Endodontics

Endodontics deals with the treatment of diseases and injuries to the dental pulp, root and surrounding tissues of the teeth.

Endodontists perform a variety of procedures including endodontic therapy(commonly known as “root canal therapy”), endodontic retreatment, surgery, treating cracked teeth, and treating dental trauma. Root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures. If the dental pulp (containing nerves, arterioles, venules ,lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue) becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is required to save the tooth.
