Frequently Asked Questions

An endodontist is a professional who is highly trained in treating tooth problems that are complex, with specific focus on issues that affect the inside of the teeth, which is known as tooth pulp. To treat any dental pulp and root problems, they use a range of advanced techniques which will relive toothache. The main purpose is to save the patient’s natural tooth. An endodontist is often referred to as a root canal dentist, and they specialise in various treatments and dental surgeries, such as: Endodontic retreatment, Endodontic surgery, Emergency dental surgery, Tooth extraction, Dental implant surgery
While endodontics primarily focuses on root problems, periodontics specialises in gum health. An endodontist and a periodontist are similar in the sense that they possess the skills and qualifications that a general dentist has. However, a periodontist trains in periodontal disease, focusing on treatments related to the gums. The general gum treatments that a periodontist performs include: Implants, Laser treatments, Regenerative procedures, Lengthen crowns
As mentioned, an endodontist treats problems that occur within the pulp of our teeth, which is the root. This means that if a patient requires root canal surgery, they will need the specialist knowledge and techniques of an endodontist. Alternatively, an oral surgeon deals with problems that affect the mouth, jaw, and the face, which means that if a patient requires reconstructive dental work, an oral surgeon will handle it. For example, they specialise in the following: Reconstructive surgery, Tooth extraction, Jaw realignment, Fractured cheekbones Essentially, any problems that emanate from the root will be taken care of by an endodontist, while any issues that go beyond the tooth will be treated by an oral surgeon.
Hygienists carry out standard cleaning, but if patients require a deep clean below the gum line, then they will need the expertise of a periodontist as opposed to an endodontist. Patients will also require this level of deep cleaning if they have gum disease or bone issues.
An endodontist is trained to treat root and pulp issues, so when it comes to gum surgery, there are other dental professionals that are more suited for this type of work. These professionals are known as periodontists, who treat various gum conditions and diseases, including periodontitis or gingivitis. Gingivitis is a disease that forms generally due to plaque, build-up of tartar, and inadequate oral hygiene. The disease causes swelling, bleeding, and redness of the gums, and if this condition worsens, it can develop into periodontitis, which can affect the health of bones and destroy tissues. Gum surgery is often required to correct these issues, but it is important to note that there are different types of gum procedures, and they all depend on the severity of the patient’s condition. The types of gum surgery include: Bone grafting, Flap surgery, Tissue grafting, Guided tissue regeneration
