Endodontists are dentists with three additional years of advanced specialty education in diagnosis and root canal treatment. Because their practice in limited to endodontics, they treat these types of problems every day. They use their special training and experience in treating difficult cases, such as teeth with narrow or blocked canals, or unusual anatomy. Endodontists use advanced technology, such as operating microscopes, ultrasonics and digital imaging to perform these special services. Your dentist has referred you to an endodontist because he or she understands that you will benefit from the specialized training and experience that a root canal specialist can offer. We will work with you and your dentist to hold on to your natural dentition.
