Endodontists - Johnson County West



Endodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the tooth pulp and tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. The pulp can become diseased or injured and thus is unable to repair itself. The pulp then dies and endodontic treatment is required.

Endodontists are dentists who have specialized in this field. Typically they have completed an additional 2-3 years of training following dental school. They specialize and limit their practice to root canal therapy and root canal surgery, and use their special training and experience in treating difficult cases. Endodontists may use advanced technology, such as operating microscopes, ultrasonics and digital imaging, to perform these special services, and often have great experience in successfully treating patient who present in pain. Patients requiring root canal therapy are either referred by their general dentists to the endodontist or are self referred. Root canal therapy is also a standard procedure for general dentists.
