Endodontist

Endodontist

Endodontists are dentists who specialise in treating teeth where the pulp (nerve) has become damaged by decay or trauma.

What is an Endodontist?

By cleaning and preserving the pulp chamber and roots the tooth can remain functional, preserving the patient’s appearance and bite.

Although all dentists are trained to treat and diagnose simple diseases of the pulp, patients are referred to an Endodontist when the case is more complicated to ensure the best predictable result are achieved.

Endodontist specialists have 2-3 years additional post-graduate training and more experience than general dentists.

Our endodontic specialist, Dr. Daiva, has advanced equipment that general dentists may not use. Seeing a specialist Endodontist provides the best chance of saving your tooth.

Because Endodontists limit their practice solely to endodontic treatment, Endodontists are efficient and precise. This equates to a more predictable outcome, a positive pain-free experience and faster healing.

Using state-of-the-art technology and an operating microscopes, digital imaging, CBCT scan, ultrasonic and Ni-Ti rotary instrumentation allows Dr Daiva to treat her patients quickly and comfortably.

The microscope used during treatment enables the treatment to be carried out with a high degree of accuracy. A further advantage is that high magnification allows Endodontists to treat the small internal anatomy of teeth without taking away too much tooth structure, or causing additional damage.

Evidence-based studies show that Endodontists achieve greater successes due to their experience, expertise and equipment.

Many patients are worried about Root Canal Treatment but today, getting root canal treatment is no more uncomfortable than having a filling. Dr Daiva is an expert at ensuring you feel comfortable throughout your treatment.

Why do I need Root Canal Treatment?

You will need root canal treatment if the soft tissue at the centre of your tooth (known as pulp) has become infected or damaged. This can happen through a number of reasons, but generally happens when there’s been a breach in the hard structure of the tooth by decay or trauma which allows bacteria to enter and infect the vulnerable pulp.

The symptoms of an infected tooth can vary, but the signs to be aware of are:

  • Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold (particularly hot)
  • Spontaneous pain
  • Sleep disturbance because of the pain
  • Swelling of the gum adjacent to the tooth
  • Pain or tenderness when you bite on a tooth
  • Discolouration of the tooth

If you suspect that you have an infected tooth, book an appointment with your dentist. We can carry out x-rays to ascertain if the pulp has become inflamed. If you need root canal treatment to alleviate the symptoms, we will arrange an appointment with Dr Daiva.

I'm afraid of Dentists, but coming back here regularly during more the 5 years... Thanks to Dr. Ilze and Dr. Daiva :)
Been a patient at Smilepod for 10 years or so. They’ve been kind, gentle and caring through routine and emergency dental care. Would thoroughly recommend.
Booked and attended a hygienist appointment and what can I say! You get more than what you paid for! After seeing all the good review for Rodrigo, I booked in an appointment with him. The cleaning was extremely detailed and thorough and the result is amazing! Rodrigo is very patient and cleaned my teeth very carefully, there were minimal discomfort compared to many other dentist/hygienist I have ever used. Highly recommend Rodrigo if you are going for a clean up!
Magatha did an amazing job...Seeing an hygienist for somebody who likes coffee, red wine and cigarettes always leads to the same result.. a few stains between the front teeth will not go away and you leave the dentist with the same feeling of a mission not accomplished...Magatha took her time and scrupulous attitude to make sure " no stain will be left unturned" and the result is simply amazing... thank you!!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your positive review!Your satisfaction is our greatest reward, and we are delighted that you left our clinic with a smile.

I had a great experience with Dr. Hygino, who restored my broken tooth. The procedure was quick, painless, and the result was outstanding! I'm very happy with my new tooth.
Dr Debora did an awesome job with my braces. She's really good at what she does and she's also really nice. My smile looks amazing now, thanks to her. If you need braces, I totally recommend Dr Debora
I had an accident and chipped two of my front teeth. Dr. Gino saw me on the same day and repaired my teeth for me. He did such an amazing job. I can't even tell the difference is so perfect. All my friends were impressed. Thank you so much Dr. Gino and Smilepod for being able to treat me on the same day of my accident and bringing it back my smile. Top class service. I couldn't recommend you guys more!!
SO MUCH better than my usual NHS service. I chose smile pod because they were close to my office and had lots of appointments available outside my work hours. I am so glad I tried them as my teeth look amazing! Jasmin was so relaxing and friendly. Multiple tools used to clean my teeth with so much attention to the detail, my teeth look and feel amazing and I can’t stop smiling for real! ‘Classic clean’ - Natasja (I’ll be back real soon) xx
