Who Is An Endodontist

An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in saving teeth. Endodontists become specialists by completing dental school followed by an additional two or more years of advanced training in endodontics. They perform routine as well as difficult and very complex endodontic procedures, including root canal treatment and endodontic surgery.

As a result of their specialty training, endodontists are skilled in finding the cause of oral and facial pain that has been difficult to diagnose. They are also experts at managing and relieving tooth pain, treating traumatic injuries to teeth and performing other procedures including internal bleaching to remove discoloration from teeth, vital pulp therapies and implant placement.
