Choosing the Right Endodontist for Your Root Canal
Make the Right Choice!

Finding the right Root Canal Specialist for you.

So, you’ve just been informed by your dentist that you need a root canal treatment to save your infected or deceased tooth. Bummer! But hey, look at the bright side… at least there’s hope to keep that tooth for life! Now your dentist may refer you to an endodontist they know, or, you might choose to seek out a qualified endodontist on your own. If this is the case, there are several things that it might be helpful to keep in mind and consider during your search:

  1. Experience and education

    Try to look for an endodontist with years of experience in their field. In addition to this, it’s good to make sure that the endodontist is involved with continuing education so that you know they’re up-to-date on the latest techniques in the field of endodontics. You’re trusting them with your precious tooth… so they should really know what they’re doing!
  2. Equipment

    Our Scarborough endodontist’s office is equipped with only the latest in endodontic materials and technology. The world of endodontics is constantly evolving, and you want to make sure your root canal procedure is performed by a professional using the most efficient and modern tools for a successful outcome.
  3. Personality

    Productive and positive communication between an endodontist and their patient is key. He or she should be accommodating, friendly and kind… and you should definitely feel comfortable around them! They should be willing to work with you and answer any questions you may have along the way.
  4. Location

    Hopefully there are a lot of wonderful endodontists in your area… but if you have to travel an extra 10 or 15 minutes to meet with a professional who seems suitable for you, then we say it’s definitely worth it.
