Are you familiar with the term endodontics? Endodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry designed specifically to treat issues arising with the pulp of your tooth. A tooth’s pulp is often considered the life source of a tooth, as it houses a tooth’s connective tissues, nerve endings, and blood vessels responsible for breathing life into a tooth. However, if a pulp is damaged, a tooth will require a treatment such as a root canal to save the tooth.
Root canal therapy is an endodontics treatment that saves teeth that otherwise may need to be extracted. If the pulp of a tooth has sustained damage, a root canal therapy can effectively remove the with a pulp without sacrificing the life of the tooth.
In the United States every year, millions of teeth are saved with endodontic treatments. In fact, a single root canal treatment may be able to save the tooth for the rest of its lifespan. Root canal treatment can help damaged teeth to become functional once more. It also eliminates the need for an artificial tooth replacement to be installed.
