Like many people, you are probably confused about the expertise of endodontists, periodontists, and dentists. For the unversed, endodontists specialize in treatment of soft tissues inside teeth. In other words, endodontists are the dentists who typically handle the root canal treatment, or other treatments that concern the inside of your tooth. Periodontists, on the other hand, are specialized in treating gum diseases. Both endodontists and periodontists are required to get education beyond standard coursework for dentists. If you are seeing an endodontist for the first time, the whole experience can be overwhelming. In this post, we are sharing more on visiting a clinic for endodontics in Providence and things worth knowing.

When to see an endodontist?

Ideally, your regular dentist will recommend an endodontist, if they find that you have infection inside one or many of your teeth. Endodontists, like we mentioned, treat the soft tissues inside the tooth, and therefore, they are experienced in pain management. They will ensure that you feel better immediately, and as needed, they may recommend antibiotics to heal the gums and soft tissues. You can visit an endodontist directly too, if

  You have pain that’s very uncomfortable

  When the origin of tooth pain is not clear

  You believe that previous fillings have been impacted

  You have visible cavities in your molars

  You are feeling sudden sensitivity to hot and cold foods

The first appointment

When you visit an endodontist for the first time, expect the staff to ask a few questions. You may have to fill up a form, where details like history of previous visits, current symptoms, name of referring dentist, and contact information must be filled out. The endodontist will do a routine exam of your teeth to know the possible aspects that need attention, and you may have to respond accordingly to determine the source of your pain. In case a root canal session is required, the endodontist will explain the same, and you may have to visit for multiple appointments.

Does root canal treatment hurt?

As long as an experienced endodontist is working on your tooth, you have no reasons to fear RCT. In fact, you may not feel any pain, as a considerable part of their job involves using a local anesthetic. While root canal treatment can be uncomfortable, your endodontist will ensure that you feel as good as possible. Eventually, endodontists want to save your tooth, and they will take necessary steps to prevent further damage to tooth enamel. Once the root canal treatment is done, the endodontist may either choose to offer restorative treatments like dental crowns or bridges, or may choose to recommend the matter to your family dentist.

Probably you have just moved to NYC, or you have recently purchased a home in the Upper East Side. Among many things that should be on your contact list, a good dental clinic is probably one of the important ones. Thanks to Google, finding an Upper East Side dental office doesn’t have to be hard, but what should you expect about visiting a clinic for the first time? Here is a quick overview that will come in handy.

  1. Check the website first. Most dental clinics in NYC do have a website, and you can find most of the relevant details on their portal. Check if the dental clinic is open to family needs, or in other words, if they offer their services and treatments for adults and kids alike.
  2. See the experience. Once you have booked the appointment, arrive at least 20 minutes before the scheduled time, as some paperwork may be required. Check if the dental clinic assigns a time and how long you have to wait to see the dentist.
  3. Meeting the dentist. Your first meeting with an experienced dentist is important, because you get to know their educational background, expertise, and overall communication skills. No matter whether you are heading for a regular checkup, or a specific dental problem, a good dentist will take interest.
  4. Know the basics. If a dentist has recommended a treatment, ask questions. Find about costs, alternatives, and if the treatment is a must. It is also best to ask about insurance, if the procedure is likely to have any downtime, and other precautions that may be necessary.
  5. Reviews do matter. If you really want to evaluate dental clinics in the Upper East Side, you have to check for reviews. Find more on what other patients may have to say about a clinic.
