Are you implementing new and effective oral health care treatments to ensure that your smile can continue to thrive? One of those vulnerable areas of your smile lies within your teeth. Within a tooth lies the pulp, which is considered the life force of the tooth as it has the connective tissues, nerve endings and blood vessels designed to sustain the tooth. Endodontics is a term used for describing a specialized field of dentistry specifically designed for caring for the pulp of a tooth. Questions concerning endodontics can be found below:
