When facing the possibility of dental loss, it’s important to explore all your options to ensure you find the solution that’s best for you. If you’re suffering from significant tooth decay or damage, can your tooth be saved? A specialist called an endodontist may be able to help.

Faced with Dental Loss?

Being faced with the possibility of dental loss is more common than most people think. Many things can lead to tooth decay or damage, but thanks to modern dentistry it’s more possible than ever to save a tooth that is suffering from significant damage.

If you’ve been told that a tooth needs to be removed, it’s a good idea to talk with an endodontist for a second opinion. Endodontists have been nicknamed the “superheroes of dentistry” because of their unique ability to save teeth that would otherwise be lost.

What’s Special about an Endodontist?

Endodontists are dental specialists who undergo years of extra training and study to focus on the treatment of the innermost parts of a tooth. This means that when the innermost parts of your tooth, such as the pulp or root of the tooth, become damaged, an endodontist has the specialty skills to give your tooth the best possible chance.

Endodontists also cater their dental office specifically for the specialist treatment they provide, which means that they have the most advanced technology and tools available for saving your tooth.

While regular dentists might deal with a few cases a week of significant tooth decay or damage, an endodontist deals with several times that amount. When you’re at risk of losing a tooth, experience matters.
