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.
Learn Why Dental Microscopes are so Important
A microscope can be an invaluable resource to the endodontist performing your root canal. As a matter of fact, root canal specialists often use microscopes to find and treat all of the canals inside the tooth.
The root canal procedure takes place in a very small area of the tooth and requires expert precision to effectively navigate the roots and canals. Some teeth may have more roots and canals than expected — missed canals can mean unresolved infections, which may eventually require another endodontic procedure, or even removal of the tooth.
The use of advanced microscopy technology by a trained root canal specialist can help make your root canal treatment successful, allowing you to keep your natural tooth for a lifetime!
