When you should be referred to an endodontist

Long Island Endodontist Dr. Rybak

This is a right maxillary first molar (tooth #3) that required root canal therapy because decay developed under an old existing crown. This root canal was complicated because of a severe curvature (dilaceration) in multiple canals. Extra care, time, and the use of additional instruments was required to treat this tooth adequately to avoid future symptoms and infection.
