Why Should You Visit An Endodontist?

Posted on 6/6/2022 by Dr. Ahmed Matri
Why Should You Visit An Endodontist?People are often so used to visiting a general dentist that the notion of needing or going to an endodontist never crosses their minds. However, there may be instances when you may be recommended a visit to a professional who focuses on endodontics.

Below are some common conditions and situations when it's better to visit an endodontist than a general dentist.

3 Reasons to Visit An Endodontist

#1: Severe Tooth Decay or Cavity

A general dentist can indeed repair moderate tooth decay or cavities by clearing out the affected tooth and filling it in with a sealer. However, for massive cavities, a filling isn't enough to protect your tooth. In such as case, the Oak Endodontics & Implant Dentistry recommends you to visit an endodontist – a dentist having sufficient knowledge and training to conduct a root canal. With timely intervention, an endodontic can salvage the tooth by removing and fixing the cavity.

#2: Abscessed Tooth

If you experience an abscessed tooth – due to infection, pockets of pus arise in a different area of the tooth – Ahmed Matri, DDS at Oak Endodontics & Implant Dentistry highly advise you to visit a competent endodontist. Why? People suffering from such infections are at serious risk for complications, and if not appropriately dealt may even result in death.

#3: Identification Of Mysterious Pain

In scenarios when a general dentist cannot unearth the cause of a toothache or complain, the best thing you can do is visit an endodontist. A competent endodontist might locate the issues that the general care provider missed.
