Most of our patients are referred to us by other dentists in the community as the dentist Bakersfield, CA patients require when undergoing retreatment of previous root canals, but we also accept self-referred new patients presenting dental problems. We accommodate same-day emergencies, and we have extended hours for convenient before-or-after-work appointments. Kern Dental Specialties has treated many prominent dentists, doctors, and their families, so we are considered by many to be the “Dentist’s Endodontists.”
What is an Endodontist?
Endodontists are dental specialists who limit their practice to a branch of dentistry called endodontics, which deals with the soft inner tissue of the teeth, called pulp. Dental pulp contains the nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues of the teeth. When the pulp because traumatized or infected, the skills of an endodontist are often required to bring the patient back to comfort and oral health.
Not only are endodontists like those at Kern Dental Specialties skilled in procedures such as root canal therapy, apicoectomy, and endodontic retreatment; they have extensive training in diagnosis and therapy of endodontics. In addition to dental school, endodontists undergo two or more years of postgraduate specialty training in the endodontics field.
