An endodontist is a specialist at saving infected, inflamed, or diseased teeth. Endodontists know how to diagnose tooth pain using state-of-the-art technology and are experienced in root canal treatment and other helpful procedures.
If you’re experiencing tooth pain, you can choose to visit an endodontist to get the best answers and treatment. In many cases, your general dentist may refer you to an endodontist to make sure you receive the highest quality care available.
There’s a reason endodontists are called specialists. All Endodontists are Dentists. However, less than 3% of dentists are Endodontists. Just like a doctor working in any other field, Endodontists like Dr. Dholakiya are specialists because they’ve completed an additional two or three more years of coursework and training beyond dental school.
This additional training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain, being able to perform root canal treatment and various other procedures treating the interior of the tooth. A diseased tooth can often be treated and saved with endodontic treatment. Dr. Dholakiya is a specialist when it comes to saving teeth.
Beyond the additional diagnosing and treatment capabilities you can’t get at a dentist’s office, there are other advantages to seeing an endodontist:
