Yes, legally all general dentists are qualified to do root canals. But, IMO not as qualified as an endodontist who has gone through 2-3 years of additional training in the specialty and does ONLY root canals all day rather than once/week.
I would only let an endodontist do my root canal and similarly (but more serious) I would only let a heart surgeon do my bypass surgery.
== == All Dentists are qualified to do root canals.
A patient would be referred to an endodontist if the patient needed a root canal procedure. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in root canal procedures.
A root canal requires one or more office visits and can be performed by a dentist or endodontist. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in the causes, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries of the human dental pulp or the nerve of the tooth.
Root canal treatment may be performed by a general dentist or by an endodontist, a dentist who specializes in endodontic (literally "inside of the tooth") procedures.
Endodontist It's an endodontist.
Root canal surgery is done by an endodontist.
A dentist can with an x-ray. Also, ask to see an endodontist, a root canal specialist, who can perform a couple of quick tests to check the vitality in the nerves of your tooth.
Someone who specializes in root canal work is called an endodontist.
Rarely, however there are times when a tooth does have to be re-treated. I would see your dentist/endodontist who treated the tooth.
To find a good endodontist, it's best to consult your dentist and he or she can refer you.
Of course!!! They won't work on root canal if they're are not trained for it. Some dentist have assistance from a person that doesn't know much about root canal, but only to help the actual peraon doing the root canal.
It's necessary to have endodontic or root canal treatment when the inside of your tooth (the pulp) becomes inflamed or infected as a result of deep decay, repeated dental procedures, faulty crowns or a crack or chip in the tooth.
Endodontists are specialized dentist, There area of work is focused on disease, damage to and repair of dental pulp. One of the most common procedures that involve Endodontists are root canal therapies, such as when cavities have penetrated crowns and infected/destroyed the underlying root tissues.
i worked for an endodontist(root canal dentist) IT WILL ABCESS!! talk about being in pain and lots of sweeling. the nerves wont just die. please get it pulled before it does abcess and dont wait until it hurts so bad that you cant stand it.
that is a root canal of a molar tooth. Meaning the dentist is removing the nerve and pulp of the tooth.
There are many reasons your jaw could hurt that do not require a root canal. The only way you can know if you need a root canal is to be examined by a dentist.
Call the dentist that did your root canal or any current dentist. When the nerve dies the tooth turns grey. Then the tooth has to be pulled. Depending on where your 'root canal' is, you may need a bridge or implant. This was my experience. Cost would depend on the dentist fee and insurance consideration. Blessings.
Go back to the dentist.
cavity, drill, root canal, oops
Yes, my dentist told me today I might need to go back for a root canal.

An endodontist is responsible for treating and evaluating nerves, tissue, and pulp surrounding the teeth. Endodontists often treat infected root canal, and develops treatments for those suffering from dental issues.
Yes, a buildup is contraindicted immediately after a Root Canal Treatment. Primarily you want to make sure that root canal treatment is asymptomatic before placing any permanent restorations on the tooth. If the dentist or endodontist needs to re-enter the tooth bec. the root canal continues to give problems (pain, formation of abscess) it would be easier to remove the temporary filling. Should leave the temp. filling for 2 weeks and then if asymptomatic then do composite Buildup.
The first dentist screwed up if the procedure has to be repeated on the same tooth. Talk to the dentist and if necessary, a lawyer. Not true. The Long-Term success rate for initial root canal treatment will vary from 80-95%. (Any dental or medical procedure is not 100% predictable in the long-term, eg dental implants). In the 5-20% of teeth where root canal treatment is unsuccessful, retreatment may be needed. It does NOT necessarily mean that the dentist "screwed up" Retreatment involves drilling another hole in the tooth or crown, removing all the old filling material, cleaning, disinfecting, and placing a new root canal filling. Almost all dentists will refer you to an Endodontist for retreatment cases.
