Should you visit the Root Canal Specialist or General Dentist for endodontic treatment?


The answer to this question simply depends on how much expertise is needed for the successful treatment of your tooth.

Different teeth can pose different challenges and aspects of treatment that might be fairly routine for an endodontist may be quite difficult for a general dentist.


Success rates!

Specialty training does influence treatment outcome. As an example, Alley (2004) found a success rate of 98% for routine root canal treatment when it was performed by endodontists. This number fell to 90% for cases treated by general practitioners.

Research has shown that treatment provided by endodontists (root canal specialists) has a higher success rate than that provided by general dentists.
