As an endodontist, he focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of severe oral pain, thus improving the quality of life of a patient significantly. He is a medical specialist who takes care of the interior of teeth, which mainly involves root canal treatment and surgery. He also performs several other tasks which are related to internal tooth care, including treating dental pulp, repairing teeth and others.
Thanks to the use of modern techniques, combined with effective anesthesia, patients who are experiencing root canals are more likely to experience a painless procedure. An endodontist performs this procedure to make sure that the tooth is restored, typically using a crown, or filling it for protection, thus continuing to function just like any other tooth.
