Why Choose an Endodontist
Reason 1: Training
Endodontics is a specialty field in Dentistry that requires at least two years of postgraduate training in an accredited program certified by American Dental Association. The training is extensive and in depth in the biologic sciences, published classic and current literature and the clinical aspects of non-surgical and surgical endodontics. Research has shown that endodontic treatment performed by endodontists has higher long-term success rate compare to the ones performed by general dentists.
Reason 2: Experience
On average, endodontists perform nearly 25 root canal treatments a week, while general dentists perform less than two.
Reason 3: Efficiency
Because they limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and precise. This equates to positive experiences and faster healing.
Reason 4: 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 5: Advanced Technology
Many endodontists use state-of-the-art technology such as operating microscopes, digital imaging, electronic apex locators, 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.
