Getting to the “root of the problem” isn't just a very clever pun that we use as often as we can. It's very descriptive of what endodontists do. Its advanced technology and continuous learning are in the quest to save teeth. Even teeth that are severely decayed or sick can be saved.
With a little luck and a lot of advanced inspection, technology and knowledge, an endodontist can determine the best chance of saving the tooth. To become an endodontist, a qualified candidate must first complete a bachelor's degree, then finish dental school, and finally complete specialized endodontic training through residency, before appearing before the Board of the American Association of Endodontists for certification of the board. Once you've become a board-certified endodontist, there are several career path options to explore. Some of these include working in a private dental office, as a member of a group dental office, working in hospitals and dental clinics, or in academia as instructors.
Understanding an Endodontist's Career Path These statistics indicate how well received endodontists are within the dental community. Like most medical professionals, the career path to becoming an endodontist is quite simple to follow. The most popular career option for an endodontist is to begin their career as a specialist within a full dental office. Finally, after accumulating in-office experience, an endodontist may choose to open their own specialized office that offers endodontic treatments through referrals from a network of standard orthodontists and associated dentists.
It seems that many dentists don't like or don't like root canal treatment and I can fully understand that. It requires a lot of patience, an eye for detail and staying calm when things don't go as well as you'd like. Having done nothing but endodontics for a little more than 20 years, I think I would now be forced to try doing any other form of dentistry.
