Why Choose an Endodontist

Reason 1: Experience

Endodontists complete an additional 2-3 years of schooling after graduation from dental school with focus on just root canals and endodontic procedures. On average, endodontists perform nearly 25 root canal treatments a week, while general dentists perform less than two.

Reason 2: Efficiency

Because they limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and precise. This equates to positive experiences with quicker treatment times and faster healing.

Reason 3: Availability

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.

Reason 4: Advanced Technology

Many endodontists use state-of-the-art technology such as cone beam computed tomography, operating microscopes, digital imaging, ultrasonic instrumentation, and fiber optics to treat their patients quickly and comfortably.

Today, getting root canal treatment is often no more uncomfortable than having a filling.
