Why See an Endodontist? | Dentist Chatham Chicago

Whether you were referred by our general dentist in 60619 or looking for a second opinion on a recommended treatment, we’re here to help. An endodontist is a dentist with specialized training and experience in performing root canal treatment and preserving natural teeth.

Why is an endodontist different from a general dentist?

An endodontist has two or more years of advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of issues involving your tooth roots and connected tissues. Unlike a general dentist who provides a wide range of services, our office specializes in endodontic treatments exclusively. An endodontist is an expert in root canal therapy, dental trauma, endodontic surgery, and similar treatments.

When should I see an endodontist?

You may want to see an endodontist for a variety of reasons. Some of these include:

  • Being referred by your general dentist for endodontic treatment
  • Wanting a second opinion on a tooth that was recommended for extraction
  • Trauma affecting your tooth root
  • Root canal treatment recommended by your dentist
  • You have a painful and/or infected tooth

Since an endodontic practice is solely focused on endodontic care, the office is equipped with advanced technology for your comfort and high-quality treatment. If you have had dental trauma, are experiencing tooth pain, have been advised to have root canal treatment, or would like to see if a tooth can be saved, contact our dental office in Chatham Chicago, IL.
