Endodontists save teeth through the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of pulpal and periapical disease. They specialize in treating the most challenging teeth, severe infections, or hypersensitivity. Extraction is not the only option if a previously root canal treated tooth becomes a problem. Endodontists have extensive experience at saving teeth through retreatment or microsurgery.
They are also experts at treating traumatized teeth, determining if a tooth is fractured, and finding the source of unusual pain in the mouth. Recent developments now allow them to employ vital pulp therapy techniques to help infected immature teeth continue to develop.
