What Is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the study and treatment of dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of teeth. The dental pulp is the soft tissue that is located in the center of the tooth, and it contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. Endodontic treatment is often necessary when the dental pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to decay, trauma, or other factors.

An endodontist is a dental specialist who has received advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of dental pulp and surrounding tissues. Endodontic treatment may involve procedures such as root canal therapy, which involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp, cleaning and shaping the root canal system, and filling the space with a special material. Other endodontic procedures may include endodontic surgery or retreatment of a previously treated tooth.
