Why Choose an Endodontist?

Your general dentist is qualified to diagnose and treat a wide range of oral health concerns. But sometimes a dental specialist can provide a better outcome for more complicated issues with your teeth.

Endodontists specialize in the soft tissue, or dental pulp, of your teeth. This pulp helps your teeth grow and develop when you are young. When your teeth are fully grown, they can stay healthy in the absence of pulp, but not when it’s infected or inflamed. Without proper treatment, you could lose your tooth.

If you’re looking for a specialist who can save your natural teeth, you should choose an endodontist. Here is an overview of what you can expect with Root Canal Specialists of Baton Rouge.


Becoming an endodontist involves several years of schooling. Endodontists have completed their bachelor’s degree, four years of a dental school program, and then an additional two or more years of specialized training to receive a certification in endodontics.

Endodontists perform routine as well as difficult and very complex endodontic procedures, including endodontic surgery. Endodontists are also experienced in finding the cause of oral and facial pain that has been difficult to diagnose.


“Endo” is the Greek word for “inside” and “odent” is the Greek word for “tooth.”  Endodontists are experts at treating the inside of teeth. 

Inside the hard, white enamel that shows when you smile is soft tissue, called dental pulp, that is made up of blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that extend through canals deep into the roots of your teeth. 

If this pulp becomes infected and endangers the health of your tooth, endodontists have the knowledge necessary to remove the diseased pulp and restore your tooth.
