An endodontist, for the uninitiated, specializes in treating conditions that concern dental pulp. Usually, dentists can perform basic endodontic treatments, and when they feel that the patient needs more elaborate and specialized care, they will recommend seeing an endodontist. If you are visiting a Richmond family dentistry clinic, ask if they offer endodontic care. In this post, we are sharing some key signs that you need to see an endodontist.
