a dentist who specializes in the treatment of dental pulp and tissues surrounding the dental pulp. An Endodontist often repairs root canals which were poorly done by general dentist, or performs an initial root canal; in addition an apicoectomy(removal of the tip of the root) may be preformed to treat root decay. he/she may also treat cracked teeth..
I went to see the endodontist today. He performed a 3D scan of my tooth where a general dentist did a root canal. Looks like I'm headed for endodontic surgery tonight.
