How Do Endodontists Differ from Dentists?
The primary difference between a dentist and an endodontist in [GEOID] is in the amount of specialty training these professionals receive. All dentists must complete a degree in dentistry to practice in the U.S. Your endodontist will also have finished two to three years of additional training and study of the structures and anatomical features of the interior of the tooth. This focus on the dental pulp and nerves allows your endodontist to provide superior support for a wide range of complex surgeries and procedures.
What Does an Endodontist in [GEOID] Do?
Most endodontists perform a wide range of general dentistry procedures in addition to their specialized duties. Root canals, trauma restoration services and oral surgery procedures are among the most commonly performed treatments offered by endodontists in the dental industry. These advanced procedures can be performed under general anesthesia or with local numbing and pain relief depending on the preferences of the patient and the extent of the work to be performed.
Why Do Patients Receive Root Canals?
Root canals are complicated procedures that begin with the drilling of a small hole into the affected tooth. Your dentist will then remove any damaged tissue and will allow the infection to drain out of this opening to relieve pressure on the nerve endings in the roots of your tooth. By removing all the tissue and the nerves from the interior of your tooth, your oral surgeon can eliminate the risk of future infections and can protect the outer shell of your tooth. A sealant will then be placed into the root canals and into the inner portion of your tooth to provide structural support and to create an airtight layer of protection for these areas. If needed, a crown will be used to bolster the structural integrity of your tooth when biting and chewing.
What Should I Expect After my Root Canal?
After your visit to a root canal expert in [GEOID], you may experience some temporary swelling or discomfort due to the extent of the surgery. If this swelling increases over time or causes severe pain, please contact our office immediately. These symptoms may indicate a complication that could threaten the long-term health and viability of your tooth.
