Professional Endodontists is celebrating National Root Canal Awareness Week to get the word out about ensuring patients get the highest quality dental care possible.



Join Professional Endodontics and the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) in celebrating Root Canal Awareness week this year from March 22-28. Each year during this week, endodontists from around the world reach out to share information about root canal treatments and healthy dental habits to educate people about this important topic.

Take the Stress Out of Root Canal Treatments

For most people, the thought of having dental work done can be stressful. In fact, according to a recent AAE survey, 56% of participants claimed that root canal treatments make them nervous. The good news is that root canal treatments play an important role in keeping teeth healthy and can be done in a way that is painless and easy. Professional endodontists are experts in their field and provide the highest level of care and expertise when it comes to treating a root canal and keeping teeth healthy and pain free.

Why visit an Endodontist for your Root Canal Treatment?

By visiting a professional endodontist for root canal treatments, patients can have peace of mind that they are receiving the highest-quality care, compassion, and comfort for their specific dental needs.   Endodontists play an important collaborative role in your dental team and can provide unique expertise to support a general dentist in managing and caring for a patient’s overall dental health.

As members of a growing field, endodontists have played an integral role in caring for patient’s dental health in recent years. The AAE estimates that nearly 22.3 million endodontic procedures were performed annually in 2006 and over 25% of those were completed by endodontists. Of these procedures, 15.1 million were root canal treatments and 28% of those were completed by an endodontist. This means there is still a significant opportunity for endodontists to support general dentistry practices by performing root canal treatments.

How can you ensure you receive the best care?

To ensure you receive the best quality dental care, you should speak with your dentist about obtaining a referral for an endodontist when you require a root canal treatment. Your dentist can provide contact information and a referral for a specialist so you can make an appointment to be treated as soon as possible. In many cases, your dentist will work directly with the endodontist to ensure continuity of care among all members of your dental care team.
