The average dental patient may not fully understand the role of an endodontist, or when it’s necessary to see one. At Advanced Endodontics of Westchester, we have an expert team of specialized endodontists who are all striving to help you fulfill your dental goals. We want to help you understand the important role an endodontist can play in your overall oral health and well-being. In its most basic form, an endodontist is a dentist who specializes in saving your teeth through various procedures (including the use of laser endodontics) that involve the pulp (nerve) and root. They typically have at least two extra years of training and education than a dentist, and target their practice specifically towards advanced dental procedures.

Specialized Endodontist Procedures

Since most endodontists (including the team at Advanced Endodontics of Westchester) limit their practice to advanced or specialized dental procedures, they are usually much more precise and efficient. As an experienced endodontist in White Plains, NY, Dr. Justin Kolnick has seen hundreds of patients with a wide range of dental concerns, including:

  • Root Canal Treatment

If you notice persistent tooth pain, perhaps accompanied by decay or cracks, then you might be in need of a root canal to save the tooth. Dr. Kolnick can effectively remove the infection in the pulp and reseal the tooth with a restoration.

  • Microsurgery

Tooth pain may be caused by microscopic cracks in your tooth that can be healed through an apicoectomy to save the damaged teeth.

  • Specialized Treatments for Tooth Pain

While the most common form of tooth pain is usually an infected tooth (which can often be healed through root canal therapy), there are other reasons your tooth may be experiencing discomfort. Dr. Kolnick and the team at Advanced Endodontics of Westchester can help find and treat the problem.
