We as endodontists work closely with your general dentist in many ways. Sometimes to give a second opinion or a consultation regarding a specific situation such as:
- Determine whether or not a tooth requires root canal therapy
- Determine the prognosis of a given tooth
- Diagnose the origin of pain and specific treatment
- Diagnose the presence of a crack as well as the severity of the cracked tooth which can determine possible treatment.
** Regardless of whether treatment is rendered we are always in contact with your general dentist after the consultation.
** If treatment is completed we will require you to return to your general dentist. A final report along with X-rays will be sent to your general dentist.
