Endodontists in North York
Although the outer shell of the teeth does not contain nerves or blood vessels, the tissue inside the root canals does. This is the area of the tooth that is most often responsible for toothaches and pain, and it is known as the “tooth pulp.” Infections and inflammation in the tooth pulp often leads to the need for treatment or intervention by a dentist or endodontist. If you have a toothache, don’t ignore the signs; endodontists can often save your natural tooth, even after an infection has set in!
Dental Specialists You Can Trust with Your Health
Endodontists have specialized training in treating the tooth pulp. In addition to attending dental school, an endodontist will have undertaken 2-3 additional years of training, with a specific focus on endodontic procedures. At Donway Dental, we understand the importance of providing our patients with access to dental experts when necessary. If our general dentists cannot perform a root canal or other endodontic treatment confidently for any reason, we will ensure you have access to high-level care from an endodontist.
Root Canals & More
Root canal therapy is the procedure most commonly performed by endodontists. However, endodontic specialists are often called upon for a range of complex situations involving the interior of the teeth, including rare occasions when root canal treatments are ineffective or infections return after a root canal.
