What is an Endodontist and what do they do?
An Endodontist is a dentist who specializes for an additional 2 years after dental school in performing root canals and endodontic surgery. The goal of endodontic treatment is to save and maintain the patient’s natural teeth. Endodontists study root canal techniques and procedures in greater depth than a general dentist, for diagnosis and treatment of more difficult cases. For this reason, many dentists choose to refer. their patients to endodontists.
