What is Endodontic Treatment?

Endodontics is the process of treating problems involving the inside of the tooth, an area known as the "pulp". It has nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. It can become inflamed or infected because of many reasons: 1. Deep decay, 2. Traumatic injury, 3. And just repeated dental work on the same tooth. When this happens the Endodontist is who you see.

What is the Goal of Endodontic Treatment?

Endodontics is to relieve pain and clear any infection. After the treatment is completed the tooth can be prepared for a final resoration.
