What is an endodontist?
An Endodontist is a dentist with two or more years of advanced training (following dental school) in the scope of endodontics who has received a certificate in this specialty from an advanced education program accredited by the American Dental Association. An endodontic practice is limited solely to endodontic care.
Why Choose an Endodontist
Reason 1: Experience
On average, endodontists perform nearly 25 root canal treatments a week, while general dentists perform less than two.
Reason 2: Efficiency
Because they limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and precise. This equates to positive experiences and faster healing.
Reason 3: Availability
Most endodontists offer tremendous flexibility in accommodating emergency cases, so delays in treatment are kept to a minimum and patients can be relieved of dental pain quickly.
Reason 4: Advanced Technology
Many endodontists use state-of-the-art technology such as operating microscopes, digital imaging, ultrasonic instrumentation and fiber optics, to treat their patients quickly and comfortably.
Today, getting root canal treatment is often no more uncomfortable than having a filling.
