Endodontics

Endodontics

Endodontics is the area of dentistry concerned with the health and treatment of the dental pulp, the living part of your tooth where the nerves are located.

If the pulp becomes infected by bacteria, the result can be severe pain and discomfort. Untreated tooth infections can also have severe consequences for your overall health. To treat the pulp and to save your tooth and smile, you may require a root canal procedure.

If the thought of a root canal makes you nervous, we understand. But, the root canal is generally painless and will have you feeling better in no time.

During the root canal procedure, the nerves are removed from the root canal, and the space is filled with a composite material that helps to strengthen the tooth's root, which allows it to function normally for biting and chewing after the procedure. Removing the root and cleaning out the root canal removes bacteria and relieves pain quickly.

Reasons You May Need a Root Canal

A root canal may be necessary if you have:

  • Tooth decay
  • Severely damaged teeth
  • Cracked teeth or broken teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Darkened teeth
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods/liquids
