Thank you for your interest in Behrents Endodontic Specialists!
We know that going to the dentist is not what most people WANT to do, but visiting one regularly is key in having good oral health. If your dentist told you that you needed to see an endodontist, I’m sure the fear of the unknown would take over. There are several reasons why you may be sent to one:
It could be tooth pain, trauma to the mouth, increased sensitivity to hot or cold or oral/facial swelling. These are just some of the signs of potential dental problems. Many people do not know what endodontic therapy is; let alone what an endodontist does. Endodontic therapy, most commonly known as a root canal, is work done “inside” the tooth. Root canals don’t cause pain, they RELIEVE pain! It helps in keeping your natural teeth for as long as possible, so that your tooth can function without discomfort for the rest of your life.
There are many advantages in keeping your natural teeth including efficient chewing, normal biting force and sensation, natural appearance, and protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain. There could be several reasons why your dentist wants you to come to a specialist including experience, efficiency, availability and advanced technology.
That is exactly what Behrents Endodontic Specialists has to offer, and we like to say that we are here to save lives, one tooth at a time!
