Patients who are in need of root canals, apicoectomies, and endodontic retreatment will typically need to be referred to an endodontist through their dentist.

However, referring dentists in Ellicott City trust Access Endodontics to provide quality care to their patients.

When Are Dental Referrals Necessary?
For many dental services, no referrals to specialists are needed. Cleanings, exams, X-rays, and simple procedures like cavity fillings can be done in-office by your dentist. However, some oral health issues require care from a dental specialist like an endodontist or orthodontist.
Some of the situations that require specialist services can include:
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Cracked, broken, or dislodged teeth
- Root canals
- Crowded or misaligned teeth
Your general dentist might refer all endodontic treatments to an endodontist, or they might only refer out more complicated procedures. Complicated tooth anatomy can be another reason to visit an endodontist for certain services.
Insurance can also be a factor in whether a patient needs a referral. Before visiting an endodontist, find out if your insurance will require you to have a referral from your general dentist.
If you’re experiencing tooth pain, reach out to your dentist right away. They’ll be able to quickly assess the issue and connect you with a dental specialist like an endodontist if needed.
Do You Need a Referral to See an Endodontist?
It’s likely that you wouldn’t reach out to an endodontist as your first step if you’re experiencing tooth pain or other dental issues. You don’t always need a referral to see an endodontist, but talking to your dentist first can help you rule out other solvable in-office treatments.
Visiting your dentist for a referral to an endodontist ensures your treated by someone your dentist trusts. Your dentist knows the other dental specialists nearby and can connect you with an endodontist that they have worked with before.
For the best endodontic services in Ellicott City, you should talk to your dentist about a referral to Access Endodontics.
