Endodontics

Endodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases or injury to the dental pulp of a tooth.  When the pulp (soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) becomes inflamed or diseased, root canal treatment is necessary.  During root canal treatment, your dentist removes the diseased pulp with special files and the pulp chamber is cleaned and sealed. 

Causes of an infected pulp:

  • Deep Cavity
  • Cracked or Broken Tooth
  • Injury to the tooth
