What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is a field in dentistry that concerns the biology and pathology of the root tissues and the dental pulp of the tooth. The word endodontics comes from the Greek word “endo,” meaning inside, and “ordont,” meaning tooth. This type of treatment provides solutions to problems in the patient’s pulp tissue within the tooth.
An endodontist is a specialist who specializes in maintaining the teeth through endodontic therapy. They have advanced training in this field of dentistry and have studied additional years after finishing dental school. All dentists are trained for endodontic treatment, but some teeth can be challenging to diagnose and treat – this is where endodontists can help. Their focus is to save the patient’s teeth by performing the various treatments and sometimes perform surgery to address the tooth’s problems. For instance, Root Canal Therapy can stop the pain immediately and save the fragile tooth from an extraction or from falling off.
