Root Canal Treatment a Favorite Procedure, Dentists Say

Root Canal Treatment a Favorite Procedure, Dentists SayIt is estimated that almost 60 million root canal treatments are performed each year and that number continues to climb as aging baby boomers work to save their teeth.

Root canals might be something dental patients dread, but it’s a dental procedure a lot of dentists seem to love doing.

With the demand for root canals growing, The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey that asked dentists if they treat root canals, or refer them out.

On dentist replied, “I love doing root canal treatments. It’s most pleasing to me personally. It keeps me motivated and challenged.”

Not all dentists are so eager to perform root canals and prefer to refer them out to an endodontist for treatment.

    Where did you obtain your data of 60 million estimated root canals per year?

    Lee, I believe you may have been the person asked me this the last time and I sited this stat, and I gave a link to the report by Tom McGuire, D.D.S., who received his B.S. at San Francisco State University and his D.D.S. at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry, San Francisco. He is President of The Dental Wellness Institute, Founder of the International Association of Mercury Free Dentists (IAMFD), and a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). Dr. McGuire has been an innovator and leader in preventive dental education for over 30 years…. or maybe that was a Laura I told this too.  I’ll post the link again if you would like to see it.  Thanks for your comment. 🙂

    Dear Cath ~ this is my first time to your site, so it wasn’t me who asked before.  🙂  I would like the link to his study.  I ask because the 60 million figure is distinctly different than the FDA figure of 16 million root canals per year (including those performed by both endodontists and dentists).  Many thanks!
