Specializing in Saving Teeth
An endodontist is a dentist who has specialized in treating and handling dental problems that involve the nerve tissue and blood vessels inside the tooth. If the tooth pulp, which contains nerves, vessels, lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue, becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is required to save it.
After completing four years of dental school, endodontists complete an extra two or more years of specialty postgraduate training through a hospital or university-based program accredited by the American Dental Association.
With the lengthy education that an endodontist receives, he or she is able to perform all aspects of endodontic therapy, including:
- Diagnosis and treatment of dental pain
- Routine and complex root canals
- Endodontic surgery
- Treatment of traumatic dental injuries
- Treatment of cracked teeth
Endodontists use state-of-the-art technology, such as digital imaging, operating microscopes, ultrasonic instrumentation, and fiber optics, while performing endodontic treatment. Technology, along with specialized techniques, gives endodontists an accurate view of the tooth and allows them to treat it quickly and comfortably.
By choosing to receive treatment by an endodontist, you have decided to keep your natural teeth as a healthy foundation for chewing and biting for years to come.
Thank you so much for taking such great care of me! My tooth feels great! You all were just wonderful. Your office is beautiful. Your staff is efficient and pleasant. Now I know why all our patients return to our office raving about the excellent care they received in your office. Thanks again! Another happy patient!
Thank you for making me smile again. I put off having a root canal done as I was too scared! Well, the procedure was easier than having a cavity filled and I can now chew on that side again! Thanks for everything.
I just want to tell you, thank you for being so patient with me the other day. I walked into your office quite scared and nervous; however, you reassured me that everything would be okay. Thank you so much. I am pain-free and it feels great.
