What type of dentist does root canals?
If you need a root canal, your general dentist may refer you to an endodontist, which is a dentist that specializes in treating the soft tissue inside the teeth. Many Kool Smiles offices have endodontists working at the same location as your general dentist, making getting the dental care you need more convenient than ever.
Do I have to go to a special kind of dentist to get my wisdom teeth out?
Your dentist might be able to remove your wisdom teeth in office. But if your wisdom teeth are hidden beneath the gum, your dentist might recommend you see an oral surgeon who can remove the teeth without injuring the surrounding nerves and blood vessels. At most Kool Smiles offices, we remove wisdom teeth, so you don’t have to worry about traveling to another office for the procedure.
What type of dentist specializes in problems related to gum health?
Periodontists are dental specialists that have additional years of training in treating patients with diseases, injuries, or other problems related to gum health. Periodontists usually treat patients with more severe forms of gum disease, and also perform cosmetic gum surgeries.
