Why Choose an Endodontist? root canals are All we do.

Dentistry is becoming more complex every day making it virtually impossible for any one doctor to master all of its various disciplines.  That is why there are specialists.  If you have an eye problem, you see an eye doctor, a heart problem, you see a cardiologist.  Just as in medicine, dentistry has specialists that invest in additional training to develop expertise in specific areas of dentistry.  As Endodontists, we are trained in performing both surgical and non-surgical root canal treatment so that to prevent unnecessary or premature tooth loss.  The tooth, when injured or diseased, can be very unforgiving.  A seemingly minor problem, if not treated appropriately and in a timely manner, can have its consequences.  One’s dental health is very important to overall health.  Without the possibility for endodontic care, imagine how your life would be.  Dentures and implants are no substitute for your natural, healthy tooth.  It’s that simple.  That’s what state-of-the-art care is all about.

Reason 1: Experience

On average, Drs Coury and Douthitt perform over 40 endodontic treatments a week, while general dentists typically perform many less.  At Amarillo Endodontics, our doctors have over 50 years of combined experience and have performed over 50,000 procedures.  You can be confident knowing that you will receive the highest quality care available anywhere.

Reason 2: Efficiency

Because root canals are all we do, endodontists are efficient and precise. This equates to positive experiences, and efficient and predictable care.

Reason 3: Availability

Amarillo Endodontics offers tremendous flexibility in accommodating emergency cases, so delays in treatment are kept to a minimum and patients can be relieved of dental pain quickly. 

Reason 4: Advanced Technology

Our office chooses to invests in state-of-the-art technology such as operating microscopes, digital imaging, ultrasonic instrumentation and fiber optics, and cone beam 3-D imaging to better treat our patients more thoroughly and comfortably, resulting in faster treatment times, and more predictable results.

Root canals are not what they used to be…in most cases, treatment can be completed in a single appointment, and frequently in less than an hour, all with your comfort in mind.
