One of the most common procedures a dental professional perform is the root canal, which involves removing the infected pulp from a tooth and sealing it up. Root canal is also known as endodontic treatment, a procedure being performed by a dentist with special expertise.
An endodontist is a dental specialist who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of problems inside of the tooth: the pulp, which is made up of nerves, blood vessels, and soft tissues. The success of root canal treatment is not always guaranteed. However, when the treatment procedures are carried out by a qualified practitioner with a high quality standard, a long-termed success is probable.
Here are some tips in choosing a good practitioner who can assist you with excellent service.
- Check qualifications. The chosen practitioner must have an additional 2 years of specialization before becoming an endodontist.
