Why have I been referred?


Although your General Dentist may perform some Endodontic (root canal) treatment, patients are often referred to an Endodontist when it has been determined that your case may be complex, or requires the attention of a specialist.  Endodontists are specialists with advanced training and knowledge in this field.  A keen Dentist often identifies potential challenges in advance, and refers to an Endodontist to avoid encountering difficulty, and to give you the best possible outcome.  It is helpful to recognize that you have been referred as a result of your Dentist having your absolute best interest in mind.  Common reasons for referral include: molar teeth or difficult canal anatomy, elusive pain diagnosis, previously root canal treated teeth, fractures, pediatrics, and trauma.  Many Dentists do not perform any Endodontic treatment and refer all patients.  



At Saddleback Valley Endodontics, we work in close partnership with your Dentist to ensure that you receive optimal care.  We serve as an extension of their dental team and maintain close communication and detailed documentation of your care.
