Root Canal Treatment & Endodontics

It is said that an endodontist saves the lives of teeth. This complex area of dentistry, which can require additional training, looks at the health of a tooth from within and commonly performs root canal treatment in order to save a tooth that may otherwise be extracted.

What is endodontics?

Endodontics is more commonly known as root canal treatment, and is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease or injury to the dental pulp. The most common causes of pulpal injury are extensive decay, trauma (such as a blow to the tooth), cracks and gum disease. When the pulp is exposed to bacteria, infection can occur. If left untreated, this can build up to form an abscess.

Treatment involves the removal of infected pulp tissue and cleaning the inside of the roots so they can finally be sealed, and the tooth restored to function.

The role of endodontists

For patients, the most common reason you may see an endodontist is if you need root canal treatment. This is when the pulp within the root of the tooth becomes infected.

You can also see an endodontist if you are suffering from tooth or facial pain where the cause is difficult to identify. Endodontists have been trained to identify and treat the causes of complicated tooth and facial pain.
