Why Choose an Endodontist? | Peoria & Galesburg IL
Reason 1: Advanced Education
Endodontists are dental specialists with specialized training beyond dental school. Drs. Benjamin and Fabian were each ranked # 1 in their dental school class. They were selected to attend a prestigious 3 year residency at the renown University of Texas Health Science Center. An endodontic residency allows a practitioner to learn every facet of providing exceptional care.
Reason 2: Experience
On average, endodontists perform nearly 25 root canal treatments a week, while general dentists perform less than two. In fact Dr. Benjamin and Dr. Fabian have performed over 10,000 root canals each! They truly have mastered the art of providing exceptional root canal therapy.
Reason 3: Efficiency
Because they limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, endodontists are efficient and precise. We have all heard horror stories of root canals taking 2, 3, or 4 + hours. We stay with you during the treatment, don’t bounce around from room to room, and make sure it is done quickly, painlessly, and most importantly well. This equates to positive experiences and faster healing.
Reason 4: Availability
Most endodontists offer tremendous flexibility in accommodating emergency cases, so delays in treatment are kept to a minimum and patients can be relieved of dental pain quickly. We have relationships established with great referring offices; if an excellent referring office asks us to see an emergency patient, we usually see them the same day or very next day.
Reason 5: Advanced Technology
We use state-of-the-art technology such as operating microscopes with high definition cameras, digital imaging, electronic apex locators, and ultrasonic instrumentation and fiber optics to treat patients quickly and comfortably. For more information, see our Advanced Technology.
Today, getting root canal treatment is often no more uncomfortable than having a filling.
