Why Choose an Endodontist
Reason 1: Experience
Endodontists are dental specialists with an additional two or more years of specialized training beyond dental school. On average, endodontists perform nearly 25 root canal treatments a week, while general dentists perform less than two.
Reason 2: Efficiency
Because they limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and precise. This equates to positive experiences and faster healing.
Reason 3: Knowledge
As part of their post-doctoral training, endodontists learn in depth the scientific literature related to root canals. This allows them to make evidence-based decisions about your treatment to maximize the chance of saving your tooth. Drs. Kano, Campese, Tra, Melki or Yana will explain the available options so you can make an informed decision.
Reason 4: Advanced Technology
Because they limit their practice to endodontic treatment, endodontists are usually equipped with the advanced technologies and specific tools required for endodontic treatments. It is not common for a general dental office to acquire such highly specialized equipment; it would seldom be used, since endodontics is not usually such an office’s main practice.
Today, getting root canal treatment is often no more uncomfortable than having a filling.
