How An Endodontist Can Save Your Tooth
There are a lot of different ways that endodontists can save your tooth and protect your oral health. Here are just a few of them.
- Root canal therapy – Endodontists specialize in root canal therapy and related treatments to eliminate infections, kill bacteria, and restore your tooth. Whether you have an infected tooth due to a large cavity or an oral injury, an endodontist at ONE ENDO can eliminate the infection, relieve your pain, and restore your tooth.
- Dental crowns – A dental crown is usually necessary to restore a tooth after a root canal or another endodontic treatment. Crowns look and feel just like natural teeth, and they cover up the vulnerable tooth structure to keep it intact. A high-quality dental crown will protect the tooth and keep it intact for years to come.
- Tooth splinting – Tooth splinting is the most common way to treat a very loose or knocked-out tooth after a traumatic dental injury. The loose or knocked- out tooth is cleaned and placed back into the proper position. Then, it’s splinted in place for about 2-4 weeks to allow it to heal.
What Is The Difference Between A Dentist And An Endodontist?
All endodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are endodontists! Similarly to any other type of doctor, dentists can specialize in a specific type of treatment after going to dental school if they choose to do so, and endodontics is one of these specialties.
Endodontics is a field of dentistry that specializes in the study and treatment of “dental pulp,” which is the tissue inside your tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels and keeps your tooth alive.
Becoming an endodontist typically requires at least 2 years of post-graduate training in an accredited endodontic program. During this time, endodontic students get additional training on treating tooth pain, root canal therapy, and a wide variety of other procedures involving the inside of the tooth.
