What is Endodontics?

Endodontists are the dentists that deal with diseases of dental pulp and its surrounding structures. Endodontic treatment can be accomplished by general practitioners, but they often refer complicated cases to those who have additional experience in this specialized field as an endodonitsts.

Tooth anatomy is a bit more complicated than most things we think about everyday, but it's important for understanding endodontic treatment. Teeth have several different layers- the outside coating being enamel which supports dentin inside of it where there lives nerve cells and blood vessels that help form our teeth during development time. The pulp of a tooth can survive without its nourishment supply because it receives nutrients from vessels that enter the end of root. Although this part is vital during tooth development, it's not necessary for functioning teeth; ultimately these structures continue to get their sustenance through layers outside them even after removing all traces or puss-filled sacs inside.

The healing rate for endodontic therapy is (>90%). Your dentist will discuss this with you before an procedure to make sure it's right for the condition of your teeth and gums.

Why would I need Endodontic treatment?

If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected due to bacteria invasion, endodontic treatment is necessary. The most common reasons for inflammation and infection are deep cavities (caries), repeated dental procedures like tooth fillings that don't fully heal properly which can lead them being pushed outwards creating more room in your mouth so food particles go between these cracks making it hard chew normal foods without pain , cracking of teeth along with chips/cracks where there should be none - this may sound insignificant but those little things add up over time.

Signs and Symptoms

It's always important to get emergency dental treatment as soon as possible. Some signs that your teeth might need endodontic care include:

  • Prolonged exposure to cold or heat can cause tissues in your body
  • Teeth begin to discolor
  • Swelling of the gums

How Can Endodontic Treatment help me?

Highly trained endodontists (dental specialists) repair tissues inside the tooth in intricate ways. They diagnose and treat complex causes of tooth pain, such as tooth abscess (infection) and they work to save your natural tooth. Afterwards, you will return to your dentist , who will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function.

What is a Root Canal?

Root canals are a great way to save your teeth from being destroyed by the continued pressure of decay. If you have an infected tooth, it could lead not only towards discomfort but also potential infection in other parts surrounding that region as well! A root canal will remove all nerve and blood supply so there's no chance for any complications during this procedure which requires some pretty intricate techniques involving dental instruments like endodontic therapy or surgery after completion if necessary depending on exactly what needs repairing within someone’s mouth
