Why Do I Need to See an Endodontist?

What is an Endodontist?

An endodontist is a specialist who, beyond general dentistry training, has received additional education to become a specialist in the field of endodontics. Endodontic therapy includes procedures that involve the soft, inner tissues of the tooth, called the pulp. Endodontists are experts at not just treating an infected, painful tooth but also at actually saving teeth from being lost to trauma or infection. Procedures commonly performed by our endodontist and Dr. Tuong Nguyen Nguyen, are:

  • Root Canals
  • Endodontic Retreatment
  • Laser Endodontics
  • Apicoectomy

Dr. Borromeo Shares His Thoughts

I’ve been practicing for twenty-six years and I’ve been referring to Dr. Nguyen for about fifteen years. I refer my patients to Dr. Nguyen because of these three things. First is their experience; The experience that they have with his technology and what he does. There is also that enjoyment factor where he’s got that personality where he keeps you at ease. The last thing would be the education because he educates my patient and he tells them what to do when he’s done with the treatment.
