For Patients
You may have been told that you need either root canal treatment (endodontic treatment) or re-treatment.

If so, then you may well be referred to an endodontist, (a specialist in root canal treatment) by your general dentist, or perhaps you will decide to consult an endodontist independently.

Endodontics in a nutshell

Root canal treatment involves removing damaged or dead nerves and blood vessels in the tooth root that have become infected due to decay, cracks or trauma. The space left is then filled with a material that seals the tooth and keeps it functioning as before. Re-treatment involves the removal of existing root filling material, re-cleaning the canals and placing new filling material.

Specialist advice and treatment
Although endodontic treatment is carried out by many general dentists, there may be situations where a more predictable result may be achieved by a dental specialist, who has training to a higher level, more experience and equipment that general dentists may not use.

The complexity of endodontic treatment can range from those cases that are completely straightforward to those that will challenge the specialist, especially in re-treatment cases. It is not always easy to predict which category a particular case may fall into. Similarly diagnosis and case assessment may also be difficult.

Many general dentists do not use equipment such as an operating microscope (see About the Technology) and Cone Beam CT scanning equipment (see Cone Beam CT Scanner) which make diagnosis and treatment more predictable.
