Should I See a Dentist or Endodontist for a Root Canal on a Molar?
Family dentists have learned to do root canals in dental school; nevertheless, they may refer patients who need a root canal on a molar to endodontists. Endodontists are root canal experts since they have at least two additional years of advanced training and more experience in performing the procedure on teeth with multiple canals. Their expertise will produce the best possible outcome for you. Our specialist is truly a root canal expert.
What Is Endodontics?
Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the interior of teeth, specifically the soft tissue inside of teeth that can become inflamed or infected due to disease or injury. If you need a practice that specializes in endodontics in Cape Coral, contact our office and we will schedule an appointment for you. Our root canal expert can diagnose and treat your problem quickly, relieving you of your pain and saving your tooth.
What Will Happen at My Appointment with a Root Canal Specialist in Cape Coral?
First, you will fill out paperwork, including a medical history and a list of the medications that you take. If you have not brought a set of x-rays from your general dentist, we will take a set for our endodontist in Cape Coral to review during your examination. You can ask our doctor questions during the exam. If he or she recommends a root canal, you may be able to have the procedure the same day or you can decide to wait.
When you have your root canal, a local anesthesia will be used to numb the tooth and the surrounding gum. You wont feel anything during the procedure. Afterwards, you may be a little sore. However, an OTC pain reliever is generally enough to ease the temporary discomfort. If you need to come back for a second visit to have your root canal, our doctor will prescribe medication to ease your pain if necessary.
After your root canal, our endodontist will put a temporary filling in your tooth. You will go back to your regular dentist in a week or two, who will decide if you need a filling or a crown for a permanent restoration.
How Do I Go About Requesting a Consultation with a Root Canal Expert in Cape Coral?
By choosing to have a root canal procedure, you can save your natural tooth, preserve your ability to speak clearly, and start to smile with confidence. Don’t delay making your appointment.
