Most of the common concerns that bring patients to their dentists can be resolved entirely by a Dr. Jackson, right here in our office. Examples include oral exams, cleanings, and fillings. Complex conditions such as damage or decay call for special training. These more complicated problems are where Dr. Jackson has a lot of training and experience. Still, there are situations where a patients needs to be referred to an endodontist.
What is an Endodontist?
Endodontists are dental specialists who diagnose severe underlying tooth pain and handle unusual tooth anatomy, manage calcified canals, and carry out advanced tool procedures. They comprise just 2 percent of dental professionals in the United States and could be the last person you will see after visiting a general practitioner.
Here are a couple of things you should know about these specialists.
Advanced Dental Education
An endodontist completes two to three years of education in an advanced program of endodontics after graduating from dental school. They study diseases of the pulp and how best to treat them.
Dental Pain Management
Since they use specialized techniques, these professionals have to ensure their patients are comfortable enough to undergo full treatments.
Advanced Dental Technologies
Expert endodontists use cutting-edge equipment and materials designed to make the treatment both comfortable and successful. To get a clear picture of tooth anatomy or root canals, they use 3-D imaging.
Finding an Endodontist
Dr. Jackson can help with most endodontic issues right in our office. However, if he can’t, you can rest assured that he will refer you to an endodontist in Springville that is highly qualified.
What can I expect when I see an Endodontist?
You can expect the following when you see our endodontist in Springville:
- Comprehensive and precise diagnosis of the root problem causing pain. Cavities aren’t the only cause of toothaches. To get to the underlying problem, they have to carry out a thorough examination of your jaw, something that calls for specialized equipment.
- The best chance of rescuing the distressed tooth – sometimes, dentists don’t want to carry out extractions. A single removal can trigger oral health problems and set the stage for other issues or further tooth loss.
- Extensive restoration options (where a tooth loss is inevitable). Endodontists can use crowns, implants, and bridges, and implants where there’s zero hope of rescuing a tooth. Since they know how to administer them, they’re the right professionals to carry out such specialized treatments and procedures.
