When it comes to preserving your teeth and eliminating dental pain, Smile Design Dentistry is proud to offer the services of an endodontic specialist.
An endodontic specialist is a dentist who has an additional two or more years of specialized training beyond dental school and specializes in saving teeth through a variety of procedures that involve the pulp and roots of teeth. A common endodontic procedure is root canal therapy to remove diseased tissue and bacteria from the root canals of teeth that have been compromised by infection or trauma. Cracked teeth, decayed teeth, and teeth that have been traumatized by a blow, often require root canal therapy before the tooth can be restored with a dental crown.
The average endodontist completes 25 root canal treatments per week, compared to general dentists, who do about two root canals a week. Caring for tooth nerves and roots is microscopic work and can be complicated. With our in-office specialist, not only will you receive optimal treatment but also have this treatment coordinated with one of our Smile Design Dentists for speedy restoration of your tooth.
