Why Choose An Endodontist?

If you are experiencing tooth pain, you can choose to see an endodontist. While all endodontists are dentists, less than three percent of dentists are endodontists. Just like a doctor in any other field, endodontists are specialists because they’ve completed an additional two or more years of training beyond dental school. Their additional training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain and performing root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the interior of the tooth. The average endodontist completes 25 root canals a week, while general dentists do about 2 root canals a week. Since endodontists limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and precise. This equates to more positive experiences and better healing.
