Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the treatment and study of dental pulp. The dental pulp, which lies within the tooth, includes the tooth’s connective tissue, cells, nerves, and blood vessels. If the pulp becomes diseased or injured, the result is often serious tooth sensitivity or pain. If damaged dental pulp goes untreated, the tooth may die and need an extraction. Endodontic treatment can restore the health of the tooth and prevent the need of tooth extraction.
Root canal therapy is the most common type of endodontic treatment. During root canal therapy, which is often called a root canal, our dentists removes the infected, injured tissues from the tooth, cleans the tooth thoroughly, and fills the tooth. After root canal treatment is complete, a dental restoration, like a dental crown, is placed to protect the tooth and restore its structure and appearance.
Other endodontic treatments include root canal retreatment, apicoectomy, pulpal debridement, and pulpotomy.
