An Endodontist Specializes in Saving Teeth

March 29, 2024

An endodontist is committed to helping you maintain your natural smile for a lifetime. He (or she) completed at least two extra years of training beyond dental school. All endodontists are dentists, but just 3 percent of dentists are endodontists. Their advanced training, focused techniques and state-of-the-art technologies mean you get the highest quality care with the best possible result: saving your natural teeth.

At the office of Foundation Endodontics, our skilled professionals are experts at diagnosing endodontic issues as well as providing the treatment needed to maintain excellent oral health. Your care and comfort are our top priorities. We take as much time as you need to address your every concern and explain your options in care. An endodontist’s additional education focuses on diagnosing tooth pain and performing root canal therapy and other procedures that relate to the interior of a tooth.

Few people delight in dental work, and some even delay their bi-annual cleanings out of fear or reluctance to visit the dentist. But when it comes to deep tooth pain, it’s important to take care of it as soon as possible. You’ll feel better, and treatment will likely save your tooth. If one of your teeth hurts, is injured a tooth, is sensitive to hot or cold, and/or there’s is swelling around the tooth, its gums or your face, make an appointment with an endodontist. Or, if it makes you feel more comfortable, first see your dentist, who may refer you to an endodontist. 

A diseased tooth can frequently be saved with endodontic treatment. In addition to root canal care, an endodontist handles traumatic dental injuries and places dental implants. Though his goal is to save your natural teeth whenever possible, an endodontist considers all treatment options to determine the best course of action for each patient.

An endodontist limits his practice to endodontic treatments and performs an average of 25 root canal treatments per week. Meanwhile, a general dentist may carry out many fewer than that and limit them to teeth with only one or two roots. Specialized treatment gives you the best outcome, and you’ll heal faster. 

When you need an endodontic practice that provides superior personalized care, look no further than the office of Foundation Endodontics. We offer an extensive menu of high-quality services for patients of all ages. For more information about how we can help you, please contact us today.
