It’s very easy for an oral accident or injury to ruin your holiday season. However, if you have suffered severe damage to your teeth which has led to pulp damage or infection, it will need to be removed with an endodontic treatment such as a root canal therapy. If left untreated, tooth death is imminent.
In the United States alone, endodontic treatments including root canals save millions of teeth every year. In addition, root canal treatments can help aid in restoring functions such as chewing foods and speaking properly. They also help your smile avoid the dangers that come with missing teeth if extractions would be done instead. Furthermore, a root canal therapy can, in some instances, effectively restore a tooth for a lifetime of use.
Endodontics refers to a specialty branch of dentistry which focuses precisely on the pulp of a tooth. Due to the intricate nature of endodontic treatments, at least two years of complex medical training beyond traditional dental school is required for endodontists. Once they have received the training, there will can perform multifaceted surgical procedures including root canal therapies.
