An endodontist is a dentist who has completed all the requirements to earn a doctoral degree in dentistry. Additionally, endodontists must complete endodontic training that can range from two to three years or longer.
The only way to know for sure is to be examined by a dentist or endodontist. However it is important to contact your general dentist or Dr. Bishop right away if you experience a severe toothache especially when it is accompanied by sensitivity to changes in temperature. Even if you do not need a root canal, the situation needs to be addressed.
When a tooth is infected, the blood supply (pulp) running through the tooth is affected as well. As a result, there is no way to conduct the antibiotics to the needed area. They do however, assist in controlling and eliminating infection in the surrounding bone before and after root canal therapy.
Call us right away. If you are still experiencing significant discomfort that is limiting your ability to chew foods or otherwise impeding your day to day activities, there may be something else wrong.
