An endodontist is a specialist in prevention, diagnosis, and the treatment of the diseases of pulpal origin. This field of study is called Endodontics and an Endodontist specializes in this area of dentistry. The pulp, which is the connective tissue inside the tooth, resides in the root canal space. Root canal therapy is cleaning the root canal spaces of diseased or infected teeth and filling that space with a plastic filling material to prevent its re-infection. Although the majority of root canals are done by general dentists across the nation, an endodontist is a formally trained specialist whose practice is limited to non-surgical and surgical root canal therapy and is experienced and equipped with treatment of the more complicated, challenging endodontic cases. He performs the procedure on daily basis and is highly trained for the best treatment outcome.
And Endodontist completes a two-three year postdoctoral fellowship and residency in the field of endodontics and gains further experience in this field. There currently are less than 40 practicing endodontists in Madrid.
Following Graduation from European University of Madrid, Dr. Aranguren completed a two year fellowship in Endodontics at Southern Mississippi University. He has been on the faculty at European University of Madrid for the past ten years and an adjunct professor at Tufts Dental School for the past two years.
