What is the difference between a dentist and an Endodontist?

Teeth have 3 layers, namely: enamel, dentine, and pulp. A dentist primarily treats dental diseases related to the enamel and dentine layers and refers patients to an endodontist (root canal specialist) when a problem reaches the pulp and nerves.

Advanced Technology

Our Endodontists use state-of-the-art technology, such as digital imaging, microscopes, rotary, ultrasonic instrumentation, and fiber optics to treat patients quickly and comfortably.

Why would I need a root canal treatment?

An infection in the pulp of the tooth is normally caused by advanced decay or a deep cavity preparation that is in close proximity to the pulp. A root canal treatment is usually performed to save the tooth, remove all infections caused by the decay, and keep your smile intact. Our Endodontist also gets involved with re-treatment of the root canal if needed or a surgical procedure at the tip of the root. An injury may also cause a tooth pulp to become necrotic, which may require a root canal treatment to save the tooth.

How is a root canal procedure performed?

Our most common referral to our endodontists is for a root canal treatment. The procedure involves:

  • Cleaning of the infected pulp area.
  • Cleaning and shaping the root canal.
  • Relieving pain.
  • Medicating the root canals and stabilizing the infection.
  • Filling the root canals.

The tooth will be lifeless but still functional. A crown will also be required to protect the non-vital tooth.
