Many people are familiar with their dental office, but they have no idea when they need to see an endodontist. An endodontist is a dentist who is specialized in the treatment and care for the root of the tooth. There are special occasions where you will need to see an endodontist to properly care for you, but just what are those occasions?

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU NEED TO SEE AN ENDODONTIST

Some people need to see an endodontist after a severe injury to a tooth due to an accident involving that tooth. Some accidents are so severe that they can injure the root of a tooth. While an endodontist can certainly help in this situation, it is far more common for them to operate on a tooth that is severely infected with a large cavity that has reached the root of the tooth.

HOW CAN YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE SUCH A SEVERE INFECTION?

Typically pain is the best indicator that you have an infection. When you first start to feel pain while you chew food or drink hot or cold beverages, you should see your dentist so that you can catch an infection before it reaches severe levels. Once an infection has reached severe levels and has reached the root of your tooth, it is then necessary to see an endodontist.

ROOT CANALS RELIEVE PAIN

Contrary to popular belief a root canal procedure relieves pain associated with a severe infection. Anyone who has had a root canal procedure done to their tooth understands that the pain was present prior to the procedure. An endodontist wants to help you solve your problem with the severe pain and can do that utilizing a root canal procedure.
