Just like a doctor in any other field, endodontists are specialists because they’ve completed an additional two or more years of training beyond dental school. They all have additional training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain and root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the interior of the tooth. Often times a diseased tooth can be saved with endodontic treatment. For this reason, endodontists proudly refer to themselves as Specialists in Saving Teeth.

How Are Endodontists Different?
- To become specialists, endodontists have two to three years of additional education in an advanced specialty program in endodontics after completing four years of dental school. They focus on studying diseases of the dental pulp and how to treat them.
Endodontists Are Experts in Pain Management
- Endodontists use specialized techniques to ensure patients are comfortable during their treatments. They are experts in administering numbing medications, especially in patients who traditionally have problems getting and staying numb. In addition to treating you comfortably, patients will be relieved of tooth pain after their root canal procedure when the pulp infection or inflammation heals.
