Why Choose an Endodontist?
On average, endodontists perform nearly 25 root canal treatments a week, while general dentists perform less than two.
Because they limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and precise. This generally equates to positive experiences and faster healing.
Most endodontists offer services that may not be available in an general dental practice such as post removal, re-treatment of a previous root canal and root end surgery.
Most endodontists offer tremendous flexibility in accommodating emergency cases, so delays in treatment are kept to a minimum and patients can be relieved of dental pain quickly.
Many endodontists use state-of-the-art technology such as operating microscopes, digital imaging, ultrasonic instrumentation and 3-D imaging, to treat their patients quickly and comfortably.
Today, getting root canal treatment is often no more uncomfortable than having a filling.
