Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of anomalies within the pulp or root. The dental pulp (nerve) is inside the canal, which is located in each root of the tooth. The pulp consists of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue, which plays an important role in developing and maintaining the vitality of the tooth.
Endodontic treatment is carried out when tooth decay has destroyed the tooth deeply under the enamel and dentin inside and came up to the pulp. The penetration of toxins and bacteria cause infection of the pulp, leading to augmentation of the sensitivity of the teeth when biting. If the tooth with inflammation is not treated, it leads to the spread of infection in the bone, creating the tip around of the root. The priority of our dentists is to cure and preserve the tooth and its root, but the therapy requires patience that is often an essential and necessary part in the endodontic treatment of teeth.
