An endodontist is a dentist with advanced training in diseased or damaged pulp or soft inner tissues of your teeth. Endodontists spend at least two years after dental school training to become specialists in the techniques and procedures involved in diagnosing and treating dental problems that originate inside your teeth. In practice they only perform endodontic procedures and therefore have extensive experience in this area. They perform routine as well as difficult and very complex endodontic surgery. Endodontists are also experienced at finding the cause of oral and facial pain that has been difficult to diagnose.
Root canal therapy has been reported to be up to 96% successful when treated by an endodontist. Many factors influence the treatment outcome including the patient's general health, bone support around the tooth, strength of the tooth, possible fracture lines, shape and condition of the root and the canals and continued follow-up care with your general dentist. Although we cannot guarantee the successful outcome of root canal procedures, you can be assured that the most advanced techniques and treatment modalities will be performed to ensure the best prognosis possible.
