Being Referred To A Specialist
Patients are referred to Elevation Endodontics for complex cases.
The difference between Dr. McKissock and a general dentist is additional years of training and study in the field of dentistry. Your general dentist may identify challenging elements of your case and refer you to Elevation Endodontics in order to ensure the best possible outcome. The most common reasons for a patient to be referred to Elevation Endodontics include molar teeth or difficult canal anatomy, an elusive pain diagnosis, problems in teeth that have already had root canal treatment, fractures, pediatrics, and trauma to a tooth. Many dentists refer any patient who needs endodontic treatment to Dr. McKissock, and it may be helpful to recognize that general dentists make these referrals with the best interest of their patients in mind.
