When the nerve of your tooth becomes infected or inflamed, a successful root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth.
All dentists receive training in endodontic treatment in dental school. However, the need may arise for your dentist to refer you to an endodontic specialist (Endodontist) if the treatment is thought to be complicated or in need of special skills. Usually you will need to see an endodontic specialist in his or her own office and not in your general dentist’s office. Dr. Yedigarian has taken an extra step of making things more convenient for you and has taken additional endodontic courses allowing him to provide you with necessary treatment without having to travel to another office.
