What is an Endodontist?

Endodontists specialize in treating issues concerning the roots and pulp of teeth. To be an endodontist, one needs to complete an additional two or more years of training beyond dental school. This additional training focuses on diagnosing and treating diseased teeth and managing dental pain quickly and efficiently.

What Procedures Does an Endodontist Perform?

An endodontist performs various surgeries, including root canal therapy, apicoectomy, and endodontic retreatment. Our endodontist, Dr. Anderson, also addresses traumatic dental injuries whenever they arise and is available to schedule emergency appointments when necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our compassionate team is always happy to answer your questions and make every procedure clear. Some of the questions our patients always ask include:

Can a Tooth with a Root Canal Get Infected Again?

If you have a tooth that has already received a root canal treatment but then develops further problems, you might need a root canal retreatment. Dr. Anderson will examine your tooth to decide if retreatment is necessary, then he will discuss your treatment options with you.

If you knock out a tooth, our endodontist may be able to put it back in place. It is essential to realize that time plays an important role in such cases. We recommend you see the endodontist immediately after the tooth gets dislodged to increase the likelihood of successful replacement.

If you suspect you have an infection in the pulp of your tooth, it’s best to visit our endodontist as soon as possible. Some signs that may indicate you may need a root canal include:

  • You have a protrusion or a small pimple on the gum near the base of an aching tooth
  • You experience lingering pain every time you bite down on the problem tooth
  • You experience sensitivity when drinking hot or cold drinks
  • You have a painful, pulsing pressure at the base of the aching tooth
