Endodontists specialize in saving teeth whose nerves and/or pulps have become inflamed and infected due to decay, cracks or injury. They have advanced training over and above dental school, with specialized techniques to perform procedures relating to the interior of teeth, such as root canals, surgeries and dental implants. 

An endodontist will often work with other types of dental professionals to develop customized treatment options for individual cases.

These are some indications that you may require care from an endodontist: 

  • Severe tooth pain when chewing or applying pressure.
