What is an Endodontist?
An endodontist is a specialized dentist who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of issues relating to the interior of the tooth. The Greek words “endo” (inside) and “odont” (tooth) make up the word endodontist. Endodontists are trained to diagnose and treat diseases and injuries of the dental pulp, which is the soft tissue in the center of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels.
Endodontists are trained to perform a range of treatments, including root canals, root amputations, and apicoectomies. Endodontists also specialize in endodontic surgery and related procedures, such as apicoectomy, endodontic regeneration, and retrograde fillings.
What to Expect During Your Visit to an Endodontist
When you visit an endodontist, you can expect them to take a thorough medical history and perform a comprehensive oral examination. The endodontist will look for signs of infection, such as a discolored tooth or swollen gums. They may also take digital X-rays to get a better view of the inside of the tooth.
Once the endodontist has a diagnosis, they will discuss your treatment options. Depending on the severity of the condition, the endodontist may recommend a root canal or other endodontic treatment. The endodontist will discuss the pros and cons of each treatment option and help you decide which one is best for you.
Root Canal Treatment at Long Island Endodontics
At Long Island Endodontics, we specialize in endodontic care, including root canal treatment. Root canal therapy is a common procedure that is used to treat a severely infected or damaged tooth. During a root canal, the endodontist will remove the infected or damaged pulp from the center of the tooth and clean and seal the inside of the tooth.
We understand that visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience. That’s why Long Island Endodontics offers sedation dentistry options to help make your visit more comfortable. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) as well as oral sedation to help you relax during your procedure.
