Restore Tooth Health
Endodontics is the area of dentistry focused on the study and treatment of the dental pulp. The pulp is the innermost layer of the tooth and includes the tooth’s living connective tissue and cells. It also houses the tooth nerves and blood vessels. If this area of the tooth becomes injured or diseased, it often results in serious tooth pain and sensitivity. When infection and damage in the dental pulp goes untreated, they can cause the tooth to die. The goal of endodontic treatment is to restore the health of the tooth and prevent the need for tooth extraction.
During root canal therapy, our dentist removes the injured and infected tissues from the tooth, thoroughly cleans the tooth, and fills the tooth. The tooth is then filled with a restoration.
