Can a regular dentist do a root canal treatment, or do I need to see a specialist?
Most regular dentists are trained to do root canal treatments. However, some dentists have more experience in this treatment than others and have a better success rate. It is important to ask your dentist about this before you start. An endodontist is a specialist in root canal treatment who only performs this type of treatment. However, having a root canal treatment with an endodontist is often more expensive than a general dentist.
