Root Canal Dentist
General dentists also do root canal procedures! There are specialists who only focus on root canals, but general dentists also perform them. Depending on the type of root canal your dentist is dealing with, he or she will either complete the root canal at the office or, in more difficult cases, refer you to a specialist. Dr. Kezian does numerous root canals at his office and can even perform a root canal if it is needed as an emergency!
General dentists usually focus on seeing adults, but many dentists also work with children. Check with your general dentist if he or she does pediatric dentistry. Dr. Kezian has many patients that visit the office with the family. This means he might be doing a filling on one of the parents in one room and doing a sealant on a child in another room. It is important to know if your general dentist is well experienced in working with children, so call and ask your dentist to find out more information.
