Root Canal Treatment -KnoxvilleTN
Why Choose an Endodontist?***
Endodontists are dentists with at least two additional years of advanced specialty education in endodontic diagnosis and root canal treatment.
Because they specialize in saving teeth utilizing root canal treatment,endodontists treat these types of problems every day. They use their special training and experience in treating difficult cases, such as teeth with narrow or blocked canals, unusual anatomy or retreatments.
Endodontists may use advanced technology, such as operating microscopes, ultrasonics, digital imaging and 3-D radiography to perform these special services.
Root canal treatment is one of the most commonly performed dental procedures with well over 14 million teeth treated every year. This simple procedure can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.
On average, endodontists perform approximately 25 root canal treatments each week whereas a general dentist performs fewer than 2 per week.
89% of patients are satisfied after root canal treatment by an endodontist.
Most people have strong, negative feelings about losing their teeth.

Root Canal Surgery -KnoxvilleTN
Endodontic (root canal) surgery – also called “apico” or “apicoectomy” – can be used to locate root end fractures or hidden canals that do not appear on x-rays but still manifest pain in the tooth. Damaged root surfaces or chronic problems in thesurrounding bone may also be treated with this procedure. The most common surgery used to save damaged teeth is an apicoectomy or root-end resection.
