Endodontics

According to the American Board of Endodontists, an endodontist is a dentist specialized in treating diseases and injuries to the dental pulp (nerve), root and surrounding tissues of the teeth. It comes from the Greek words endo meaning “inside” and odont meaning “tooth.”  Surprisingly, less than 3% of dentists go on to become endodontists.  Endodontists receive a "certificate in Endodontics" after two to three years of additional training in an accredited dental program after dental school.   This training focuses on diagnosing tooth pain and performing root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the inside part of the tooth. In many cases, endodontists can save a diseased tooth, which is why many refer themselves as “Specialists in Saving Teeth.”
