About Endodontics

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is an Endodontist and what do they do?

Endodontists are dentists who are experts in maintaining teeth by way of endodontic therapy, procedures, which involve the soft inner tissue of the teeth, known as the pulp.

Endodontists get two or more years of advanced education in this type of treatment. They study root canal methods and procedures in greater detail, for diagnosis and treatment of harder cases. Because of this, most dentists opt to refer their patients to endodontists.

What takes place during endodontic treatment? (What’s a Root Canal?)
  • A local anesthetic will be offered. A sheet of latex known as the "rubber dam” will be positioned around the tooth to separate it, thus keeping it dry and clean during treatment. The treatment includes 3 to 4 simple steps; however, the number of visits is determined by your specific case. Some treatments require two visits but most are only one visit. Sometimes three appointments are required.
  • In any case, this will depend on the level of inflammation/infection and level of treatment difficulty. Here are the basic steps for nonsurgical endodontic therapy.
  • There are, obviously no guarantees. Endodontic therapy or root canal has an extremely high level of success, approximately 90 percent. Teeth that can be treated close to perfect have a success rate up to 90 percent. If an endodontic therapy or root canal fails, you still have alternatives.

A diagnosis treats pain

is frequently hard to identify. Due to the vast network of nerves in the mouth, the pain of a diseased or damaged tooth often is felt in another tooth and/or in the ear, head, or neck. An endodontist is a professional in diagnosing and treating this kind of pain.

Treats traumatic injuries

Pulp damage at times associated with a blow to the mouth and the endodontist focuses primarily on treating these traumatic injuries. For instance, a blow to a child's permanent tooth, which isn't entirely developed, may result in the root to stop growing. A procedure known as apexification stimulates bone to be deposited at the end of the root making it possible to then save the tooth by way of a root canal procedure. An endodontist is particularly trained in procedures for replanting teeth, which have knocked out of their sockets.

Do I need to return to the dentist’s office for extra visits?

Once endodontic therapy is finished your tooth must be assessed routinely, often every six to 12 months. This lets the endodontist ensure the tooth has healed or is healing the right way.


Sometimes, a tooth, which has gone through endodontic, treatment fails to heal or pain persists in spite of therapy. Though rare, occasionally a tooth at first response to root canal therapy; however, gets painful or diseased months or years afterward. When either of these situations takes place, the tooth usually may be maintained with a second endodontic treatment.
