The Unique Advantages of Seeing an Endodontist
Posted on July 22, 2016 by Kochevar Endo
Selecting a quality dentist with references from family, friends, and professional resources is a strategic move you should and must make. Dentist are essential for teeth cleanings, fillings, and a variety of dental procedures. They are very necessary.
We, on the other hand, are experts in endodontic treatments, treating root canals, traumatic injuries, and surgical endodontics. Here are some valuable advantages to seeing an endodontist for these types of issues.
Advanced Education and Training
In addition to dental school, endodontists receive an additional two years of specialized training. This allows them to provide top-level care, provide expert diagnosis, and perform procedures with full, trusted confidence. All endodontists are dentist, but only three percent of dentists are endodontists. When you select an endodontist, you’re choosing a well-rounded dentist, expert in root canal procedures and surgical endodontics.
Dr. Kochevar uses advanced technical tools to help him diagnose and treat infected roots and for other endodontic procedures. With advanced tools and years of experience, you can be sure you’re getting quality work done as efficiently as possible and with great care.
If the only thing stopping you from coming in off the street is a worry about whether or not your insurance covers an endodontic specialist, think again. Most dental coverage covers specialists, but every insurance plan is different. We encourage you to reach out to us so we can call your insurance company to see what’s covered. Not covered by your insurance? We can also work with you to create a payment plan based on your needs.
We have relationships with dentists in the area who refer their patients to us. Remember, you still have the power to choose the specialist you want to see. You aren’t confined to the specialist your dentist recommends. If you find us off the street, come on in and we’ll resolve any of your concerns.
The difference between a diagnosis that works, and a diagnosis backed by confidence, is technology. Kochevar Endodontics uses the latest technology, including digital radiographs and surgical microscopes for more immediate diagnosis and more efficient care. Here’s the advantage to having both:
A digital radiograph is a form of X-ray imaging, where images are captured using digital technology instead of traditional photographic film. This means a more efficient image process without having to deal with more laborious procedures. This saves us time, and gets you a diagnosis quicker.
The surgical microscope in dentistry, especially in endodontics, is critical to accurate procedures. Dr. Kochevar carries countless hours of procedural work with advanced microscope technology into every treatment. Because we only offer endodontics, you can be confident that you will receive the best possible treatment, with the latest technology, leading to better treatment and faster healing.
