Quick InquiryBook an Appointment

 

There are different kinds of dental issues and you must choose the right dentist for a specific problem. Everyone deserves the best treatment dentistry can offer and making engaged decisions is an integral part of this process. Our guide will help you understand various dental specialties and pick the right dentist for the job.

Prosthodontics

A prosthodontist has three additional years of postdoctoral training in dentistry, gaining advanced skills in both cosmetic and restorative procedures. They focus on treatment of patients with complex cosmetic and restorative needs. For patients who need crowns, implants, root canal treatment, and gum surgery, a prosthodontist will act both as the restorative dentist and the coordinator of the overall treatment.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral surgeons receive 4–6 years of post-doctoral training in accredited residency programs. They receive hospital-based training in oral and facial surgical procedures and anesthesia, in addition to extensive medical training to care for the patients. Most are board certified as necessary for obtaining hospital privileges.

An oral surgeon will help you:
– Extracting teeth
– Dental implant placement
– Minor and major bone grafting procedures to create site for implants
– Oral biopsies

Endodontics

Endodontists are root canal treatment specialists. They receive 2–3 years of post-graduate training on treatment of conditions affecting teeth’s root canal system. They have advanced surgical and non-surgical skills that make them uniquely qualified to treat routine as well as complex cases. The root canal contains the blood supply and nerve tissue vital to a healthy tooth.

An endodontist will offer great help if you have the following needs:

  • Saving a non-vital or irreversibly inflamed tooth and avoid extraction
  • Root canal treatment for teeth that exhibit temperature sensitivity or pain due to decay or trauma
  • Teeth with abscess due to necrotic root or other types of pathology (such as cysts) compromising its health
