While 63% of Americans would like to avoid getting a root canal, even more, 69%, want to avoid losing a permanent tooth, according to a recent survey by the American Association of Endodontists. During Root Canal Awareness Week, March 25-31, the AAE wants to dispel myths surrounding root canal treatment and encourage general dentists to involve endodontists in case assessment and treatment planning to save patients’ natural teeth. Endodontists’ mix of advanced training, techniques, and magnification technology maximize the potential for a comfortable patient experience and successful treatment outcome.

The AAE video, Endodontists, Partners in Patient Care, features general dentists discussing the positive relationships they share with their endodontist colleagues.
