What is an Endodontist?

An Endodontist is a dental specialist who has completed two or three additional years of advanced endodontic training and education beyond dental school. This additional training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain as well as performing root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the dental pulp (interior of the tooth). In many cases, a diseased tooth can be saved with endodontic treatment. For this reason, endodontists proudly refer to themselves as Specialists in Saving Teeth.
