If you have serious tooth pain, the specialist you are most likely to want to see is an Endodontist. An endodontist can often help you save a tooth by making it unnecessary to pull it. Endodontists in Guatemala are highly trained specialist and yet their services are affordable.

Endodontists are dentists who specialize in endodontic treatments, commonly known as root canals or root canal therapy. Endodontists have a deep understanding of the internal parts of the tooth, particularly the pulp, root and nerve.

Root canal treatments are done to save an infected tooth that would otherwise be lost. During a root canal, the nerve tissue is removed from the root of a tooth with a series of small files. The root is then sterilized and sealed.

When a tooth starts to ache, it might mean that an infection has reached the end of the root of the tooth and is threatening to expand into other teeth. You should have a dentist look at the tooth as soon as possible.

Since this evaluation can’t be done visually, x-rays are needed. X-rays will help the Endodontist see what is happening inside the tooth. X-rays not only determine if a root canal is the best course of action, but will also reveal the best way to perform the procedure or detect any possible complications, such as an irregular root form.

Since root canals often require a significant loss of dental material, the restoration of the tooth, usually with a ceramic or zirconia crown, is an important part of the procedure. You and your Endodontist will discuss various options and he or she will be able to help you make a good choice for your unique circumstances and budget.
