What is an Endodontist?

What is an Endodontist?

  • Endodontists employ a range of endodontic procedures to save natural teeth, including performing root canals (the most common endodontic procedure), repairing cracked teeth and replacing avulsed teeth (teeth knocked out by injury).
  • Endodontists are dentists with additional specialized training in diagnosing and treating oral and facial pain, and problems associated with the inside of the tooth. Click here to view Dr. Grau's biography.
  • When performed by an endodontist, root canal therapy can relieve pain and save the tooth.
  • Most root canals can be completed by endodontist in a single visit.
  • An Endodontists and your general dentist work together to provide you with quality dental care.
  • Endodontists accept emergency cases and referrals.
  • Endodontists provide immediate treatment for patients.
  • If prior root canal therapy is failing, an endodontist can provide retreatment.
  • Root canals performed by endodontists provide a patient's dentist with a solid foundation for crowns and other restorative work.
  • If your dentist says you need a root canal, ask for a referral to a root canal specialist - an endodontist.    Click here for a referral form and map to our office.
