Beverly Hills, California area patients who are told by their dentist that they would benefit from endodontic services may be referred to a professional called an endodontist. At the practice of Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry, we are pleased to provide endodontic services. But what is an endodontist, and what services does an endodontist offer?
What is an endodontist?
Our team describes the endodontist as a dental professional who has specialized training and experience in the diagnosing and treatment of problems associated with the dental pulp. The dental pulp is the mass of tissues that are located inside of the tooth. This specialty is recognized by the American Dental Association and requires the dentist to complete two additional years of advanced education and training to earn the title. One of the more common endodontic treatments is that of root canal therapy, though other procedures performed may include:
- Cracked teeth
- Root amputation
- Root canal retreatment
Why might I be referred to an endodontist?
When a deep cavity or trauma occurs to a tooth and impacts the dental pulp inside of it, it can cause a myriad of problems that are beyond the scope of a traditional dentist. In a situation where a patient presents with a problem affecting the dental pulp, a referral is often made to an endodontist in the Beverly Hills, California community or beyond. Our endodontist at Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry is often chosen in the area due to her extensive experience and training in providing endodontic care.
Does my insurance cover endodontic treatment?
Determining insurance benefits starts with a call to your dental insurance company to determine your plan offerings. When patients visit our practice, we encourage them to bring their dental insurance information with them so our front office team can assess benefits and provide an accurate cost estimation for necessary treatments.
