Endodontic treatment includes the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the dental pulp, nerves and tissues that surround the root of a tooth.

Why See an Endodontist instead of a General Dentist?

When you are seen by a specialist endodontist you can be assured that they are experienced in managing difficult root canal treatments, re-treatment of previously unsuccessful root canals and endodontic surgery.

Endodontists are specialists in diagnosing and treating the pain caused by toothaches, damaged or diseased teeth. They hold a degree in general dentistry as well as a postgraduate degree in endodontics. The latter involves a further three to four years of advanced education specific to endodontics.

While some general dentists can perform root canal therapy, additional specialist training and experience go a long way towards increasing the likelihood of treatment success in this field.


Root Canal Therapy vs Tooth Replacement


An experienced, highly trained endodontist can often save a tooth that may have been otherwise deemed too difficult to treat or to have a poor prognosis. These specialists often collaborate with prosthodontists in cases where a tooth can be restored through the use of crowns, veneers, bridges, implants or dentures, and with oral maxillofacial surgeons and periodontists in cases where the tooth cannot be saved.
