An endodontist is a specialist in the area of soft tissue inside the tooth called the pulp, which carries the tooth’s nerves, veins, arteries, and lymph vessels. Endodontists, who perform root canals, receive advanced education after graduating from dental school and typically only deal with endodontic-related problems.

A common misconception is that a root canal is a painful procedure. Actually, root canals are similar to having a cavity filled, producing minimal pain.

Common causes for the need of endodontic treatment:

  • Inflamed/infected tooth pulp
  • Severe sensitivity to hot and cold elements
  • Deep tooth decay
  • Chipped or broken tooth
  • Blow to the tooth/trauma
  • Swelling or tenderness near the infected tooth
  • Repeated dental procedures on a tooth

Please contact our office for an evaluation if you experience any of the symptoms above, and we will refer you to an endodontic specialist.
