Each year, over 22.3 million endodontic procedures are performed in the United States. In the period between 1999 and 2006, these treatments increased by 10 percent, with this upward trend continuing past that point. Right now, 68 percent of all endodontic procedures are performed by general dentists, while 26 percent are handled by endodontists. This is a shocking statistic considering the importance of these treatments and the purpose they serve. —
An endodontist is a root canal specialist , which means they have the custom training and equipment needed to ensure these procedures are done properly and reduce the potential for adverse consequences. To help raise awareness of services provided by endodontists, Charleston Endodontics has recently launched a new website offering information and resources regarding the treatment solutions provided.
“When you utilize our endodontic treatment, you can feel confident that your teeth will remain functional for years down the road,” stated company representative Gina Parks. “We know how to provide the needed root canal or other treatment to ensure it heals properly and that additional issues don’t arise.”
Endodontic treatment includes root canal therapy, repair for cracked teeth, treatment for traumatic injuries and children and apicoectomy services. Having specialized services provide this treatment reduces the risk of needing retreatment in the future and helps reduce issues related to pain and side effects from the provided treatment.
“Right now, we offer our endodontic treatment services in four locations in South Carolina,” continued Parks. “Two of our offices are located in Charleston, with two more in Summerville. We hope or new website will explain some of the treatments we offer and why using our services is often the better option.”
With over 14 million root canal treatments performed annually, it is essential that consumers have information at their disposal to make decisions regarding who they receive service from. This reduces the potential of issues and ensures the patient fully understands the treatment they need.
