CHICAGO, May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A new video released today bythe American Association of Endodontists helps patients understand how the advanced training, specialized techniques and superior technologies used by endodontists help save teeth. Endodontists are dental specialists who perform root canal treatment
"If a patient is told that a tooth should be extracted, they should seek a second opinion from an endodontist, who may be able to save the tooth through root canal treatment," said AAE President Dr. Garry Myers. "No tooth replacement will look, feel or function as well as a natural tooth."
The AAE celebrates Root Canal Awareness Week to educate the public about modern root canal treatment and endodontists as the specialists in saving teeth. Endodontists:
"All endodontists are dentists, but less than three percent of dentists are endodontists," said Dr. Myers. "While your general dentist is like a family doctor, great for regular cleanings, check-ups and general oral health, if you need root canal treatment, you should see an endodontist, who has specialized training to become an expert in performing root canal treatment and diagnosing and treating tooth pain."
