We choose to provide you with optimal care from a registered specialist endodontist when it comes to all your complex endodontic needs.
What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the dental pulp or inside the tooth. Endodontic treatment is commonly referred to as " root canal treatment". This procedure is only done as the last resort to save the tooth and relieve pain and infection.
Why See an Endodontist instead of a General Dentist?
When it comes to your complex endodontic needs, such as root canal treatment, we choose to provide you with optimal care from our general dentists and resident endodontic specialists.
Endodontists are specialists in diagnosing and treating pain caused by toothaches, damaged or diseased teeth. They have a degree in general dentistry as well as a post-graduate diploma in endodontics. The latter includes another three to four years of advanced training specifically in endodontics.
While some general dentists can also perform root canal therapy, additional specialised training and experience greatly increase the likelihood of treatment success in this area.
