Have you ever heard the term “endodontist” and felt confused? Don’t worry. We’ll explain exactly what an endodontist does in our endodontic Q/A.
What is an Endodontist?
An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating dental pulp. If you have an infected or injured tooth, an endodontist can help save it.
What Type of Procedures do Endodontists Perform?
At Smile Workshop, our San Antonio endodontists perform a variety of dental treatments on our patients. One of the most common procedures they do is a root canal.
A root canal is performed when the pulp of a tooth gets infected. In order to solve the problem, an endodontist must go in, thoroughly clean and seal the tooth. Endodontists can also help you with the side effects from dental injuries.
How Long Does an Endodontist Go to School?
In order to become certified in endodontics, an endodontist must attend an additional two to three years of post-graduate training after finishing dental school.
Which Endodontist Should I go to?
Smile Workshop highly recommends that you come to our office in San Antonio. We’re located at the corner of Lone Star Parkway and Culebra Road.
