tooth or an infected root. The endodontist will then examine and diagnose the problem tooth and recommend the best procedure possible to end your tooth pain and strengthen your tooth.
When Do I Need a Root Canal?
The primary sign of a root canal is unavoidable pain in your tooth and gums. Usually, a root canal procedure is required after a tooth has been affected by cavities or infection. Root infections can also result from an injury or trauma to the mouth. Whichever the reason, a root canal procedure may be performed in-house by the general dentist or by an endodontist if the case is more complex.
