May is Save a Tooth Month. The CU School of Dental Medicine is promoting the American Association of Endodontics’ (AAE) campaign by educating our patients about what endodontists do and why patients may want to see one at our clinic.
The AAE has some helpful information:
What is an endodontist?
Endodontists are highly skilled dental specialists in diagnosing and treating tooth pain and performing root canal treatment.
How do endodontists specialize in saving your teeth?
Along with two to three years of advanced training beyond dental school, endodontists have incredible precision and hand-eye coordination, making them highly skilled in performing complex treatments. They use the most specialized and advanced technology to treat tooth pain and perform root canal treatment. No one is better at saving your natural teeth.
How do I know if I need an endodontist?
If you’re experiencing tooth pain, you have injured your tooth, your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold, and/or there is swelling around the teeth, gums or your face, you should make an appointment to see an endodontist.
CU Dental has an endodontic division. Dentists looking to refer patients to our clinic can do so by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a patient without a referral from a dentist, please visit our screening clinic first and our dentists will help establish your treatment plan.
