Endodontics

Info

If a tooth is damaged by decay or injury, the canals inside the root of the tooth may become infected. If the infection is not treated, it can lead to severe pain, abscess and tooth loss. Fortunately, the infection can be removed from the tooth and and the tooth can be restored to normal function. This treatment is also known as a root canal. Root canal treatment is one of the most successful of all dental procedures and enables you to keep your teeth for your lifetime.

Endodontics is the advanced specialty involved with treating and preservation of the pulp of a tooth and its surrounding tissues

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes, such as repeated dental procedures on the tooth, a crack or chip in the tooth, but it is usually the result of deep tooth decay (cavity).

The treatment begins by administering a local anesthetic to relieve pain. This will numb the tooth and surrounding area so that the treatment is no more uncomfortable than a filling. A common misconception is that root canal treatment is a painful experience when in actuality, it’s quite the opposite.
